Thankful Thursday

What am I thankful for today? I am thankful for my life. I am thankful for each day and for the opportunity that I have to share each day with my husband, daughter, and son. I am thankful for my extended family and for friends.

Today I realized something else I am grateful for. I am grateful for the opportunity to lose weight and get back to living a healthy lifestyle. Years ago I lost weight through eating right and exercise, following Weight Watchers guide to getting me back on track.  I said I would never gain that weight back. However, here I am again, 6 years later, saying that I need to lose weight. I have been saying it for years. I guess I have been disappointed that I haven't worked super hard to be healthy. And that is what it all comes down to. I want to be healthy. I want to be healthy to be a wife to my husband. I want to be healthy to be a mom to my two kiddos.  I want to be healthy to be a daughter, sister, aunt. I want to be healthy to be a good friend. I want to be healthy to serve God wherever he puts me.

So, today, I am thankful for another day, another opportunity to get this right. I need encouragement. I need support. But most of all, I need to realize that each day is a gift, and I want to make the most of each one.

Thank you to my friend Crystal for sharing the Living a Changed Life blog with me. I hope it will help me with good ideas on my weight loss journey!
