'Tis the season to be thankful!

Thursday, November 22, 2007

I'm thankful for:

-- feeling sore because it means my body is getting stronger.

--all this extra fat I'm carrying around so if I'm ever stranded in a hole somewhere, my body can feast off of itself for days....right?

--my healthy appetite because I'll try just about anything and will probably eat it all and that's a huge compliment to the cook (i.e. I'm a great guest at your dinner table).

--wearing a larger size because even though the stores might only put a few items out in those sizes, they're always still hanging there in the back looking all sad and lonely. The mediums and 6s and 8s always get purchased quickly.

--being thick-waisted because it seems to provide such delight to my little nieces and nephews to grab and poke at my stomach rolls when they see me.

--I'd probably be called "healthy" instead of "bony" and that definitely sounds better!

--my struggles with weight loss leading me to SparkPeople and meeting such wonderful cyberfriends, keeping me focused and informed, and motivating me to get off my rear and do something about it!

    Okay, SP is not sending my notifications... AARRRGGGHHH!

    Anyway, love the blog simply because you have taken where you are right now and found the positives. That is a wonderful trait -- one I do not possess. In the long run you probably are healthier than me!
