Here’s this weeks Progress Prompts…and a good one, I might add

You have a lot to be grateful for as you lose weight, become active and feel good about yourself. Write a gratitude journal entry.

Wow, since I just hit my 50 lbs. gone, I truly am grateful for ALOT of things because of my weight loss.

First, I’m grateful to God, for always answering my prayers, and giving me the strength and courage to continue on this long, hard, sometimes frustrating, and yet obviously VERY rewarding journey.

I am grateful for my family and friends (near and far) who have been behind me and encouraged me, my entire journey!!

I’m grateful that because I am strong and am sticking with my program, that I will have a longer and healthier life with my girls, my husband, and my family.

Losing as much as I have, has really put things into perspective. Did you know that a gallon of water weighs approximately 8 lbs. ??? That means I have lost almost 7 JUGS OF WATER…can you even FATHOM carrying 7 jugs of water around with you all day long??? I’m grateful that I can DRINK those jugs of water now, instead of carrying them on me…I am grateful for these realizations.

I am grateful that I am learning to accept the compliments on my accomplishments now.

I am grateful for my 4-1/2 year old, who tells/asks me everyday, ‘Mommy, are you getting skinnier now???’…the love of a child is amazing…

I definitely think I could write a novel with this open journal entry topic.
