Being Grateful...

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough. - Oprah Winfrey

The Month of November is a busy time of the month, but it is also the month that we show that what we are most thankful for. Do you ever just look around and wonder or say to yourself that wow it's great to be alive. I do once and awhile. I am thankful for taking a breath each day and the day after that. I am so thankful for the people around me and the people I have met new and old. I am thankful for the new memories that I make each day and every day from now on. Then you remember the people that aren't here to be thankful. The month of November is the month I lost my mother. Though I don't exactly know her I do wish I could've met her. I am thankful that she and my dad created me and gave me life. I am thankful I am here today and I am thankful for living. What are you thankful for this year? Just remember that when we sit down for thanksgiving dinner this week make sure to be thankful for being with your family. You only get to live life once. Make sure you treasure it and live it to it's fullest extent.
On a good note I have lost 2.4  more pounds this week. Totaling 16.0 lbs lost. Super excited. I hit my 15 lb. mark and to celebrate I took a picture of myself.  I think I look pretty damn good if I say so myself.


What is your plan to avoid overindulging during holiday feasts?

During the holiday feast I plan on eating small portions and excercise more. I know I can't over eat or all my hard work will go down the drain but I know I can still savor all my favorite foods without eating too much. Smaller plates means smaller portions. I am also going to be drinking lots of water before the big meal so that I can limit my over eating.
