Thankful Thursday

I am so thankful I weighed myself today even though I also weighed on Wednesday. Yesterday it was 161 which meant that I gained another 1/2 pound (with sneakers on because I walked there). Tonight after I stopped at the UPS store to mail the Connections Academy computer back and then at K-Mart to pick up Elise's Olan Mills pictures I stopped at Publix to weigh. I had my slip on shoes on so I stepped barefooted up on the scale and I was down to 158 which is 1/2 pound less than my last low weight post. I worked out in the yard yesterday and today even though it was 110 degrees with the heat index and I walked down our lane to get the mail. Could be water loss from sweating in sweltering summer sun but I am thankful for even that. I am thankful for Robin continuing in this weight loss endeavor. I am thankful that Susan feels close enough to list me as her contact person in the event. I am thankful that even though the piano did not get delivered today, Kelly Piano is going to work around our schedule because of their snafu. I am thankful that Elise has taken good naps this week. I am thankful that my stuffed Bell Peppers were edible. (sauteed onion, garlic, mushrooms with ground beef, 1/2 cup brown rice and mozzarella) I am thankful that Marianne (the lady we rent from) brought over home grown tomatoes and cucumbers that made my lunch and dinner salads taste wonderful and were so good Elise and Emmett gobbled up some sliced on a plate. I am thankful that my mom watches my sweet neurotic dog ever time we go out of town or when we have company. I am thankful for a merciful God that continues to work in my life because of the grace through Jesus and that He always has good to give me a future and a hope! Thou has brought me to this place and He will lead me home. Thank you everyone for your Help.

very true. I need to journal what I'm thankful for. I'm hoping we get to meet tomorrow. Are you all coming to St. Augustine?
