    Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
    If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

    Be thankful when you don't know something,
    for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

    Be thankful for the difficult times.
    During those times you grow.

    Be thankful for your limitations,
    because they give you opportunities for improvement.

    Be thankful for each new challenge,
    because it will build your strength and character.

    Be thankful for your mistakes.
    They will teach you valuable lessons.

    Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
    because it means you've made a difference.

    It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
    A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
    are also thankful for the setbacks.

    Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
    Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
    and they can become your blessings.

    May you have a very Happy Thanksgiving. I will be counting your friendship among my many blessings. Thank you for being my friend.
    Blessings and hugs,
    Helen

    Hi Janet,
    Have a great and safe Labor Day Weekend and may all your plans become a smashing reality! It's the last blast of summer!! Fall is just around the corner.
    I think we are taking our boat out and just enjoying the weekend quietly. Maybe DD and I will ride and/or walk the bike trail that is down by the boat club.
    May God continue to bless you.
    Hugs,
    Helen

    Hi Janet, I was reading some threads today and saw that you had joined our 50+ Members Team so I thought I would stop by, say hi, and welcome you to the team. I also want to welcome you to our High Blood Pressure Team. You will receive lots of support and encouragement from everyone. Just post any prayer requests, questions, comments or suggestions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
    You have come to the right place. Take advantage of what Spark has to offer. I want to see you accomplish your goals. Stay focused and keep a positive attitude as this will be a great help to you in your daily life!!! Smile although sometimes that is the hardest, but it really helps!!! And, if nothing else, it makes people wonder what you're up to.
    Remember to just take one day at a time on this journey of a lifetime. This journey consists of many small steps, a few speed bumps and pot holes, and a lot of fun. I will be here for you and try to help you on this journey to your goals. YOU can do this!!!
    Commit yourself to constant self-improvement — the joy is truly in the journey! You are creating a body that is strong and balanced!
    Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily. Watch your portion control. Be sure to drink plenty of water (8 - 8oz glasses a day) and walk. Water and walking will help you on this journey of weight loss and lowering numbers. Start small if that is all you can do or have time to do and add to it as you are able. Even 5-10 minutes several times a day adds up to bigger numbers and will keep you moving. Invest in a good pedometer (about $10) and see how many steps you currently take each day. Before long you will be adding steps just to see how many you can do and how far you can go. WHAT A GREAT MOTIVATOR!!! YOU can do this!!! I am disabled and this works for me. Take each day one small step at a time — they'll add up over time.
    You can make a choice. Tell that little voice to cease and desist with those negative thoughts. Introduce positive self-talk into your life today! You are creating a body that is strong and balanced! From your own efforts, you will make a difference, and you will feel good about yourself. You are a unique, beautiful, and rare individual — the one and only you!
    It's good to meet and have you with us. I have added you to my friends. Hope you don't mind. Will get a chance to chat with you later. Have a great week!
    God bless you on your journey to a healthier you. Take each day as it comes and enjoy it to the fullest!!!
    Hugs,
    Helen

    "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift – thus called the Present."

    "If you planted hope in a heart today in any hopeless heart,
    If someone's burden was lighter because you did your part,
    If you caused a laugh that chased a tear away,
    If tonight your name is mentioned when someone kneels to pray,
    Then your day was well spent."

    Hi Janet. I have the same problem as you have and have spent most of my life in the starvation mode. They call it malnhutrition. I am adding to to my friendship list so if you would like you can count me as one of your budies. I am 66 almost and live in Boise Idaho. Where are you at? Good to meet you.
