I had lunch with a good friend today. Got me to thinking about how awesome friendship is. I've got some pretty great friends - some as far back as elementary school and some as new as last week.

Here's a list of some things that I'm most thankful for:
  • My friends accept me
  • My friends are encouragers
  • We pray for each other
  • We cheer each other in our accomplishments
  • Help is never far away, I just have to ask
  • I can bear my soul and find understanding
Thank you dear friends.
Enjoying my life,

What are you most thankful for in your friendships?

Goals For My Weight Loss Journey

I've been a member of Weight Watchers since May, 2011. I have had some success in losing weight, but I'm not happy where I am in this stage of the game. I've met some great people at my meetings and I'm thankful for all the support that I have from my family and friends. I've been lax in setting goals and I realize that I haven't had anything specific to reach for. I have eight weeks of weigh-ins until the end of the year and have set five goals to meet by that time.

My Goals to meet by December 31, 2011 are:

1. Every day, I will track what I eat. Our WW leader challenged us last night to track every day. As incentive, we will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card at the end of the month.

2. I will meet the recommended Good Health Guidelines by drinking enough liquid, getting my healthy oils in and taking a multivitamin.

3. I will choose to eat Power Foods such as fruits, veggies, whole grains and low-fat dairy.

4. I will participate in a 5K. My WW buddies and I decided that we need to have something to work toward in getting in our activity. Another WW leader shared with us that she always registered for a 5K to help her stay motivated to exercise. We are following her example and looking for a 5K to participate in.

5. I will lose 10% of my body weight by my weigh-in On December 27. That means I have to lose 2 lbs a week.

I believe that as I meet these five goals I will have success and feel better!

Let me hear from you...what goals have you set for yourself?

Enjoying my life...
