    I am lucky because I have a wonderful husband who is also doing LL and helping me through it.

    I have faced a challenging weekend with lots of food on offer, and have been able to refuse it.

    I have been sticking to the diet for a week and a half despite previously having no will power!

    I have a very generous mother who is helping towards the costs of the first 8 weeks of the diet.

    For the first time in a very very long time, I can really see myself reaching my goals, and feel positive about my future.

    So, why are you lucky?

    I am lucky....

    I have a supportive circle of friends and family around me

    I have best friends that I have been friends with my entire life

    I found the courage to face things I thought I could not change, and change them

    I have a roof over my head, cloths on my back and food in my belly

    Noone I know is in Iraq/Afghanistan

    I have a willfull spirit

    I am changing myself before it is too late

    I have made some wonderful friends here

    I love the rain and it rains here a lot

    One day I get to move back to California and settle on our mountain that awaits us



    Thats good for starters.

    I'm lucky because:

    I was born in the 'west' in the 21st century, so don't have to fight for survival, education, healthcare and equality (well - a bit for equality ;0)

    I have a loving family who brought me up believing I could achieve anything

    I have a great boyfriend whom I love and who loves me

    I have wonderful friends who watch my back, make me laugh and amaze me with their wisdom

    I have a fantastic job that rewards me in other ways than financial

    I have an inquisitive mind, sharp wit and sunny disposition

    I have sky plus.... sorry. But I do love it so..

    Lots of reasons why I'm lucky and lots of things to be grateful for. Thanks for starting this post!

    I am lucky because I have 5 beautiful daughters, and 5 beautiful grandchilden.

    I have a lovely husband whom if I cloned would be worth a fortune. He is extremely fit and looks like Cliff Richard and can sing just as good, if not better.

    I have fulfilled my dream with horses, and been extrememly successful at it.

    I am comfortably off, and dont want for anything (at the mo whilst we are still working anyway)

    I have found this thing called LIGHTERLIFE.

    I have a wicked sense of humour.

    I carry my age extremenly well, especially on the telephone:D:D

    My health is improving with every 1lb I lose.

    I am lucky enough to be looking forward to being 60 this year, cant wait. Free bus pass, prescriptions etc and pay no more NI stamp.

    I am going back to Egypt for my holiday again this year whoooopeeeee

    I am lucky to have made such wonderful supportive friends who help me on my journey.

    AND most of all.

    I am alive.

    I am lucky because:
    • I found lighterlife when I am still young enough to make the most of the rest of my life but old enough to appreciate it. (I don't think I could have done this when I was younger, even though I needed it).
    • I have a lovely husband who supports me in anything I do.
    • I have a beautiful, happy, healthy little girl, for which I am grateful for every day.
    • I have a lovely family, and every one of them has been totally positive about me doing LL.
    • I have my health (which is now much improved)
    • I don't ache any more.
    • We have a lovely home, which we have worked hard for, but still feel we aren't grown up enough for yet :D
    • I have been lucky enough to be able to take time off to take care of my daughter until she goes to school.
    • I am lucky enough to be able to get back to work this year ;).
    • I have a pair of size 10 jeans that I can get on without laying on the bed and zipping them with a coat hanger.
    • I have made a whole bunch of new friends, on minimins and in my LL group.

    Wow I LOVE this thread...

    I am lucky because...

    • I have a honest, faithful, thoughful and generous husband who loves me
    • I have a happy, healthy, active, mischevious three year old son
    • I have a supportive Mum who I owe so much too and will always be grateful for
    • Thanks to LL and CD I am now healthy
    • Through LL and CD I have found MYSELF, the person who was too embarrassed to be noticed
    • Thanks to LL I have found the two best friends I always thought I should have had but for some reason never did and I love them
    • I'm going to Mexico with the above mentioned LL/CD diet queens in March on my first ever girly beach holiday (I'm 28)
    • We may not own our own home, we may not drive flashy new cars, but we earn enough money to have a nice house filled with nice things and send our son to a good nursery school.
