    Hola!

    As today is Thursday I wanted to share with you all a weekly thing of mine...

    Whilst losing weight, or being unhappy with our weight, it's all too easy to focus on the negatives, and what we don't like;
    I hate my thighs, my tummy's too big, the weight's not coming off quick enough (insert negative comment here)
    All this negativity isn't good when you're trying to make a positive change in your lives.

    So, i'd like you to take part in what i like to call *Thankful Thursday*

    I'd like you to list 3 things you are thankful for.
    3 things that you know, makes your life just that little bit better :)

    My 3 for today are...

    1. My wonderful boyfriend Gav. He makes me feel like I can achieve anything I set my mind to.
    2. My previous Slimming World experiences. Although I didn't reach my target, it's given me the determination to do this once and for all.
    3. This forum. It gives me somewhere to vent my frustration and celebrate my success.

    Now, do me proud. :)

    Also, i can't stress enough how much I love this website;
    http://www.thankfulfor.com
    You can sign in via your Twitter or Facebook and share what you're Thankful For - Give it a go! :)

    being better!
    Seems like a good idea and i could do with some positivity these days;

    1. For being able to un-cancel christmas (husband found new job after being told he was going to be made redundant and the redundancies at my job that were going to start in january have now been postponed until at least March).
    2. For how wonderful and purry and loving our cats are.
    3. For whoever invented pink hair dye. It still cheers me up to see my hair colour after about 7 years.

    I am thankful for this site and the help I have had in losing weight, especially over the last couple of days while I have been struggling.

    For my lovely husband who has stood by through thick and thin

    For the fact that I am on holiday from today till next Tuesday
