Happy Gobble Gobble Day!

What a year it's been! I'm thankful for so much that I have to share just a few....

I'm thankful for an awesome hubby.

I'm thankful for the most amazing kid I could ever ask for. She makes my world go round.

I'm thankful for my parents and sisters. We've only grown closer as we get older and I appreciate our relationships so much.

I'm thankful for good health.

I'm thankful for a good job.

I'm thankful to be able to attend school.

I'm thankful for amazing friends (I'll tell you more about them later this week).

I'm thankful for Weight Watchers. I've kept it hush hush because I was so afraid of failure, but I can spill the beans now. Since the end of June (right after Hershey Park), I've lost just about 40 pounds and have dropped 3 dress sizes. I've still got about 20 pounds to go, but I feel so much more in control of my health. I know I could have done it on my own, but the structure of WW has been amazing to help keep me in check.

I'm thankful for Zumba for not feeling like exercise at all.

I'm thankful for the crafts that keep me sane.

I'm thankful for all you crazy, crafting, Internet peeps who keep me inspired.

Last, but not least, I'm super thankful for the invention of cannoli cake. Holy wow, delicious!

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!

Christina, that is awesome! I've been on WW for a while, but I am sort of lazy so my weight loss is very slow.

Happy Thanksgiving!

They put me on a WW like diet when I was PG w/Mooch. It was the first time in a long time my thighs didn't rub! Congrats on all the loss!

You are amazing! 40 pounds is so awesome! Congratulations! I was 50 pounds lighter before I had my kids - man, what I wouldn't give to be that thin again!
