I'm Thankful For...My Health

Today I'm thankful for my health.  All my life I've been really healthy.  I've never been in the hospital or had any surgeries (except for my lap-band).  Up until this last year, I hadn't even been to the doctor since I was 12 years old other than routine check-ups.  Considering all of the extra weight I have been carrying for years, it's really amazing that I didn't have more health problems.  This last year I was having problems with different things and I really think it was weight related.  Since having the surgery, I've felt great and haven't been sick.

I know many of us struggle with health problems, but we can be thankful that we woke up today and that we are given the opportunity to take charge of our health.  By losing weight, eating good food, and exercising we are all choosing to be healthy.


  1. If you don't have your health nothing else matters!

  2. That is one of the best parts of this entire journey!!

  3. Andrea, I have really been enjoying your thankful series of posts. Every day, they make me realized what I'm thankful for too. Big hugs, girlie!
