This is a time of year that many of us stop and take the time to reflect on the past year.  It is also a great time to reflect on the things that we are thankful for.  I was contacted by Oscar Insurance, a health insurance company that services New York and New Jersey, to participate in their #WeAreThankful campaign and share a few things from this past year I am thankful for.

1.  I am thankful that I did not give up on myself like I have so many times before.  I spent the first six months of 2014 stuck at what I thought was a plateau that would last forever.  However, I didn't want to let myself down again nor all of you so I pushed and made it through it and lost another 20 lbs this year bringing my total weight loss to 50+ lbs.  Hard work and determination really pay off!

2.  I am thankful for all the wonderful people I have met this year via this blog and social media.  Although, I have not met these people face to face, I consider them friends because they encourage me day in and day out and have been so kind to me.  If any of you are reading this please know how dear to me you are.

3.   Last but not least I am eternally thankful for the love of a good man and the opportunity to be a mother to one spunky little girl.  They have loved me through my darkest times and have shown me the meaning of unconditional love.

What are you thankful for?


  1. So sweet!! 50 Pounds is amazing--and your sweet family is precious!!
