Three reasons I’m grateful: The Thanksgiving Day 2013 Edition

  • The love and support of my fabulous husband, known to long-time readers of this blog as TCB (The Cute Boy) or TCF (The Cute Fiance) but just plain Mick to me.

  • The fact that I walked a 5K with pretty killer hills this morning like it was something I do every day…because I do. I love how strong my body feels when I’m walking – as though I could go on and on forever. One year ago? Not so much.
  • Diabetes. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? The thing is, though, that it was the failure of daily insulin injections to lower my blood sugar readings even the tiniest bit and the realization that if I did nothing I would probably not see my 50th birthday (I’d just turned 45) that pushed me to do something – anything, really! – to change the way I was taking care of my body. Eventually it was that desire for change that led me to launch Project Me and that has changed my world forever.
