I have much to be thankful for, as do all of us if we think about it and look at the positive rather than the negative:
For starters, of course, I am thankful to be alive at age 66. Many don’t make it that far.
I am thankful that I have made it this far in fairly good health. I do take drugs for high blood pressure (more on that later).
I am thankful that I had the good sense to recognize at the beginning of this year that I was getting dangerously obese. Further, I am thankful that I had the good sense and willpower to do something about it. I joined a fitness center where I work out 3 times a week, stopped eating junk food and switched to a diet of mostly fresh organic fruits and vegetable and lean meat and fish (also organic when I can find it). A few months ago, I added long walks to this lifestyle change. I have lost 70 pounds and feel much better. I stopped taking one of the two blood pressure drugs several months ago and I’m now taking only half a pill of the other each day, yet keeping my pressure down simply because of the weight loss and some breathing exercises that lower blood pressure and also help you lose weight.
I am thankful for good friends and relative.
