Accept what is; release what was; have faith in what will be.
Take chances! Be bold, be silly, be weird!

Make time for your wellness
or you will be forced to make time for your illness.

I'm still here.
2020 is my year to release this fat!!
I am just so sick of myself and the same ol’ excuses every year, same ol fat me every year. Full Stop. Deep Breath. Release.

My word of the year: Release.
Release fat.
Release bad habits.
Release fears.
Release clutter.

Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.

I feel like a misplaced islander.
I’m pretty sure I was a mermaid in a past life.

I’ve been on SP for a long time. I’ve lost and gained back a lot of weight over these years. Up, down, up, down, up.... This year I’m determined to lose the weight again, get fit, and get off this stupid roller coaster.


Member Since: 3/21/2007

Fitness Minutes: 22,245

My Goals:
Health.

Release 80 lbs this year.

Specific weight goals along the way....
199.8 - finally under 200
191 - I go from obese to overweight BMI
158 - I go from overweight to normal BMI
152 - goal by the end of 2020


My Program:
~Keto: counting total carbs (made a BIG difference from counting net carbs) eating fish, shrimp, turkey, chicken, some beef and pork, cheese, small salads, a little broccoli, a little cauliflower, celery, half servings of nuts and a little red wine (I have a 4 oz glass). Right now I'm not eating much by way of fruits, but will, very occasionally have a couple of strawberries or an avocado (gotta watch those carefully, the carbs in fruit add up fast.) I have full fat Caesar dressing on my salads, use real cream in my coffee, real mayo in my tuna and cook with lots of real butter, coconut oil and olive oil. When I need a little chocolate, I have a square of 90% dark.
~Drink: I have tea, coffee, and an occasional Sprite Zero or Coke Zero, and enjoy unsweetened fizzy waters and try to drink at least 2 liters of water each day.
~Exercise: 30 min on ebike 5 nights per week, but I'm often hit and miss on the exercise.
By the numbers: under 20 total carbs, under 1500 calories, 2+ liter

A few of my favorite quotes:

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." ~Maya Angelou

“I am a question to the world, not an answer to be heard or a moment that's held in your arms. And what do you think you'd ever say? I won't listen anyway. You don't know me. And I'll never be what you want me to be.”~ John Rzeznik ~ Lyrics to I'm Still Here ~ Treasure Planet

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.” ~Dr. Seuss

    Hallelujah! It's Friday! What a blessing!
    Here are some funny church bulletin postings.

    Mrs. Jones remains in the hospital and needs blood donors for more transfusions.
    She also is having trouble sleeping and requests tapes of Pastor Nelson's sermons.

    The Choir director invites any member of the congregation who enjoys sinning to join the choir.

    The ladies of the church have cast off clothing of every kind.
    They may be seen in the church basement on Friday afternoon.

    Our new associate minister unveiled the church's new tithing campaign
    slogan last Sunday: I upped my pledge - up yours!

    A new cookbook is being compiled by the ladies of the church.
    Please submit your favorite recipe with a short antidote for it.

    Ladies don't forget the rummage sale. It's a good chance to get rid
    of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don't forget your husbands.

    Tip of the day: How do they make holy water? They boil the hell out of it!

    Enjoy your weekend!

    It's Friday once again! I think these jokes will be just what the doctor ordered to tickle your funny bone because they're actually quite "humerous."

    A mother complained to the family doctor that her daughter laid in bed all day long, and all she would eat is yeast and car wax." "What will happen to her, doctor?"
    He replied, "Eventually she will rise and shine."

    Funny medical one-liners, exactly as typed by medical secretaries:

    Patient has left her white blood cells at another hospital.

    Patient has chest pain if she lies on her left side for over a year.

    On the second day the knee was better and on the third day it disappeared.

    The patient has been depressed since she began seeing me in 1993.

    Discharge status: Alive, but without my permission.

    Patient has two teenage children, but no other abnormalities.


    What did the man say to the x-ray technician after swallowing some coins?
    A: "Do you see any change in me?"

    Why did the doctor tell his nurse to be very quiet while walking past the supply cabinet?
    A: So she wouldn't wake the sleeping pills.


    Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to his doctor to get a physical. A few days later the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.

    During his follow-up visit the following week, the doctor greeted Morris and said, "You're really doing great, aren't you?!"
    Morris replied, "Just doing what you said, Doc. Get a hot mamma and be cheerful."
    The doctor replied, "I didn't say that. I said, you've got a heart murmur. Be careful!"

    Finally, here's your Tip of the Day . . . "Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died." - Erma Bombeck

    If these jokes have given you a headache, take two aspirin, and text me in the morning.

    Enjoy your weekend!
