"Good morning ; Welcome to Flight 2021. We are prepared to take off into the New Year. Please make sure your Positive Attitude and Gratitude are secured and locked in the upright position. All self-destruct devices; pity, anger, selfishness and resentment should be turned off at this time. All negativity, hurt and discouragement should be put away. Should you lose your positive Attitude under pressure during this flight, reach up and pull down a prayer. Prayers will automatically be activated by Faith. Once your Faith is activated, you can assist other passengers who are of little faith. There will BE NO BAGGAGE allowed on this flight. God, our Captain has cleared us for take-off.

I don't know where it originated, but it works for me.

2021 - I'm a Casual Traveler for 8 weeks in the 5% Winter Challenge.

2020 - I started recording on Spark People June 13 weighing 198.6
I joined the twelve week Biggest Loser Challenge in September. With the Groovy Geckos support I lost 9+ pounds. A lot happened that fall. Two family members needed extra help, so I switched to a new challenge for January.
