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.

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+ lite

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
