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.

Live the way you want to be remembered.

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.
Release: to free from something that binds, fastens, or holds back, to let go.

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.

A little bit bohemian. (bō-hē′mē-ən) n.
A person with artistic or literary interests who disregards conventional standards of behavior.

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.

A few of my favorite quotes:
“Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?” ~Danielle LaPorte

“Where’s your will to be weird?” ~Jim Morrison

"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.

    emoticon Renee`, you are doing Great on your weight loss journey!!! Thank you for posting on our "THE NEW Lose 25 Pounds in 25 Weeks, TEAM Challenge". We just have 5 weeks to go on this Challenge. We will be starting a new one on Dec. 28, 2020.

    I emoticon on the team. We need each other for accountability and support. I have had to make a few changes in my calorie in take and exercises while still staying with low carbs and IF. I found out that I had slowed down my metabolism by not eating enough calories or getting enough steps in each day.

    It's Friday once again, and time to start our weekend off with a smile.
    I hope you'll get a giggle or two out of these quips from the younger ones.

    Kids Do Say The Darndest Things

    "Mommy, today in school I was punished for something that I didn't do."
    "I'm going to have to talk with your teacher about this!", her mother replied
    "By the way, what was it that you didn't do?"
    "My homework." she replied.

    "Jimmy, why are you home from school so early?'
    "I got sent home early because I was the only one who could answer a question."
    "Oh, really? What was the question?"
    "Who threw the blackboard eraser at the teacher?"

    A little boy watched as his grandmother blew out the candles on her birthday cake.
    "Grandma, how old are you?"
    "39 and holding. . .", she replied.
    "Grandma . . . how old would you be if you let go?"

    Heard in a Sunday school class. . .
    "Danny, does your family say grace before eating?"
    "No, ma'am. We don't have to." "My mom is a good cook."

    A mother invited a couple of their neighbors to dinner one Saturday evening.
    After the families were seated at the table, she turned to her six-year-old daughter and said, “Susie, would you like to say the blessing?”

    “I don't know what to say,” Susie replied.

    “Just say what you hear Mommy say.”, her mother replied, smiling.
    Susie bowed her head, folded her hands, and said,
    “Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”

    Thanks for dropping by my page this week with your rays of sunshine, and a little bit of cheer!
    I hope you have a Happy Friday, and a wonderful weekend!
