On a spark-break....

Many thanks to the ones visiting my page and leaving nice comments and goodies!

I’ve been on SP for a long time. I’ve lost and gained back a lot of weight over these years. I’m determined to finally take full control, get fit, and get off this stupid roller coaster.
I feel like a misplaced islander.
I’m pretty sure I was a mermaid in a past life.
2021 My word of the year is Improve
I did ok with Release last year but I want to improve on all of it this year.

2020 My word of the year is Release.
Release: free from something that binds, fastens, or holds back, to let go.
Take chances! Be bold, be silly, be weird!

Accept what is; release what was; have faith in what will be.

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

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

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.

    Thanks for adding me as one of your friends! I'll do the same!!

    I was a member on SP for almost 5 months before I got my act together and started loosing. In fact, during that 5 months I actually GAINED some weight. But with the resources here, the friends I've made, and the motivation and inspiration they give me, I've been able to make some progress.

    Has it been easy? NO! Have I always been successful? NO! My weight is like a bouncing ball...I hit a new low, then bounce up several pounds, work to take that off and a little more, hit another new low, and bounce again. But the overall outcome has been downward, which is the goal!

    Best of luck to you and I look forward to getting to know you...a fellow Hawaiian at heart!
