Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth. ~Katherine Mansfield

I am doing the hardest thing on earth for me - taking a break from all the expectations I place on myself and that others place on me. I am taking the time I need to heal. I am focusing on learning how to let go and forgive.

I am not losing weight so that I can love myself. I am learning to love myself. Right now. Exactly as I am. I expect that when I release my pain, I will release the unhealthy habits that brought me to this place and will lose the weight as a natural consequence.

Each healthy decision is an act of kindness towards myself.

To create a healthy lifestyle one small choice at a time.

Above everything else, I try each day, each moment, to make the healthiest choices I can for myself.

I had RYN surgery Feb 2016 & am learning how to eat healthy on a bariatric diet.

I do body weight exercises for ST and walk for cardio. I also compete in monthly horse agility competitions and ride 2-3 times per week.

Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure. Don Wilder and Bill Rechin

No matter how slow you run, it is still faster than someone sitting on a couch. Joe Kelly

For my Sunny Gals:

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable. �Joseph Addison

Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and follow where they lead. �Louisa May Alcott

True friendship brings sunshine to the shade, and shade to the sunshine.
