I Gotta Be Me

Lately I have been feeling the message that I don't need to fix me, just let the real me emerge. No, the girl in the red bikini is not me. I am now 64 years old. Yet, when I imagined my dream vision of what I'd like to look like, a trim, tan figure in a red bikini came to mind. When I googled "red bikini," this image came up....very close to my dream vision (except I'd have a little bigger muscles!). Since the vision came from somewhere, I'm stickin' to in for now.

Right now, I ...

Right now, I am working on my goals....
I plan to update my page gradually as I let myself emerge.

To date, I have lost 15 pounds on Spark and decreased my waist by 4 inches, getting rid of most of belly fat. My other measurements have not changed noticeably. It took me 1 1/2 years to do it. When I started, I was only just a pound into being considered "overweight" by the BMI charts. I am now in the middle of "normal" for the BMI charts. But, as we know, the BMI chart do not tell the whole story.

Now I want to work on health, body composition and endurance. I also want to continue to live a full & wonderful life and to "Live the life I'm meant to live."

There is nothing that we can give to the Lord to repay His goodness and mercy but we can give offering of praise to show our gratitude.

Thank you for the lovely and supportive comment on my blog. It really means a lot to me. Julie

“Your joy is your sorrow unmasked. And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears. And how else can it be? The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.”

Just want you to know that i appreciate that you checked in on my Mania blog. I did actually have a better sleep last night. I am feeling better, not so revved up.

It's nice to have friends who care to even say just a few words of concern. Thanks!

WooHoo, it's Friday; the perfect day to start liking your how you look! It really does not matter what size you are. So please stop listening to the media telling you that you have to be a size 0. Your dress size does determine who you are. Do not let them take the joy out of your life. What they tell you and say is not the truth. They have a hidden agenda which does not care about anyone but their wallet. Yet, we give the media so much power. It's time stop.

Now is the time to be happy with how you look. After all, you are God's masterpiece--100% made by Him. Now how can you NOT be beautiful? How can you NOT like how you look? God does not make anything unattractive.

I want you to know that you really are beautiful. You brighten my day and make me feel that I am special. Your inner beauty touches my life and I am so much better because of it. This my friend is what real beauty is, not a being a size 0.
