Life is sweet, too! And ONEderful!

Hello from One-derland! I'm Alice and it has been so long since I was in One-derland that I was beginning to believe that I'd never make it back. However with perseverance and help from my Spark friends, I found myself back down the rabbit hole once again.

Hello from One-derland! I'm Alice and it has been so long since I was in One-derland that I was beginning to believe that I'd never make it back. However with perseverance and help from my Spark friends, I found myself back down the rabbit hole once again.
I've spent years chasing after the white rabbit. You know, always trying to fit in to a smaller package. I've looked for the magic cake that would make me smaller with just one bite. I kept hearing the tyrant diet queen shout, "Off with the pounds!" Life was a mad tea party where I'd get nothing accomplished...and never truly get a satisfying cup of tea!
Then I found Spark and things began to change. What a great tool it has been! I've made small changes and they've produced big changes. Slow and steady changes!
I'm content with my progress because I've taken some sound advice from my Spark Friends (and the occasional caterpillar). I've asked myself some hard questions. "Who are you?" "Where do you want to be?" "Are you willing to do what it takes to be a beautiful butterfly?"
Absolutely! It's good to be back in One-derland. I still have work to do but won't it he fun? Now, where did I put that flamingo?

My Goals:
Once again, I'm working on loosing another 10% of my weight. This goal works for me. Why mess with a good thing?

My Program:
I found that my weight loss efforts have been a journey that is "my own invention". Which makes me Queen Alice...queen of my own life and expectations which have become more forgiving these past few years. Moderation and acceptance are the corner stones of my program.

Other Information:
My Motto is:
Dreams become reality one choice at at time.

And these quotes keep me focused:

Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful-Annette Funicello

She believed she could, so she did-Suzanne Berry

You're never too old to do goofy stuff-Ward Cleaver

"Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step." ~ Naeem Callaway

Progress is progress, and all is good as long as it's forward movement. It doesn't have to be "physical movement", because it can also include all the positive choices we make in our day, and that's definitely a step in the right direction. So don't get discouraged - just keep choosing what you think is right for you - right in this moment.

In keeping with the theme of this week’s Friday Happy Hour blog:

Finally, the woman saw someone, who was loaded with packages, heading for a car. She patiently followed him, put on her blinker and waited patiently until he pulled out. Just as he pulled out a young man in a sleek black Porsche zipped in to the space ahead of her. She was dumbfounded and outraged.

Then the women jumped out of her car shouting, "How could you do that? Didn't you see me waiting there with my signal on?"
He replied, "That's what happens when you're young and fast."

As the young man was about to enter the store he heard the hideous crunch of metal striking metal. He ran back, horrified, to see that the woman had gunned her Mercedes and smashed it right into his beautiful black Porsche.

He ran back and cried, Oh my God! How could you do that?"
She smiled and said, "That's what happens when you're old and rich!"

Moral of the story: Old age and treachery will always beat youth and exuberance.

Enjoy your weekend!

"Remember how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be." ~ Rick Warren

Remember, every journey begins, progresses, and ends - one. step. at. a. time.
