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.

    Thanks for the apple. I wish I actually could eat it cuz I'm hungry for fruit and apples in particular, but none are in my fridge right now, so have to wait until some of the water for the edges of Hermine drain away. Think we're done with the storm, but it's never gone until it's gone. Sky has to clear first.

    Keep going and Never Every Give up. You can fall down, but you can't just lay there and let the snails run over you. You have to get back up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.
    The Goads made a song about that fact. If you ever get a chance, try to listen to there song. It's very inspiring or motivational.

    Have a great one.
