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.

    emoticon “Forget the Easter bunny. I need one that can do me some good – like the Energizer bunny.” ~ Melanie White

    emoticon Why was the Easter Bunny so upset?
    He was having a bad hare day.

    emoticon Easter tastes better than Halloween, and you don't have to ring a lot of doorbells.

    emoticon I’m all for Easter seals – as long as they don’t bark and beg for fish. ~ Melanie White

    emoticon Easter is the only time of year when it’s safe to put all your eggs in one basket. If they’re chocolate eggs or Cadbury Crème Eggs, put them in mine.

    Happy Easter! emoticon

    emoticon An authentic and genuine life grows like a sturdy tree. And like a tree, it grows slowly.
    emoticon Every time you make a different and better decision, it grows a little.
    emoticon Every time you choose to do the right thing, even when nobody would find out otherwise, it grows a little.
    emoticon Every time you act with compassion, relinquish your right to strike back, take a courageous stand, admit fault or accept responsibility, it grows a little.
    ~ Steve Goodier
    How will you choose to grow today? Have a great day!

    I know it's Monday . . . Smile When You Wake Up . . .

    I went to bed last night, and lost an hour while I slept.
    If only losing weight was that easy!

    When you climb in bed tonight, realize that your Monday morning will be happening sooner than you expect it!

    One positive thought in the morning can change the whole course of your day!
