Refreshed and Ready to Go!
Well I'm getting very excited about this journey that's going to take place. In church yesterday, the pastor was talking about the significance of "40" in the bible, and, long story short, he was applying it to things that have happened for tha... Read more
Well, at the risk of offending anyone who's not the "religious type," I'd like to share something I heard at church today. It was God and faith-oriented, of course, but it was a great message even for those who are not necessarily "church goers... Read more
How Easily We Veer Off Track
I am quite disappointed in myself at how easily I let my emotions change my course of action. I was lucky enough to lose the 2 pounds of water weight that I gained last week, and I am determined to lose more this week, as I'm trying to reach a ... Read more
Was feeling good, but.....
I tried adding a new blog entry twice last night, and for some reason, it wasn't going through, and I lost it both times. I was excited to share my news about how I looked in my bathing suit this year. For the first time in a very long time, I ... Read more
New Year, New Alicia
Well, the new year is here, and thanks to my success this far, and all my faithful supporters, I think this will be the year that I finally achieve success.
Even though I haven't reached my goal weight yet, I already feel like a new person,... Read more
Well, November is here, and I will be turning yet another year older. As if that wasn't bad enough in itself, it's the day before Thanksgiving, so I'll have all the opportunity in the world to eat my depression away!
I've had a horrible we... Read more
My Time Capsule
1. Draw a picture of yourself (for those sharing in your blog, obviously you can't draw your picture, so draw us a verbal picture of yourself).
I LOOK LIKE A STUBBY, FAT PUMPKIN WITH PUDGY ARMS AND LEGS THAT STICK OUT- COMPLETE WITH MY "BINGO ... Read more
The "Personal Matter Chatter" Team!
Hey girls! I just started a new team for those of us who are a bit "less shy" than others. I'm hoping it will be a comforting place to talk about all our issues from relationships, to child rearing, to health, to emotional and everything in be... Read more
Oh my gosh! I really did it! I was at Wal-Mart last night, and saw these jeans that were tailored to make you look thinner. I wanted to try a pair on, but because I'm so short, I needed petites. Well, of course they didn't have petites in my... Read more
OMG- BAD DAY!
Wow did I have a bad day today. And only two days before my next weigh-in! And the worst part? I was totally conscious of what I was doing! This morning I had pancakes and bacon, okay, not so bad if you control yourself, right? I DON'T EVEN... Read more
The Biggest Loser Show- Why?
The Biggest Loser Season 4 started tonight, and that show motivates me so much. I even thought about going there, but I wouldn't want the world to see this body in spandex! LOL. But seriously, if those people, most weighing even more than me, ... Read more
On the Road Again....
Well, it's been quite a while since I was here, I'll admit it. I "fell off the wagon" several months ago, and I just couldn't get myself back on it! Then, this morning, I had so much joint pain in my knees, I could barely function to get ready... Read more
Did Good Until the Milkshake
Wow! I thought I had a great day, because all I had all day was oatmeal and toast, and a 100-calorie granola bar. I got chicken for dinner, and since I had such a good day, splurged on a small milkshake.
Now, I get my chicken (and milksha... Read more
2 More Pounds and Thrilled to Death!
Well what a surprise when I got on that scale this week. I was expecting to have gained at least a pound, (not only has my internet service not been working, so I couldn't check in at SP everyday, but it is also that time of month for me.) Lo ... Read more
Back to the Fast Break Stage
Well, I decided to go back and start again. I was so excited to join SP, that I sort of jumped right in and rushed through a few steps. I really want this to be a permanent lifestyle change, and the only way I can do that is to follow the step... Read more
