My SP handle comes from a character from a book written by E. Nesbit. Alice was one of the girls in the Bastable family, and while her older sister Dora was more ladylike and played at tea parties, Alice was busy getting into trouble with the boys. That's me, to a T.

Extra Special Guest Villainess was how they referred to Eartha Kitt on the credits of the old Batman show. She still is the best Catwoman, IMHO.

I am a professional musician and teacher living and working in the Spokane area. My private teaching studio is made up of violinists and violists from age 10-15, and they are some of the neatest people I know. I love my job!

My mom, my three sisters, and I are all overweight, so I guess it's a hereditary tendency. I always thought that since we were part Sicilian, we were good at surviving famines... I grew up thinking I was fat, and since I was already fat, why bother? I had weird ideas about my body image that were terribly unhealthy. Now I think differently about things, and have a healthier perspective, so it's time to make changes.

Three years ago, I lived a half-block away from the university gym, and all my friends hung out there, so going to the gym was great! I'd spend hours there, and went from a size 24 to a size 18 in 4 months, only dropping 16 pounds (I converted a lot of flab to muscle). Several moves and jobs later, I've put it back on, and more... This time I want to get it right, and keep going!

    Hello lady,
    Just thinking about you and hoping you have a wonderful day. Stay on track and do the best you can just for today. You're doing a great job. I think both of us are going to make it this time.

    I have had others (((( Sending SKINNY Vibes! )))) to me.
    I decided to pass them on, hoping they will create a cool summer breeze.
    Keep up the good work! emoticon

    Thank you for the day at the spa. I'm so glad I've found your page. I'll be watching you and rooting for you. I've got to help keep you on track so I can follow in your foot steps.

    I'm a bit surprised that I'm doing this. Like you, I've found something that is working for me. And I want to make it so bad this time. Being on the Slow Loser team has helped me accept my slow progress better and see some of the other benefits of living a healthy lifestyle then just the numbers on the scale.

    Keep up your fire and passion and stop by my page once in a while to say hi.
