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.

Personal Information:

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

    Hi and welcome to Spark People and to the Motivation and Positive Attitude Team. I have been here for a couple of years and have had ups and downs but I am still feeling motivated to get healthier. When I joined SP I had health issues but I am now feeling much healthier. I hope that you will reach your goals and enjoy your journey. emoticon

    Thank you so much for your support on my blog...
    All of the support reminded me why I love SPARKpeople so much....

    I put my true feelings out there and now I am not so scared anymore.... I am going to have a blast teaching Zumba and I am sure my students will love to get even more fit as I do!

    We are all on this journey to health together.... Can't wait to SHAKE IT and FLAUNT IT as I SHRINK IT! LOL

    (((( Sending SKINNY Vibes! ))))
