I'm a beautiful mess!

My name is Alyssa, and I am a 32 year old mom of two and so much more. I am coming into the part of my life where I'm finally figuring things out and working on me....becoming happy from within myself and not looking for external happiness.

This is a journey that I want to take part in to finally achieve happiness. I don't believe that a certain number on the scale will provide happiness, because I lost 75 pounds a couple years ago. I believe that being healthy on every front is ...

How is your day going? What is your favorite part of the 21 day fix so far? For me it was the food planning....it was hard at first but now I find when I'm making things I will use the containers as my measuring cups. LOL

I'm glad that I found your blog today and added you as a friend. It is always great to find new friends that will share this journey with you. I am VERY determined to get this weight back off and keep it off.

There is a lot to learn and really very little at the same time. Lol. I have learned the hard way by twice weighing over 350 pounds. The first time I lost 110 pounds and then put it all back on, in a very short period of time. Four years later I tried again and lost 170 pounds and have kept it off for 3 years now. I get a little overboard at times at weight loss and nutrition because of that failure to success ratio. I am working towards reducing my body fat to 15% @ 180 pounds by January 2015. I'm currently at 189 pounds and 18% body fat. I do know it is hard to do alone and that is why I try to help others as much as I can. But I have to rein in on my enthusiasm sometimes by not bombarding people with TMI. I just started my Phase II Nutrition course studying micro nutrients and as always I share what I learn. Thanks for the Goodie emoticon

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
