I love weight watchers

I have been doing weight watchers since May 26. somehow, my crappy eating habits caught up to me. I am like a magnet for weight and it only seems to get worse and speed up the older I get. I decided I had to do something. Weight watchers really isn't that hard. I still get to eat what I want, I just think about what I'm eating before I eat it and I decide if it's worth eating or not. (and trust me, many times it is more than worth it to eat whatever it is!!) along this path I have had many special days.... anniversary, birthday of my daughter, husband and mine, a trip to the cottage which is more like being at club med and the list goes on. What I'm saying is I haven't stopped living and I haven't completely denied myself anything. I am thrilled to say that it's working. I have found a new appreciation for fruits and veggies. I am excited at the prospect of having a veggie stir fry for dinner. I have also found that I love to run on the treadmill. I try to do a weight loss programme on my treadmill and do it for 2+miles every other day. I look forward to it. I even can fit it in before work some days and that means I am on the treadmill at 4:40am. I don't see going back to the old way I used to be. I know everyday I will have to be vigilant though because it's a quick and slippery slope back to being obese and tired but that's OK. nothing worth it comes without a fight and I am up for a fight because I'm worth it. If you've ever thought about doing weight watchers I highly recommend it. BTW as of this morning, I am down 26lbs and I want to go another 25.

more September Scrapping Nook DT reveals

this is more like the feel that Jillibean Soup's homemade 6 bean soup papers gave me when I first saw them. Wild to think that the wedding layout and these layouts were made with the same line of papers huh?

I still have a few ideas up my sleeve for the rest of the paper I still have from this line.... stay tuned!

September Scrapping Nook DT

it's Sept and I am working with Jillibean Soup's homemade 6 bean soup line. when you look at the papers, you certainly don't think vintage do you? well, that's what I did with this paper today. it was nice to be in the groove again and to get my fingers all inky.
