Blogger Butt - the ups and downs.

I didn't post last week because I was thoroughly unimpressed with my weight gain.  Now I KNEW I would gain on my week away with hubby the other week, but to gain AGAIN the week after.  I just wasn't in the mood to disclose my gain.  But I am back again this week, and thankfully with a loss.  On week one, I weighed in at 129.9kg.  Now, at week ten, I'm at 124.4kg.  It's nothing mind blowing.  It's only 5.5kg.  But I prefer it that way.  I want this to be a slow and steady race.  I want to get it right, and make life long changes, and actually learn how to eat a balanced diet.  

Like most of you (I'm sure), I have received ALOT of slack for my methods.  For some reason Weight Watcher's is foreign and strange.  Some people like to tell me I'll never lose weight if I eat chocolate a few times a week.  I'll never lose weight by eating some potato chips every so often.  I'll never lose weight if I decide I want a glass of juice.  Well I'm afraid that I am proving you all wrong!  There are only a few freaky people out there that NEVER eat junk food.  Cause let's face it, they're freaky.  The rest of us are normal, and we love an occasional chocolate, or a meat pie, or a burger, or something that just tickles your fancy.  So guess what people, Weight Watchers is actually awesome.  SO THERE!

But I will admit, I want to be able to SEE the weight loss already.  It's getting a bit boring losing weight and not seeing the difference.  I know, whine whine.  Give it time.

And I want to share my new FAVOURITE snack. 

Sorry about the bad picture, I took it on my phone at work in my lunch break.
$0.80 from Coles, in the Health Food section.  Only 2 1/2 points on the old WW point system.  Some may think that's alot of points for a snack, but it is really filling, so it's the kind of snack you have when you're really hungry.  I love them.  I buy a handful every week.  LOVE THEM.  You should try them!!

Anyway, that's my update.  I have an extremely sore jaw today, from my dental visit yesterday.  I had minimal pain yesterday with my visit, but it came back to bite me today.  Having trouble eating and talking.  Just feeling awful actually.  And to be honest, my jaw started hurting the worst after eating my Sesame Bar this morning DANG IT!!!  Darn chewy bar.  Pain killers have thus far done NOTHING to help relieve pain for me.  Anyway, I'll stop cause I'm whining, again.

I'll do my best to be more consistent in checking in!  Anyone know where I can link in?  My head hurts and I can't figure it out :)

How's everyone else's week been like?

My Creative Space - tooth crackin craft

Two days ago I was eating some food..

(not bad for a first try I think)
And cracked about 1/3 of one of my teeth off.  Luckily I wasn't eating that felt food :)  I was eating a square of chocolate.  Talk about punishment for eating naughty food!!  I'm headed to the Dentist this morning, hopefully she only charges me an arm, cause I want to keep my leg.  This afternoon, there could be alot more felt involved in my plans.

Join in over at Kirsty's if you want to be part of the fun!

Wishing & wanting...

I often find myself sifting through lovely things on Madeit & Etsy.  I am picky about what I actually end up buying, but often use the things I find as inspiration.  Here's a few things that caught my eye today...

Chocolate Brownie Soap - looks good enough to eat!!

Petite Posie Headband - loving this style, works in well with alot of my clothes!

Gorgeous necklace!

Hoop Wall Hanging - I'd love a whole series of these to go on the wall going up my stairs.

Will definitely be buying this Wooden Envelope Template!!

My husby would love these cufflinks.

This gorgeous flower clip, oh wait, I made that... haha.  It's in my shop :)

Birthday surprise

It was my birthday the other week, and I got a little package in the post from V over at Flower Photography & The Clip Cafe.  Since I've been slack, I haven't shown you yet, so this is me still catching up...

Delicious fabric, embellishments, buttons, doily's & a bar of soap to make it all smell delicious!  I sure was delighted when I got it in the post.  Thanks V!  

Oh and where on earth do you get those delightful doily's from?  I want a lifetime supply of them!!!
