So I get to Weight Watchers last night, and quite a few ladies are busy cutting pictures out of old Weight Watcher magazines, and sticking them on card.
I ask what are they doing? To be told we have to make an 'Inspiration Board'... to illustrate WHY we joined Weight Watchers.
So, I look around. Everyone is cutting out pictures of ... healthy food, fit looking people, nice clothes etc.
And I'm like ... in me head... thinking... NAH.
So, I do what came to mind immediately, and cut out a big gap in my card:
When our WW Leader asked us to show her our boards, I showed her mine. She was puzzled.
So I explained. My inspiration to re-join Weight Watchers was:
ABOVE: MY FAT FACE.
ABOVE: AND LET'S NOT FORGET THE BOOBS.
Cos as I explained, every time I look in the mirror, or put me bra on, I feel unhappy.
That's not my face. Those are not my boobs!
I know I can look and feel SO MUCH BETTER. I had done it before with Weight Watches, and wanted to do it again.
So... that was my 'board'. I made most of the ladies there laugh. My job is done.
Losing weight should be ENJOYABLE along the way too... and I do my best to make my time at the meetings ENJOYABLE. Otherwise, I simply wouldn't go. I go there for support, and to hopefully, support others too.
Oh and in case you missed it last night, I lost 2.1 kgs this week, and have now lost 8 kilos since starting WW again. Slow, but steadily downward.
HAPPY 6TH BIRTHDAY TO OUR GRANDDAUGHTER EMILY, we hope you have a wonderful day. If you are having a party, we would love to come!
And now... I'm off to get the washing on, and then sew.
I took myself out for a little day trip.
Once I've had a very late lunch... I will come back and show and tell. *smiles*
ARE YOU READY FOR A PHOTO FEST?...
Today I decided, spur of moment, to go to Matamata. Cos there's a nice little patchwork shop there.
It took me 35 minutes to get there, so it's not that far to go.
I first off, went to the patchwork shop:
ABOVE: Half the shop is dedicated to amazing cushions, the other half is fabric.
ABOVE: I'm going to make this panel into a set of two placemats and coasters. As a Christmas gift for someone.
ABOVE: This fabric will be really good as borders for small things.
NOW... I have to THANK Sue #2 for this! I decided to check out the local Op Shops in Matamata...
ABOVE: I ended up visiting 4 of them. *sigh*
ABOVE: Luckily, I only found two things I wanted, this bedspread (brand new!) and ...
ABOVE: This nice winter top.
AFTER the op shops, I went into a really nice looking gift shop, and found these:
ABOVE: You are supposed to hang necklaces off it? NAH. I will find something better... eventually. I just liked it, ok?
ABOVE: a gorgeous candle for my bedroom... funny, it matches me nail polish too.
ABOVE: AND finally... this funky little teapot!
I am tempted to make it a pretty skirt and not actually USE it. ha ha ha.
Bloody hell... forgot something! I went into Hamilton on my way home ... OK, I had to pass Cambridge to get to Hamilton, but so what?
I took my big Brother sewing machine into 5 Cross Roads to get serviced. It will be away *SOB* for about 2 weeks!
I bought these from there too:
ABOVE: Just two fat quarters. Very cute though.
After THAT... I actually came home. My stomach was screaming 'fed me', I hadn't had anything to eat all day!
So I had some salad and surimi.
NOW... I have about half an hour before I pick Keera up. Relax time.
After having a busy day, it's been nice to have a quiet evening.
Time for bed.
