hi everyone, happy Tuesday Wednesday :D
Today I'm here to share a quick post I did for Pink Paislee.
This week we are "scrapping on the diagonal" and each day you'll
see inspiring, beautiful projects with something diagonal as the emphasis.
I hope you check it out the entire week & you love all you see like I do!
My project today is about me.
I rarely scrap about myself. I know, that is AWFUL to say...but it's true.
It's just I don't like anyone to ever think I'm self indulgent, because if you know me,
you know it's not me, nor my nature.
However, with this layout, I pour my entire heart into the soft, simple, yet
(to me) powerful journaling.
See - as most of you know (if you read here) I'm changing my life by
going back to Weight Watchers. I've been going for a while now and
am LOVING it. I'll even go as far to list my stats - but after I show you my
you can see how I made my layout & everything I used (well it's obvious
that Color Wash is my MAIN aspect of this entire page. I can't get ENOUGH
of it. It's so beautiful!!)
here's some closer shots.
now here's my stats:
as of February 1st when I started I've:
gone down 4 pant sizes, 3 shirt sizes and even 2 bra sizes (TMI TMI).
I've lost over 10 inches on my upper body, 14 on my lower.
I've lost a shoe size. WEIRD.
I have to cinch my watches 2 holes down.
I have to actually use the drawstring on my favorite yoga and work out pants.
I can sit comfortably in a movie chair without feeling like I'm lying down. LOL!
I can do jumping jacks again.
I can run again.
I can lay on my stomach in bed again.
I can bend over and tie my shoes without my gut being squished inside itself.
I don't need my inhaler before I work out (walk/jog)
I can walk 3 miles again no prob.
I'm even doing the turkey trot with my family this Thanksgiving!
I haven't tried push ups yet - but I've never been able to do anything other than "girl" ones.
the WW scale says I've lost over 37 lbs.
At first I was thinking...only 37?? But my image shows so much more!
Then my leader pulls me aside and tells me a loss is a loss and I didn't
"just lose 30 +" pounds, I ABSOLUTELY LOST 37 lbs and I should NOT
even think about being hard on myself, but to be giving myself a high five, no
high 10. LOL! Soooo, I've realized that my accomplishment is a great accomplishment
and while I still have more to go, I'll get there & before I know it - I'll be
a brand new me. I'm well on my way.
I haven't seen some friends in a few months. I saw them not too long ago
& I can't even believe how sweet they were about my loss. I guess I don't see it
as most people - I mean I see a big loss, yes...but not a HUGE loss like others do?
I'm odd...I know.No, not odd...just hard on myself. This is a journey. One that I
love being on and one I can't wait to see the end of. Soon my friends, soon!
Enough of me...you go out and have a wonderful day.
I'm going to go sit at my favorite coffee shop & enjoy a 4 pt. latte, great company
(my cute husband) and a funny book I'm reading.
