have i told you??

I just got my pink paislee stamps yesterday....the alphabet..is so cute!! So expect to them way too..much on the next couple layouts!! I am going croppin' tonight over at jeniece's tonight...while the kids are playin' ...and I would love to get a layout done that I loved....I did this one last night...and I love it...but it might be because it has my 3 favorite people in the picture...and my new favorite product!!??
I also did something on wednesday that I have been thinking of doing for a few weeks...and I wasn't sure if I was going to post about it.....but then I got busted!! hee...hee...I joined weight watchers this is my first time..and I am really excited...since Ed died...the idea of living a longer life...without him in it...just didn't sound like a good thing....but I keep looking at these girls...and thinking I have to give it a shot!! so wish me luck....It was so funny....I sneak into WW step my rear end up on that scale...and all of sudden behind me I hear "staci?"....oh lord !! behind me stood a fellow scrapper!! that I've met at Scrappy Chic..and online!! I mean what are the chances..!! But I am going to take it as a sign...that I was supposed to be there...and there was something comforting knowing someone there.....and I hope to see her next wednesday...at my first official weigh in!! I plan on using her for support....I was so excited that at the meeting there was one guy that had lost 200lbs..and a lady that lost 160lbs!! What?? I didn't think this was possible without surgery anymore!! and I have nothing against the surgery...Ed did it...and he would've never changed a thing...but I always felt that it wasn't for me.....my biggest fear is the weeks that I don't do good or I have a gain!! and that's when I don't want to just give up....which is what I do...!! But what I like about this plan..is that I can still run to mcdonalds....and eat regular food...as long as I keep it in my points area....so I don't feel like I have to eat salad...a celery sticks everyday....cause next weekend I am going to a weekend crop...at miki's and she always has yummy food!! so that will be my next challenge!!

Ooh I'm loving that alphabet!! And congrats on joining WW, making that first step must have been hard! I'm not on WW, but I struggle every day to make good choices, so I'm here for you if you need some support.

I love your new Alpha... It's so cute... The paper was cute also.

I know you can do it... Trust me I know just as much as anyone how hard it is...

I've been on WW a few times.. But when I really stayed focused and did what I need to it worked...

Good Luck...

Way to go Staci! Good luck hun, I think you'll find it's quite easy if you're motivated. I've lost 49lb since Dec last year but for the last month I've been sitting in the same place more or less. I'm a bit bored with it all. Maybe you joining will help me get motivated to get back on track too :)

Love the LO as well, you're the best!

I'm so proud of you for joining WW. You'll do great! I've done the program and still follow it today as a lifetime member. My leader lost 108 pounds and was truly inspirational!

You can do it! I think what helped me when I did WW was having to weigh in every week and knowing that I was paying for it.
I am also trying to lose weight so, the food will be yummy, but in a healthy kind of way.
See ya Friday!

Love the layout Staci and congrats on joining WW. It's a wonderful program. :)

Beautiful layout and I'm so glad you found a fellow scrapper at weight watchers to cheer you on in person! We'll be cheering you on from the sidelines!

Leah C said...

WOOHOO Staci - you rock darlin. I know it's hard, but just losing 12 lbs in 7 weeks makes me feel better about myself. I will be cheering you on!!

Wendy said...

I do weight watchers and have lost lots of weight in the last few months.Gosh if i can do it anyone can. Keep motivated and go to the meetings and you will watch the weight drop off! good luck!

Jenny said...

Staci! I LOVE how your motivation for WW is to live longer! Being an older parent of young children, I totally feel that way, too. I want to always be able to keep up with my boys (and dog LOL). You're going to do great, and don't worry, everyone has off days when working toward a weight loss goal. You can do it, sister!

I lost 25 lbs with that last year. Just remember, if you screw up, start again with the next meal. Don't feel like you've blown the whole week just because you screw up once. That used to mess me up all the time. I will call you up and we'll go to farmers markets or something. If you have melon all cut up, ready to go, it looks really yummy and tastes great! And...last thought...if you really love Diet Coke don't try to give it up too. You gotta' have something you love!
