my little brother and his girlfriend got engaged on the 28th
her ring has 28 beautiful diamonds
they're getting married in 28 months thats April 2010
I'm going to be a bridesmaid :D
That gives me 824 days to lose the rest of the weight i want rid off and get fit and toned. Cant gain extra height but thats what heels are for ;D
I've managed to lose half a stone since mid november so happy to keep losing at that rate. Also going swimming a couple of times a week and trying to start daily exercises and streches.
Got a book 'Fabulous in a Fortnight' from my mum for christmas that has a food separation type diet, 12 step daily exercises and tips on style and deportment. I'll pass on her diet but try and take on the rest of the ideas.

I've started my preparation for Shimelles Journal your christmas class and made my first set of decisions.
I'm want to use my journal to reclaim Christmas and my feelings for it.
I want to enjoy the whole Christmas season with its hustle and bustle but not stress about the fact we have to work all through it.
I want to work out and record what my tradtions are celebrating Christmas as a single person and as a Christian.
I will use the Green Colorbok 8x8 album I've had sitting doing nothing on my shelf for over a year.
I will do one page a day and not stress about everything being a double layout.
I will make some elements ahead of time like date tags and possibly page plans.
I will not drag out my whole craft room for every page.
I will tidy most of my stuff away so I'm ready and clear for Christmas.
I will use a variety of papers but stick mainly to traditional red and green.
I will use my own handwriting not the computer.
I will try and stick to just a couple of my Christmas stamps not everyone i've ever bought :)
I will Journal the pages as I go even if I cant complete the layout that day.
Roll on next week :D

I am a rubbish at remembering to take photos on these kinds of occasions and the ones I did take of the happy couple have come out a bit dark so I'll have to wait for the official photos to see what they really looked like.
Bloggers having probs with photos tonight so cant upload anyway :)
Juliet was gorgeous though.
The clocks went back while we were down for the wedding so summertime is over, winters on the way, the cold weather is upon us and I want to hibernate :)
failing that I'll have to try and make my evenings and days off productive and keep active so heres my winter list!
1. I will go swimming at least twice a week
2. I will do one scrapbook page a week
3. I will get back on babysteps with flylady and get my house in gear
4. I will start on my christmas cards and presents
5. I will update my blog and bebo and facebook at least once a week
6. I will keep in touch with my friends by phone text email or even a visit to the pub now and then
7. I will not seek solace in food (too much)
8 I will be more active on UKScrappers and Faithscrappers
Roll on Spring!

I weighed myself last night and I'm 13 stone!!! How did that happen???
It wouldn't be so bad if I was 6 foot tall but at 4 foot 11 thats over 2.5 stone a foot there's some bits of me that can't possibly be that heavy.
Overall, it's just not a good look.
So it's back to following the WeightWatchers points plan that has worked for me in the past.
I found my books from when I first lost weight in 2000 and at that point I managed to lose a stone in 2 months so I know it is do-able I just need to stop snacking and not visit the chippy so often :)

Its offical I have way to much stuff. Tidied my bedroom yesterday and found 2 rugs I'd forgotten about under the piles of stuff, then had to tidy the craft room when I couldnt correctly answer the question "What colour is the carpet?"
I dont think I need a stash diet anymore I need stash surgery and a storage diet :)
