Good news...bad news...

Two items of bad news and a note of good news.

The first bad news: nothing new to show you on the scrap side of things, sorry. I'm so bummed I can't seem to find any mojo...or time to conger some mojo. I figure late March or April I may find some time...here's hoping!!!

BUT, good news: my wellness journey continues to be a success. So far I've lost 20 pounds and 2 sizes (3 depending on the brand). YEAH! I weigh less now than I did before I got pregnant. Not quite less than before I broke my leg just before I got pregnant, but that should come in another 4-6 weeks. I'll keep you posted!

Which leads me to my next bad news: I have no pants that fit!!! I've finally convinced myself that as I put clothes on that don't fit, they immediately go into the donation pile. No saving clothes in case I need them again. So, all I have are jeans and skirts to wear...and some of the jeans have made their way into the donation pile. I bought a belt over the Christmas holidays and actually had to punch a new hole in it because it didn't fit, either. How exciting!!!

Even though I'm hopeful I'm not done losing, I decided I needed at least one pair of pants. So, this weekend I bought a pair of size 8 dress pants. Woo Hoo!!! I haven't been a size 8 since before I had Erica. Now I need to find time to hem them so I can actually wear them before they're too big (hee, hee).

I scrapped...woo hoo!!!

What a night. Kelly came over and I got to play with my scrappy stuff. I pulled out my papers and embellishments...and then went the easy route and did some digital stuff with quick pages from the Wellness Journey class. I started another scrappy class this week, so I decided to knock out the wellness things with digital templates. I'm just starting week 6, so I have two layouts that need pix (week 2 on food, and week 5 on rewards...hopefully I can get them in good light tomorrow) and one more to figure out this week. Ooooh, and the picture on the layout below is my new blog pix...woo, hoo!Now, here's hoping I can be more consistent with my scrappiness and my blog...
