Here's what the Parfaits looked like.
I think they were a hit! Most of the ladies asked me to email out the recipe.

I had a nice time. We all got our Dimplomas for graduating the class. I was voted 'Best Transformation' and got a certificate for that. I was very surprised. It was fun. One lady made a pasta salad with fresh red & green peppers and Dream Fields Farms Pasta. Very low GI and only 5g of digestable carbs per serving. It's very good and you can't even tell it's not 'regular' pasta! I have to get the recipe for the dressing she used in it. Lots of fruit and veggies.

Now on to the results! I don't have my mesurements yet. They will email them along with our before and after pictures, soon. Most of my measurements didn't move that much, some not at all. But I know it tapers off, plus I have to get back to spin classes, I'll get come back to that. So DRUMROLL.....
My total weight loss after 11 weeks was 18 pounds!!!! WOO HOO!!!!! That's the most I've lost in years!!!

I have my next appointment for my back on the 21st. I have already decided that even if he tells me again that I can't go back to class, I'm still going back starting in Jan. I will just not do any bending or anything that will cause my back harm. If I can't do 3rd position on the bike then I can do 2nd position. I'll do the weight training parts, and all that. I just won't do anything that calls for bending. So when the Jan. schedule comes out, I'll be on it! There you have it.

Thank you for following me and commenting! Anna asked about Rosy in silks. I did the conversion myself. Vikki has a good conversion tool on her site Floss Converter. I just typed in the DMC number and it tells you the corresponding silk number. It took a long time to do it for Rosy since there are so many colors, but I was determined to stitch her in silk, so I did it. Another thing about Rosy, I am stitching her along with her 3 counterparts all on one piece of fabric. I blogged about it way back when, when I first started her. See this post New Start SAL - HAED and this post Silks! if you're interested.
