For my 12 week Transitions weight loss classThey will take our final weight and measurements. Also an “after” picture. We are each supposed to bring something good to eat. I am bringing my new favorite breakfast (in mini versions). I call it a “Dr. Oz Parfait”, cause I got the idea for it from his show. Side note: I am a Dr. Oz fanatic. I record his show everyday then when I have time I watch a bunch of them back to back. Okay, back to my favorite breakfast. I layer Greek yogurt (plain, 0% fat), fresh strawberries and blackberries, no fat added granola (I like to use Bob’s Red Mill Original Whole Grain Natural Granola) about a tablespoon, and top it with about a tablespoon of agave natural sweetener (low GI). YUM! I went to a party store and got some 5 oz. clear plastic cups and I’m going to make tiny individual parfaits. They should look delicious. I hope that I can actually make them look as pretty as the picture I have in my mind. If they come out nice I’ll snap a pic before I take them to the meeting. Depending on how awful the pictures of me (before and after) are, I might post them as well, maybe. So wish me luck tonight! I think I did pretty well in these past 12 weeks. I know I’m down to a size 8 jeans. I even have 2 pairs of 6’s that fit well! WOO HOO! I am only 5 feet tall… 5 feet ZERO inches, LOL! So I need to be a good size 6 or so, or else I’m a square! (As tall as I am wide!) The main thing though, is I FEEL better. I will post my results when I get them. I plan to stay on track. I’m not down to my goal yet, I don’t think. Doesn’t matter anyway, I need to eat healthy all the time, it needs to be a natural part of my life, period.
On to stitchy stuff! I worked on Curly Tailed Rosy this past week. I hadn’t touched her since Feb. She is being worked in HDF silks on 28 ct. Jobelan (white), 1 X 1. Here’s the before and after. The after pic doesn’t show the very top, it’s rolled up on the frame, I was too lazy to use the scanner and just snapped a pic while she’s on the rods.
I'm working on Moon Fantasy StoryKeep now. I'll have a pic of her soon.
Thank you for reading and keeping up with me!
