Monday was weigh in day. I am happy, I am sitting on 95kg which actually puts me 1kg in front of my goal. Saw the gastric specialist again and he is very pleased with how things are progressing. I had another fill of the band and I don't go back to see him for 8 weeks.
Noticed that I could almost fit into clothes in "normal" stores. For the last 4-5 years I have been stuck with the rare store that does larger sizes so this is starting to feel good. I went into Be Me last night and found a lovely red top to wear to Oprah and for Christmas and a lovely purple top as well. The best news is that I have lost two dress sizes! Yay. Mum kept holding clothes up to me to measure and the verdict with the first few was that they were too big. Normally what I like is too small, now it is too big. :)
I am wearing the purple top today and went to put on some black pants and they nearly fell off so I had to go hunting. I am loving this, though soon I may end up wearing exercise clothes to work out of desperation for something that fits. It is hard to justify spending $50 on a top that you may only get to wear a handful of times before it is too big.
In other news I finally cleaned up my office. This is a room where everything gets dumped and I have been putting it off for (dare I say it) 3 years if not more, to go through and tidy. There was enough room on my computer desk for the mouse, keyboard and a drink. I got the tidy bug on Saturday night. Two huge garbage bags of torn up pieces of paper/cardboard boxes later and I can see the carpet. I also found all three screws that had fallen out of the chair. Yes the seat is held on by one screw so don't lean to the right or you will keep going and take the seat with you! It was decided that the carpet was probably in shock at seeing the light of day so the vacuuming will happen this weekend. :) Yes I am messy but I claim the cry of an artist!! LOL
I recently purchased some fabric mixed media art books on Amazon and I am having fun coming up with ideas to mixed with my Stampin' Up products. I have already done one thing but it is not complete yet so I won't be posting pics until it is. I am happy with how it turned out.
The photo's of the 3D swap are still coming as well.
One final thing. One of the nicest, most gorgeous, fun loving people is moving over to Perth from Queensland. I am proud to also call her my Aunt! Mum is ecstatic in the knowledge she will have a sister close again. She and her hubby will be here for Christmas as well. Christmas this year is going to be great. Last year's was horrid, but things are finally looking up for this family.
Will try and get my act together and photograph my latest creations. It's halfway through the week, have a great one!
