Tubby Tuesday - A Day Late (Again...)

It seems to have become a habit to post this on a Wednesday! I had no WW club yesterday, what with it being the festive season, so I weighed myself on my home scales. I had weighed myself before Christmas day, so I would have something to compare my 'after Christmas' weight with. The scales told me that I had gained two pounds - which I can cope with - and I am back on track, hoping to have got that extra off by this time next week.

Some Bits 'n' Bobs

These are Swarovski crystal earrings and the photo doesn't do them justice at all. They are really sparkly.

This set was made for my Mum for Christmas. Again, Swarovski crystal in with glass pearls.

No need to say any more than that! Hope all you bloggers out there have a lovely festive time and a wonderful 2010.

Keep crafting and producing the wonderful items that you all make so well. I am going to blog hop more next year and try to join in more swaps. That can be my New Year's resolution.

Tubby Tuesday - A Day Late (Again...)

I lost 2.5lbs again, taking me up to a total of 32.5lbs. I was really pleased as I went to my husband's work party on Friday and had no control over the food.

Tubby Tuesday and More Bling

Weight loss this week = 2.5lbs. Thank goodness. You have no idea how hard it was for me to stay on track all last week. I have a Christmas do to go to and wanted to be in a positive frame of mind for that. At least I know that my dress fits and I will look passable! This ring is to go with the outfit. It is incredibly 'bling' but all my outfit is the obligatory black, so I want something to sparkle. I am making some earrings too - not too much but a couple of sparkly accents.

Swarovski 'Bling Rings'

Aren't they gorgeous! And to think that a few months ago I didn't like anything sparkly (unless the real McCoy!) These are from a book I bought in a cheap shop. I have recently been having a Swarovski spending spree and decided to dig the book out.

Tubby Tuesday - A Day Late!

I am so gutted. I gained half a pound. You know when it happens and you know why? Well, in my case, there was NO REASON for it. Honestly guv...

I actually stood on the scales and shouted, 'Nooooooooo' when she told me the news. Then I stood there, adamant that it could not be right as I had done nothing different from any other week. Apparently it could be water retention...hmmm.

Anyway, if I don't lose this week I will be ready to give up I think, and I really don't want to do that. My body seems to be losing weight every two weeks at the moment, which is ok, but it is really disheartening not to see results every week when you have been careful. Mind you, I have lost exactly 7lbs in the last 4 weeks, so I suppose I shouldn't complain.

Craft Sale At Local School

I would like to thank my friend Jane for inviting me to sell my jewellery at her children's school fayre last week. I managed to sell quite a lot of my work and had a lovely time. I would also like to thank my mum, who suggested that I make several pairs of cheaper ear-rings to sell to the littlies who needed presents for their mums. They all sold! We wrapped every thing in tissue paper and they all looked really lovely wrapped up. I also used the jewellery stands made from a pattern at Boo's Jewellery Blog.

The only downside was that I was next to the cake stall and all the cakes were calling to me. I think it was the closest I have been, so far, to falling off the diet wagon. There was this chocolate cake for sale in slices and...well, say no more. I didn't succomb though and managed to stick to my points - phew!

Tubby Tuesday - A Day Late!

I forgot to post yesterday and tell whoever reads this that I lost 4 lbs this week, and hit my 2 stone!!! Still a long way to go but it is in the right direction...

Oh, AND, I got in my size 14 jeans last night too!
