My Journey to Weight Loss with Weight Watchers..

About two months ago, I started Weight Watchers. I was to the point where I wanted to do several things: feel better, get pressure off my joints, and have my clothing fit better. I was almost a size 30/32, and a size 28 on bottom. I had topped out at my highest weight ever- 338 pounds. The first week on Weight Watchers, I lost 7 pounds. I quit drinking regular sodas and started drinking water and one diet soda a day. I have just finished my second month in Weight Watchers and I have lost 28 pounds! I have just done this by eiting my food, and eating snacks during the day with healthier meal options. Given all my health problems, I don't exercise a lot. I am going to try to change that. I found out last week that if my doctor writes me a "prescription" that I can use my flex card at the gym for the payments. As soon as I get all my gear together, I intend to start at Bradley Wellness Center here in Dalton. They have a pool, steam room, workout area, classes, and indoor walking area. I get a discount from work. My first goal was 25 pounds, which I met, and my next goal is 40 (total) pounds. My long-term goal is to be either a size 18 or 16, depending on how I feel once I make it to an 18, which I fully intend to do. I have not been a size 18 since Junior High! Anyway, I just want to say that if I can do this, then anyone can! I don't mind being plus sized. The only thing that really bothered me a lot was my chin(s). I don't dislike myself, but I really want to feel better. I already do. And admittedly, I want to look like a curvy goddess. :) Wish me luck!!!

This was before I started the diet. Look at that chin! lol

The bag is just about perfect.. It's pretty to look at and very soft. It feels like lambskin leather. It's a decent size for an evening bag also, large enough for essentials and small enough not to be in the way.. My one gripe is that the straps, being chain, are very heavy. I think this is because it's a double chain, not just a single one. I think that if it were a single chain it would have been perfect.

Modern Furniture..

What do you think? Do you like modern furniture? I am generally attracted to vintage-inspired furniture or things with a rounded shape.. I like circles :) But I ran across this chair at and I am loving it.

While it's not traditionally vintage-inspired, it DOES remind me of the old slipper chairs. I LOVE those.. Normally I like a chair with arms also, but these are wide seated and usually just downright comfy.. Also, I find them good when you have a room full of people. You can turn to whichever side you want to have a conversation without an arm in the way to keep you from turning. And the modern, bright pattern is fresh for a room that's mostly sort of "old fashioned".

I've been thinking about chairs for a while now. When I get moved I want to get a couple new ones. These will definitely stay in my mind.

Dear Followers, don't leave me yet..

Hey there everyone.. I know I have been idle for quite some time on the home decor front. My house is no longer a happy place to create and decorate since my landlord won't do anything to repair her properly. I am just waiting to find a job to see where I need to move.. This is why I havent created anything new for my house.

I have been on a jewelry-making kick lately.. I will post about that here too (and on my other blog). It may not interest you as much, and for that I apologize. I am just at a point where I actually get to wear more things now. Before at my job I had a uniform-it was horrid. We also could not wear any jewelry at all. Now, even though I'm working for free til I find an actual job, I get to dress up every day.. It's started my jewelry making juices to flowing.

Also, right now I have a concussion. My hatchback lid on my car didnt click up so it fell down right on top of my head. Dizziness, disorientation, and lots of aching have ensued. Just what a girl needs right? But hopefully it will be better soon. Also hopefully I will get moved soon and get back to what I love.. Just please bear with me :)
