Success to report

I promise this will not be a weekly thing - I won't be doing this every week. Just this time, for self motivation if nothing else.

After one week on WW I've lost 2.5 pounds. And I was able to eat cake and ice cream at Chelsea's early birthday celebration yesterday because I'd saved enough points. I'm keeping the picture in my mind of myself wearing the new clothes in the closet that I can't wear now. I'm so looking forward to that.

I've put a progress line on my sidebar - again to motivate myself. If it motivates anyone else that's great also.

I didn't get to sew at all this weekend. I hope to remedy that tonight. If nothing else I need to make a block for our guild president because I'm due to present the blocks to her at installation this Thursday.

Congratulations on your weight loss (oh that cake and ice cream sounds good); WW is working for me and what a relief it is to be losing weight.
