corner 3
Hi Girlie pies!  I feel like Ive been out of the loop this week so far..  been busy I guess!  I have been helping my daughter get ready for the HS musical.  shes the director.  so i've been painting and helping where I can.  the musical is this weekend.  they're doing Anything Goes.  so far it looks like it will be really good.  so many talented kids in lyndonville!  Not to mention, of course that my daughter is a great music teacher! lol!

Just home from Weight watchers!  I lost 4.6 pounds this week!  for a total so far of 17.8 pounds!!  wooohoo!  so glad to start taking this weight off.   I didn't eat much this weekend as I had a little tummy trouble..   but I was hungry tonight and had bacon and eggs for dinner.  now I'm so thirsty from that bad bad bad bacon.

I will be working on a little Easter project tonight.  I have to make my swappy piece for my friend Kelly.
I have it already started and will show it to you when I finish.  
So for now.. Off I go....

Congrats on the weight loss total, Vivian! You are doing so good. I'm still at 5 pounds, which means I either haven't been very good or I have to start doing something else. I love your brown bunny in the pictures ~ he's just the kind I like.

Musings from Kim K. said...

What a champion you are with the continued weight loss. Such a good mom helping with set designs too. Can't wait to see more easter goodies. What on earth am i going to do with the lull between holidays? Easter needs to last longer.

Ps. The lamb you asked about was a plastic religious statue I prettied up with glue, glitter and flowers.

17.8 is a big deal Viv!!! That's great! That must really be showing.
I'm so proud of you. Wish I could get in gear with eating right. I'm hoping that once I move, I can make a lot of changes. I'm definetly at a stand still right now.
Thanks for the inspiration!
Erica :)

Hi Viv~
I think it's great that you're helping with your daughter's production. I love musical theatre! Congratulations on your re-commitment to WW...I'm thinking about rejoining myself. Do you like their new plan? I haven't been for years.
I am finally finished with my spoolie swap items...it was more of a challenge than I thought but I'm glad I signed up. I haven't done a swap in over a year. Felt good to make "stuff" again.

Theresa said...

Jeanne said...

Hey Weight Watcher girl! You've been doing great so far. I join just about I year ago and have lost 40 lbs. Maintaining is the hardest for me, but so far so good. The meeting I go to has a great group of supportive people, many of whom have become friends. Good luck and keep up the good work!


Congrat's on the awesome weight loss!!! You GO GIRL!!!
Sweet Easter bunny and chicks!
Happy Spring!

Cheryl said...

Hi Viv, I love your Easter photos!

Well done with the weight loss...exerciser is so important to us artists and crafters, so much we do is sitting down...inspired I'm going to put my aerobics dvd on!

Maria Elena said...

Congrats on the weight loss!!! Love, love your Spring decor!

Elizabeth Andrus said...

Hi Vivian! Oh my gosh is the velveteen rabbit ever fabulous in these photos. I'm so proud of your weight loss. Wow! I spoke with Meri today on the phone, and she is down 50 lbs!!! Just to keep you in the loop, I've roped Sandy into hosting a supply swap sometime in may. So be setting aside "the good stuff" that you have extras of. We will be decorating a cigar type of box to send things in. Can't wait! E

Abbey Crafton said...

I adore the velveteen rabbit!

Abbey Crafton said...

You are an encouragement! I had been steadily losing and eating nothing but organics (feeling great) but then my wee sister was diagnosed with cancer and, I let myself stress and ate any bit of crap I could get my paws on. Time to climb back on the wagon. Thanks for sharing ...youre an inspiration!

Nan said...

First congrats on the weight loss and then later the really hard part keeping it off.
I love that silky tall bunny you have here!!

GardenofDaisies said...

Things are looking every Eastery at your house! Good for you on the weight loss! I'm working on that, too, although not weighing, just going with how my clothes feel.

Linda said...
