YIPEEEEE, I'm a 10

Ten pounds lost that is!!! The scale gods have smiled on me once again and I am down two more pounds! How did everyone else do?

And, before I end this post, can I just say thanks for all the kind words and encouragement last week. I did not eat even one little Donette, but I was very tempted!! Enjoy this little card, if I could, I would make one for each of you for all your support!

I always call my little girls "doll face" and so this "You're a doll card" is perfect for them. The doll is from Jack's World Blackboard shapes and I just covered it with the matching adhesive diecuts. The title is made with our Scripty Rub-ons. I hung the doll on ribbon long enough to be a young girl's necklace and just threaded it through slits on the card. This is the first version, in subsequent versions, I run the ribbon through both sides of the card and tie it closed.

Adorable card! Nothing lost this week...but nothing gained, either.

Alexandra said...

Congrats! A very beautiful card!

Congrats on being a "10"...you and Bo Dereck! I wish I could say I'm doing that good~NOT! I realized a little problem I was having with "Weigh in Wednesday"... I wasn't weighing in, but just saying "I will eat better and walk evey day for exercise". Lame. Today I actually WEGHED IN~like, on a scale that I hid in the bathroom, because I detest the thing. It is far too based in reality for my liking, so I have been avoiding it. For a good reason. I almost had a heart attack when I saw the number~scared the "shoot" out of me! Anyway, I am writing that number down in an envelope inside my Food Journal for a reality check and something to compare my efforts to besides "feeling better" and "my pants arn't so tight"...(my usual Health Plan Indicators). This is for REAL! I want to be a "Dollface", not a "Do-nut Face"!

Congrats on your loss!! That's awesome! :) I'm not getting on a scale this week...I just know it wouldn't be pretty. So....I'm going to skip this week and stay on track for next week. :)

Tami Mayberry said...

That's awesome Julie!! Way to go!!!

Nicole said...

Congrats on your loss!! I, too had another good week and am down another 2.6 boxes. I started walking in the morning with a group, very different for me, but fun and a change in routine is always good!!
I'll be on vacation through the next two weigh-ins so I wish everyone a healthy couple of weeks!

Davinie said...

Congratulations on 10! Such a cute little doll face too.

ScrapMomOf2 said...

WOOHOO! That's awesome! Ten pounds is VERY impressive! When you said you were a 10, I pictured Bo Derek in that cornrow hairdo running on the beach. It's true.

I love the card. Any little girl would be THRILLED to get that!

Notice I'm avoiding the "how did you do" question. Enough said.

schmidthouse said...

I have to say I totally thought your donette video was hilarious!!! I want to work at Cosmo Cricket...if you ever need to open anything in Canada let me know...I'm your girl...and speaking of girl...that dollface card/necklace would be perfect for my niece....once again I would be the world's best aunt. Congrats on your weight loss. Maybe your luck will encourage me to do something about that myself.

FruMaansen said...

Cute card!

I've gained the pound I lost last week, so my doctor is very happy with me :-)
We are going to get an ultrasound today, hopefully the baby is feeling as good as I am :-)

Tami said...

Yea for you! haven't weighed in yet, but hoping for the best!!

Houston said...

Congratulations Julie! I am just starting down the road to weight loss (again) and i am very inspired by your blog!

NanaBeth said...

Way to go-sometimes you just got to love those scale gods.

scandi said...

Congrats on the 10!!

I lost 4 this week! Back on track... also, just a note- the more you don't eat chocolate and junk food, the less you crave it! YEY!

mel said...

congrats and really cute card.tfs

Lulu said...

Down 1.6 lbs! Yay! :) But I ate a huge piece of chocolate cake yesterday... ugh. It's birthday season in our family, and I just can't stay away.... sigh.

Lulu said...

Ack, sorry... CONGRATULATIONS!!! 10lbs is awsome!!! :)

Holly said...

congratulations!! If you ever feel down about yourself, just go to the grocery store and pick up two five-pound bags of flour. Great reminder of how far you've come!

Beverley Todd said...

Congrats Julie!! I had lost 10 pounds too ... but then in the middle I put some back. I'm now on the way down again - another pound this week.
Wasn't eating more than usual that did it ... but less gardening, so for me it certainly seems that exercise is the big thing to keep the scales moving in the right way.
Well done to everyone for sticking with it ... whether the scales moved this week or not!

Michelle said...

Congrats!!! Well, I had 2 pieces of my birthday cake which caused me to gain 2lbs. I've lost a half pound of that so far. Oh well...next week is a new week!!

julieann said...

Congrats on the 10!!!! I have recently started reading your blog and after reading several older posts I was excited to find that not only do we share a name but I have been weighing in on Wednesday since May at my local Weight Watchers!! As of Wednseday September 10 I have lost 50lbs:) Good luck on your weight loss, I will be back on Wednesdays to cheer you on!!!
