damask birthday and WW...

Hi all, Happy Monday!!!
Did you watch the Superbowl??? The only part I watched was half time...and have to say I LOVE The Who!!! They were awesome!
I was busy stamping during the game...while Mike watched~perfect Sunday afternoon, IMO!!! I decided to make a few birthday cards, because they are nice to have on hand (my kids depleted my stash...that is one good thing when your mom stamps~free cards for your friends, LOL!).

I am a big fan of WW!!! I LOVE the program, seriously, best one out there IMO. Back in 2006 I joined after my friend Cindy told me about it. I have never had a weight problem (I was one of those annoying people that could eat whatever I wanted), but after some stressful situations, and Ashley moving away to college (across the US), Nestle Cookie dough was my best friend!!! I would eat it from the tube with a spoon~so delish!!! Well, long story short...I put on over 30 pounds and one day woke up and wondered "why I needed bigger pants" and "what the heck happened." I joined WW and lost over 35 pounds and reached my goal, but never made it to Lifetime member. Fast forward to 2009 after a year (2008) of planning a wedding for Ashley and Nate, working full time, Mike losing his job, and some other random stuff...I had gotten out of my WW routine. Ashley and I joined together before Thanksgiving, and I am happy to report that I made it to Lifetime member on Friday *woot*. I am glad that I finally achieved that goal~ and since this time around I only had 6-7 pounds to was a lot faster to get to my goal~I just feel like WW gave me my life back and my skinny clothes!!! I {HEART} WW!!!

Enjoy Today!!

Supplies used (PTI unless noted): Damask Designs/Paper Tray stamps; Kraft/Dark Chocolate/White cardstock; Melon Berry/Choc Chip (SU!) ink; Ripe Avocado Double Stitched Ribbon; Berry Sorbet Button; Twine; Scallop Edge/Oval Punchs (SU!)

Congratulations on becoming a LTM!!! That is an awesome achievement! I hope to join you there soon :) You would think that since I am actually a former WW's leader I would find it easier, but nope - even though I know the program inside and out I still struggle to stick to it!
Oh and I loved your card too :)

Just had to say a big "CONGRATS"...I became a lifetime member about 15 years ago, and although I stray away from the program more times than I care to think about...I still think it is the best weight loss program out there! I always go back when the extra pounds creep on again! Good job!

Great card...I stop by here and your photo blog to see what you come up with on both.

Congratulations Girl!!!!

I wish I could say I only had 6-7 lbs to lose instead of 60-70 to lose. Oh well, tomorrow is a new day:)
