Well, I haven't been around here much lately other than to occasionally read other's blogs. I have been doing some quilting, I made a baby quilt for a friend and I am in the process of making one for our church group "Squares of Hope" to be donated to someone who needs comfort from illness or loss of a loved one.

I haven't lost a good deal of weight. In fact I was not really giving Weight Watchers my all. It wasn't until a friend said to me the other day " You aren't following the program or you would be losing weight. Are you drinking all the water you should be? " That was the best thing she could have said to me. Because she was right, I was only fooling myself. I kept saying I am following the program and not losing weight but I really wasn't being quite honest about what I was doing. I would be good for one or two meals a day but the dinner meal or between lunch and dinner I was eating more than I should have so I was basically maintaining my weight. When she said that to me I looked inside and had to be honest with myself. I wasn't doing the right thing. I was only hurting and fooling myself. From that moment on I have faithfully written down every morsel of food I've eaten and I've been drinking the water that I should be. The good thing is I was already doing the exercise I should have been. I expect to be showing some pounds drop now.

Have any of you heard of Pinterest? It's a new site where you have numerous boards and you pin different things that you like in different catagories that you choose. You follow other people and they can follow you if they want and you see new items to pin yourself all day long. Some of the things people are pinning are recipes, household hints, clothing, homes, decorating ideas, inspirational things. It's lots of fun and quite addicting I think. Go to and check it out if you want.

Today was a lazy day for me. I slept in this morning until about 8:30 (I am usually up much earlier) and I didn't get showered and dressed until around one in the afternoon. I am usually out to the gym early Monday thru Friday and Sunday it's early to church. So Saturday is the only day I can just take my time in getting anything done. It sure felt good today. Hope you all have a good weekend.
