It's Official!!



I have finally passed all my assessments and am now a fully fledged Weight Watcher leader! I have been given 2 groups a week to take over and start next week. I can't wait. I did feel a bit daunted, but it's my own business to run as successfully as I want it and now I'm really excited about it. Having trodden the path myself, I just want anyone who is unhappy with their weight to come and know that there is another way, you don't have to put up with anything. I just think, if I did it, anyone can!

Rob and I had a great weekend last weekend while Lily was away. Although I love her dearly, it's nice to have some time to be 2 people again and not have any other role that that of a friend, lover and eating companion!!! And we did!! We ate out twice a day, but I still managed to stay the same on the scales this week! (Minor miracle!)

My old wedding ring, which I did love, was so big, it kept falling off since I lost weight. So Rob promised me a new one. I could have had the old one made smaller, but my fingers are so much smaller now, it would have looked too thick, so we decided to go for a completely new look one. I am now sporting the most beautiful 9 diamonds, channel set in a square cut gold band. It is so sparkly, I can't stop looking at it, it's like being newly married all over again!!!

So, my body has gone down by 3 sizes and my fingers have gone down 4 sizes. Not bad in less than a year!!!!

What with planning my assessment meetings and buying diamond rings, knitting has taken a back seat a bit. But I have started the Breezy Wrap from the RYC book I was kindly gifted recently, and also I am on my second attempt of Mystery Stole 4. I am knitting on 2 ply lace, and on row 2 there is a bead on every other of the 113 sts. Now, do you feel a little knitting pain for me????????
