Baby Card and Weight Loss

I'm taking a break from the Halloween cards to show you the baby card I made. It seems that I am surrounded by pregnant women. I have 3 relatives; a friend who is essentially a relative and 2 friends pregnant all due between December and April. Some of them have announced the gender and some are either going to be surprised themselves or are surprising everyone else...so I am trying to keep the cards gender neutral. No, pink really isn't really a boy color, but I figured paired with the blue, green and yellow it could work. Obviously I will be making lots of baby cards over the next several months and I want them all to be different; so here is the first one. Very simple - SU! colors = yoyo yellow, regal rose, brocade blue, green galore and very vanilla.

Now to weight loss - for the first time in the 5 weeks I have been dieting, I gained weight. Yikes! I was so discouraged, but then realized sometimes to continue losing weight, you have to gain a little...and I mean a little. I gained 0.4 pounds. I know that doesn't seem like much, but when I look at my totals it feels like alot to me. I am staying focused and I am determined to lose the weight, so I'll keep at it. I have to try harder because I realize on the WW plan which allows you 35 bonus points each week, I myself - CAN"T use those points! That is what caused me to gain and I only used 7 of those 35. What gives?

Cute card - check out Kristina's challenge this week...I bet you could use those colors in this card very easily! way to go on the weight loss! 11 pounds in 5 weeks is great! No need to worry about the little up, that's just part of life...it all equals out in the end!

like the card. I too am surrounded by pregnant women! Hopefully, you'll be another one soon too!

don't worry about the .4 - that is really nothing...could just be water or something - you are doing great!
