My name is Sian, I'm 27 years old, I live in Amesbury, Wiltshire with my hubby Mark and 2 boys Andrew-5 and Anthony-3. I have decided to create a blog to do with my card making,general life and my weight loss journey. I suffer with serve depression and serve chronic back pain, I started making cards in October 2010 as a hobby to help my depression, i started making so many i didn't know what to do with them so a friend suggested that i sell them. At first i wasn't sure they were good enough but she made me realise they were. I have been trying to improve my skills ever since then and love making them.
My Weight Loss Journey - The start
I decided on 5-1-12 to take the big step I've been thinking about for a while and to join weight watchers.It took lots of guts to get on the scales for the 1st time at the meeting and i have to admit i did have a little cry when i got home, i was not expecting the scales to read 15st 2.5lbs as i thought i was 14st. I've been doing ww for 1 1/2 weeks now and on 12-1-12 i had my 1st weigh in, i was crapping myself as i was dreading not losing any weight but i was so pleased when i was told i had lost 3lb. I am half way through week 2 and i have been very good making a note of everything I've eaten. It is weigh in day on Thursday so here is hoping I've lost this week.
My cardsI had a little break over xmas and the new year from making cards so last week i decided to try and get my mojo back. I have made a few this week so will add them below, will try and add what i used if i can remember as some bits I have been given so don't know the names of.
