A few more cards

I made these cards for a card contest at Memories from the Attic. Challenges are always good they expand your mind and artistic opportunities :D. These were done for the shape card challenge and for the vintage card challenge. I also finished a project for an upcoming event at KNK and a Halloween Layout!!!

THe doctor was pleased:D

I on the other hand HATE HATE HATE their scales :( based on my home scale I have lost 30 lbs. according to his about 23 :( that is a huge difference! but oh well.... and the other thing my blood pressure was HIGH! no way it has been running low until that day.. no clue what is up with that. maybe something I ate! but the bestest news was the cholesterol!!!!!!!!! I went from 275 (way high) to 208 almost in normal range!!!! all the other "cholesterol" numbers adjusted accordingly too!!! so another 6 months of eating good and then another blood test!!!!! Once again I am so thankful that I got another chance to eat healthy.!!!!

in the scrappy news.... don't forget to take a look at Thankful Harvest Card Kit at KNK and Creativity Boutique... I think there are still a few left.... They are not thanksgiving cards (but could be used for that) but rather Thank You cards made with the Beautiful Loverly Collection from GCD Studios!!!!

AND Watch for Some of my Sketches to be featured in the December Scrapbook Sussies KIT!

Well Today is the Day

I go back to the doctor today. It has been 4 months since I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. Today is My followup appointment. They are also checking my cholestrol which was HIGH 3 months ago..
I have made a lot of lifestyle changes since this all started!
I AM STILL CAFFIENE FREE!!!!!! an amazing feat for all who know me!!!!!!!
I have lost 30 pounds according to my scale!!!!! 30 pounds!!!! unbelieveable!!!!!
I eat much more healthier foods!!! at all meals!!!!!
I should be very proud... but mostly I am very thankful! Thankful that God gave me a chance to undo the years of my bad diet. I am completely aware that many don't get that chance. Thankful that he has helped me when I had no will power. Thankful that I have many friends (in real life and in cyber space) that have walked beside me along the way!!!!!
I hope the doctor agrres with me and that he is willing to take me off the blood pressures medications... hopeful that I am not trading it for cholestrol drugs.. but high cholestrol runs in the family so who knows. cross your fingers!
