On weight loss and jewelry making...

Losing weight and gaining it seems to be the purpose of my life...and the other purpose is eating. And while eating is AWESOME....I saw that I got so fat finally that everything was hurting and I was not even able to climb stairs well. I became 77 lbs overweight. My weight as per WW should be 99 lbs. And yeah...I reached an all time high of 176 lbs. So I congratulated myself on this record breaking achievement, bowed and took in all the applause the world had to offer...then decided to set another record....change my life purppose a little bit. After all I had already set the world record in eating and weight gain.

Joined online WW (no...not short for WWF...I mean Weight Watchers) last week. In my first week I lost 5 lbs, and was 171lbs. Now this second week is going good too. Today I seem to be 168lbs Will not rejoice too much till I find my final for the week on Friday.

Trying to change my focus from living to eat to eating to live ;-).

Now that you all have been blessed with all information about my weight and its changes, I'd like to write about about another interest of mine: Jewelry making. I used to bead bracelets for a long time...sold quite a few too. Then I got bored of just stringing beads. Wanted to do more, so I picked up wire working and metalsmithing. I joined a crafts center at Worcester and took 2 metalsmithing classes: Jewelry I and Jewelry II. And I LOVED it!!! There is something about changing a sheet or a piece of wire to a piece of jewelry. I have pictures here to show my progress. The first pictures are my ealiest attempts...and goes on to the latest ones I did. I don't have pictures of some of the pieces I made because I gave them away, and some I haven't photgraphed till now. Hopefully one day I'll have a smashing jewelry business!!!

Hmmm...can't figure out how to post pictures...let me figure it out.
