Bead Journal Challenge 3 - February

This is my latest bead journal piece I've been working on. February was when I did some beginners classes in Tribal Bellydancing. I'm just about finished with all the beading, so will be able to show a photo soon of the finished piece.

I don't know where July went. I've been busy lately. I always seem to be saying that, but time just seems to fly. During July the job I've been doing on a casual basis for the last 4 1/2 years was advertised as a permanent position. I applied for it and luckily got the job.

Also I've started a 10 week challenge at my local gym. We do 3 group personal training sessions a week and then fit in exercise classes and gym workouts when we can. I'm basing my diet on the Weight Watchers points program. I've been overweight for 8 years now and during that time have been on different diets and my weight has gone up and down. I'm determined this time to lose the weight and get back to the weight that I'm comfortable at. It will be good to be a size 8 or 10 again.

I just have to stay focussed and keep exercising. I find that if I exercise alot I want to eat properly. I also like the Weight Watchers points eating plan as it so flexible and you can have a few treats here and there if you want to so you don't feel like your depriving yourself.

Have any of you been on the Weight Watchers diet? Does anyone have any tips for me, for losing weight and keeping it off?

Anyway, back to the beading. I'll try to focus on getting it finished over the next few days.
