Still losing "after-baby" weight!

Hello, and welcome!

I think I'm in trouble.........I'm still struggling to lose the weight I gained when I was expecting my last quite a bit extra that just hopped on for the ride :(

Er.....did I mention that my last baby is now 22 years old? 
I try, I really do, and most weeks I lose a pound or two.....I'm doing Weightwatchers (again!)......but, some days I am just soooooooooo fed-up of having to be totally aware of everything I put into my mouth.........and then.......I lose it!!!
Put a pound back on, when I got weighed last night.......ggrrrrrrrr..........but back on track, now, and having delicious home-made spicy tomato and butternut soup, with crusty bread, for dinner.........mmmmmmmm!

Well, all that talk of deliciousness (is that a real word?) must have influenced this card, because I went for the blue and CHOCOLATE colour combo, again, lol!
This was made for my middle daughter's birthday, next week.
Her baby girl, Yvie-Grace, has just turned 10 months,(fourth child) and Gillian (middle daughter) has done soooooo well, getting back into shape......she works out, at the gym, regularly.....and the results are fabulous......Go Gillian!!!

The papers are from NitWits (free with Simply Cards & Papercrafts) and I love 'em...must buy some more....and the very flexible young lady is another free digi, but can't remember where I snagged her.....I HAVE started to record where I get 'em from ...honestly :) The image and sentiments are coloured with my funky Promarkers (bet y'didn't guess, lol).

I think the sentiment will make her smile in agreement.......don't you?

The sparkly brown heart is from my stash, and so is the pretty brown lace.....I think they soften the whole effect, which might have looked a bit cold without them.
What d'ya think.....I can take it.....I'm a big, isn't that where I came in :)

Some challenges:)

Anything Goes
