Late post...

Oopppsss - I am soo sorry for the late post today... but I went to the Dr this morning and then ran some errands and then I had an email from Renae asking me to design a 3D Mailbox for her... you know like the big blue mailbox at the Post Office......

I have to tell you this was a challenge as I have never designed any 3d items... but dang if it wasn't kind of fun! But I do have to admit that it took up most of my afternoon designing..... I plan to do a coordinating file to go with it for the "decorations" but here is what I have come up with so far.......

So what do you think???

Well I went to see my Dr today - about the whole WEIGHT thing.... and I have to say I just love her - she is sooo awesome!! She confirmed that I was doing the right things (oh and for the record in order to lose weight they tell you need to eat between 1000 and 1200 calories a day -so my 1100 calories is right on target!!!)... and that she thought that there was a few other things I could be doing as well..... she gave me an appetite suppressant to help me get over my "stress" eating (I will only take that for 8 to 10 weeks max).... and then she said that I was an apple.

I looked at her like she was crazy!!!! A what???? I guess my body type is an "apple" since I carry all my weight in between my boobs and my lower tummy!! I had to laugh.... I had never been called an "apple" before and all I could think about was the fruit of the loom guys...... Bahahahahaha

Anyway - due to the fact that I am an "apple" she said that they have determined that most apples have an insulin problem - that I am NOT diabetic... but more than likely my body isn't responding to my insulin correctly. So she gave me another medication to take at night that would stabilize my insulin and kick start my metabolic system. I am suppose to take it night right before going to bed...

So we will see.... I have to go back and see her in a month.... crossing my fingers and saying my prayers here!!

Well that's it for today... no more talk about weight until NEXT Wed when I give my weigh in and progress report.... (Are you sighing relief???!!!) I do want to thank all of you that commented and are on the bandwagon with me.... it truly helps to know that I am not alone and that you guys will help keep me accountable (hey I WANT to learn to Kite Surf and I know you guys want to see those photos - right?!?!? LOL)

All righty - I am off to take a bath and watch a little TV.

Until Next Time!

Thanks again Lori for the box. It is awesome. Now I just wish I had a bigger cutter so I could cut it even bigger. I will be sending you picks after the weekend. I'm glad you enjoyed the challenge. I know I could never do it.

I'm glad your appointment went well. That's some good information, there usually is a bit more to it than the midnight snack. As for the 3d design... so cool, this opens a whole new avenue for your designs. HintHint - There is an August wedding in So. Tx. coming up. I may be begging for a file or two, we'll see. Have fun creating!

Lori, that is great your doctor was able to help you and give you some very good advice. I should talk to my doc as well as I am an apple too. lol. I have to be very careful though because diabetes does run in my family.
I love the new file, can't wait until it hits the store and I can go grab it up.
