My First Etsy Sale!

I had my very first sale on Etsy yesterday :) I am so psyched! I've been trying to sell these caddies that I originally made for a craft show for a while now & then the listings ended, so I just relisted them & right away, one sold! Woohoo! I just had to share my excitement :)

In other news, Jim & I just joined The Biggest Loser :) Be sure to watch for us in the fall line-up ;) Okay, so I'm kidding, of course. But we really did join a Biggest Loser program. It's through a local group & runs for 12 weeks. At the end of twelve weeks, the top 3 biggest losers will split the pot. It only cost $29 per person to enter & $25 of that goes into the prize fund. If you gain a pound or more during any given week, you have to add $1 per pound gained into the pot as well. I'm sure hoping that I won't be adding any money in! They did our weights & measurements tonight & according to their scale, I weigh about 2 lbs. more than mine, but then again, I weigh myself in the morning before I eat anything & also without any clothes on.....kinda hard to take my clothes off there, lol. Plus Jim & I had just had dinner about an hour before, so I'm sure that didn't help much, either. I'm just hoping that this is the extra push I need to keep going on my weightloss journey as I haven't been doing very good this week :( We ended up losing power AGAIN tonight, so we went to see the movie Step Brothers & in the process, I comsumed way too much popcorn! So my WW bonus points are about shot for this week!

I'm hoping to go shopping for some new sneakers tomorrow, too. My last 2 pairs of Rykas have worn spots in the heels down to the leather & they're giving me blisters on my heels :( I guess they're not meant for working out in or something. Anyone have any sneakers that they absolutely love?

Well, I'm off to bed as it was a very long day. Thanks for all the wonderful comments you left about my weightloss progress :) Reading your comments really encourages me even more!
