Cute Poem & Miscellaneous

Here's a poem I came across while packing this morning. When I worked in Burnsville, MN we were fortunate enough to have Weight Watchers meetings once a week during our lunch. The leader handed these out to all of us. I thought it was a very nice gesture since they were also laminated and ready to hang on the fridge as a motivator.


Hello, do you know me? If you don't, you should.
I'm a pound of fat, and I'm the

even more pounds in weight.

left to do as I please.
So, when you weigh in keep right on saying,
"Oh, I only lost one pound." (As if that were such a terrible thing.)
For you see, if you do this, you'll encourage others
to keep me around because they'll think I'm
not worth losing. And, I love being around you -
your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips, and every part of you.
After all, I'm

Here's a couple of other interesting notes:

A friend, Karen Howard, has designed a blog specifically for challenges. It's called Feline Playful. She lists the challenges going by day. I know it's going to be very helpful for me! Check it out if you get the chance.

Another cool tool I found is Scrap by Color. This will be very handy when trying to coordinate colors for a layout. I like that you can upload a photo. Check it out!

Have a great day!
