Confession time…. when I saw the Embossing Paste in the new catalog I said to myself, “Nope, nada, never gonna happen.”  It looked messy and Connie “don’t do messy”.

I was sticking to my guns and refused to buy the new Embossing Paste but wouldn’t you know it, I kept seeing wonderful projects created with it.

NO, I WON’T BUY IT.  Well, that’s what I told myself but I placed an order yesterday and Embossing Paste was at the top of my list.  What changed my mind?  Well I saw a great video that Stampin’ Up put out about Embossing Paste and well, what can I say?  It didn’t look that messy, the texture was amazing, and it looked so easy to work with.

Some things I learned about Embossing Paste

  • It dries quickly so I don’t have to wait 24-hours for it to dry
  • You can color Embossing Paste with reinker – custom colors!  LOVE it!
  • A little goes a long way so it’s a product that will last and last
  • Use with Pattern Party Masks for a perfect pattern every time.  There are 4 patterns in the package.
  • It dries fast so be sure to clean the tools right away.

I can’t wait for my order to come now!  Not sure why I judged that little jar so harshly but now I am excited!

Let me share today’s WHAT’S NEW WEDNESDAY video with you.  Maybe it will change YOUR mind too…

A Weight Watchers update today…. so I have been stuck on a roller coaster for the last 6 weeks.  Up 2 lbs., down 2 lbs. up 1 lb., down 1 lb.  I just wasn’t getting past my initial 12 lb. loss.  I was so frustrated!  

If you’re not familiar with how Weight Watchers works, you get “points” for the day and every food has a point value.  You also get “Weekly” points that you can use in any way or any time you want (so yes, you can have pizza, birthday cake, or a nice dinner out).

I have been exercising a lot and staying under my Daily Points and not touching my Weekly Points. I was proud of the fact that I was able to resist the Weeklies.  So, like I said, I am stuck on this roller coaster of gaining/losing. I did some research and people were saying to make sure you are eating your Weekly Points if you are stuck on a plateau.  Hey, you don’t have to tell me twice to EAT MORE to lose weight.  This past week we had that huge meal at the Melting Pot and then I drank a lot of fruit smoothies.  Well, mainly grapes…. fermented grapes.  Okay, I drank wine… a lot of wine… last week.  I blew through those Weekly Points with no problem whatsoever.  Did I exercise as much as I normally do?  Nope.  Just busy I guess, but I did get about 4 hours of walking in last week but I usually get 5-6.

With all that said, did I lose weight last week?  I can’t believe it, but yes.  I lost 2 lbs.  WHAT??????  I think what was happening is that, even though I was staying within my Daily Points and with all the exercise, my body went into “starvation mode”, holding on to fat rather than letting it go.

Lesson learned!  I will now eat those Weekly Points and enjoy them!  However, I might want to cut back on my “grape smoothies”. hehehe
