Soy Tealights and 20 lbs.

*Hugs* to my blogging circle of friends!!

I haven't had a chance to blog very much still. I have had a chance to do some blog reading lately and trying to catch up. I miss you all and think of you and wonder how everyone is when I'm not here. Then its refreshing and a relief to find out everyone is doing so well with Christmas and showing all their lovely Christmas in their homes.


I know we're all busy getting ready for Christmas. Can you believe its REALLY next week? I can hardly. I didn't get a chance to put my new Soy Candles into my etsy shop as I'd hoped to. I've been making tealights, votives, jar candles, wax melts and tonight I made my first pillar. I'll wait 48 hours and check how it burns. Fun. Don't they look Yum? I hope to put some out in the new year at least.

I wanted to do a "Show and Tell" of me. I had posted that on October 1st two days after we got back from LasVegas I started on a new eating plan. So far I've lost 19 lbs...20 TODAY actually.

So this is me with my mother in Vegas a couple of days before I started this food plan.

This is me 2 months later to the day when Marc and I celebrated the American Thanksgiving at my girlfriend Kirsti's home. I have lost 6 pounds since that celebration. Hooray for me. I do truly feel so much better for it.

Keep well and enjoy this beautiful time of the year. Hold a spot for me ... I hope to see you more frequently soon...Judi xoxo
