Pink Saturday Teacups

It's Pink Saturday again sponsored by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Everyone has such great things to share. This week I am showing my 'Boyd Bear' titled "Ms.Griz...Saturday Night". This is what I have been doing almost every night since November 13, 2009. That's when Janet, Micki and I started our diet. We went to a Bariatric Clinic in NC and started eating healthy. We counted total fat grams, calories and sodium. After a couple of days of reading labels, it became very easy to know just what to eat. A pill every day to help curb your appetite helped also. To date I have lost 43 pounds and have gone from a size 18W to a loose size 12. Janet has lost 78 pounds and has gone from a size 22W to a 14. She looks like she did when she was in high school. Micki has not been as lucky as us, because of the economy, but she has lost 40 pounds and is holding steady. I'm not sure what size she wears now. I will have to post some before and after pictures soon.

Here are a few pink teacups that I really love....

and a small dish with a mini-pipe.

Happy Pink Saturday!
