Measure Up Monday

Well, only two days left of the first week of my Curves diet (which is more like just learning to eat healthy and watching portion sizes). I know I have lost weight, my scale is now reading 14_, instead of 15_, which is so exciting. I always love hitting a new second number. So far, in the last year, I have lost at least 15 pounds. I will weigh in at my Curves club on Wednesday with a proper scale, so I'll know for sure how many pounds this week dropped.

This first week limits your calories to 1200 a day to jump start your metabolism. I must say, I have eaten a little more than that each day, just because I've been so hungry. But that's ok with me. I know the things I am eating are healthy and the portions are not oversized, so I'm fine with that. Weight loss isn't worth getting irritable and shakey to me. Besides, I don't think that is the goal, either.

I tried out some eyeliner. I'm not sure what I think. I like having more definition, but I'm having a hard time getting a smooth thin line. Maybe it's the pencil? It just ends up looking like a thick smudging, powdery line. Maybe the pencil's not sharp enough? I don't know. Anyone have any tips or eyeliner reccomendations?

Hello! First time here. I came over via your comment at It's Almost Naptime. Congratulations on your new blog and on jumping right in with the carnivals! Most of us were too timid at first to do anything like that. You're going to rule bloggyland!
