    So I have been in a really low mood since I hit my midweek blues in week 2. I'm now in week 4, and finding it hard to stick with the SSing....but I actually think I have started losing weight again - which is good news at last! It helps to keep me motivated!!

    Now my mood is a little lighter - I just thought I'd share something 'off topic' with you. A few weeks ago I got invited to an online lottery syndicate. Its really paying off - so if anyone's interested....I'll give you the details.

    Don't want to offend anyone - so if you want more info...just send me a quick mail - with your email address.

    I seem to have taken on all sorts of new projects/hobbies, as now I'm not eating - I have more time to fill - to avoid me watching my boyfriend eat!

    Anyone else have any new hobbies??

    My mum bought me a knitting kit for christmas. I hid it in the back of the cupboard for a 'rainy day'. I might start that soon...unless anyone has any ideas I can adopt for keeping my mind off food?

    Any suggestions??!

    I'd suggest scrapbooking: a great way of 'telling your story' using all your old photos presented in a beautiful, personal way.

    Here's a link to a website where you can see some examples. (You have to register but as far as I'm aware it's quick and free) :)

    My new hobby is baking. I can't stop! My cupboard is now full of every ingredient ever invented and I'm baking goodies every day. Total madness really when I can't eat them! What a strange hobby to choose. People at work are enjoying the results though, lol.

    I love knitting when it gets to this time of the year - when the temperature drops!

    Keeps my mind occupied!

    Got some gorgeous knitted coat patterns from the USA - found them on Ebay - and they are stunning. Can't wait to start one!

    i got right into the baking thing when i started cd, it seems to have gone off abit now. The result was that my sister in law (who lives with us) put on 10lbs - oops! she was too skinny anyway! lol

    I am thinking of taking up horse riding again - havent done it for years but may go next week.

    Also, i really want to start scrapbooking - cant see that link - anyone know of any sites or books that give a real beginners guide because i have no idea how to start.

    I've also signed up for a jewellery making course which starts next week.

    This diet makes you refocus on all areas of your life dont you think?

    I do cross stitch, but I have done it for about 15 years... simple patterns to start with, but now the more complicated the better!:D

    i want to get one of those child seats to put on the back of my bike so i can take my little boy out. It is very hilly round where i live though so i would probably end up pushing him most of the time!

    Well i've been sorting through the CD's of all the photos i've got , still got loads more but i'm making up a folder and putting all the photos i want to take to the shop to be printed , and put it all in a scarp book , of my kids and family ... I think thats going to take time . I've done one of my older boys just got to update the ones i've got over the last 4 years now . All photos these days are on CD s and you cant flip over the book ... you have to turn on the pc and really you hardly do that . So thats my task , russiandoll i'll have a look at that site too . Think that will keep me busy :)

    I want to find sugar-craft lessons locally. I don't actually like sweet stuff as much as savoury ironically, but I love modelling (as in with icing & stuff - duhn!).

    Isn't it funny? I could do the sugar thing all night without temptation, just total absorbtion in the finicky detailing, colouring & stuff. Put me near pasta & parmesan though and baton down the hatches!
