    I guess I am becoming a regular customer at Shane Lee. The little fabric/clothing shop here in Murray. She really gave me great deals today. I was shocked. I bought 12 plus yards of fab and it only cost me $12.00. Six of the fabs were $6.99 and the other 6 were $4.99. Also there was a yard end piece left on one of the bolts and she said I am just gonna give you this. They really have some nice fabric's in this shop and they are so friendly.

    This is the end of my buying spree. I have vowed not to buy anymore. That is I will buy only each time I lose 10 pounds of fat. I have been bad last couple of months with my diet and it is time to get back on the boat.

Have you ever followed a died of no more than 45 carbs per meal? three snacks not over 20 carbs.. morning noon and after dinner? When my son in law bacame a diabetic we at home followed this diet. tried to stay with healty carbs... I lost 25 lbs in 2 months and need I say my Dr. was shocked, she actually bowed to me hahaha.... any way give it a try. I hear oatmeal is what they call a free carb, hmmm no not all day long :) good luck to you on your diet... (((hugs)))

    Not sure I could do that!! Here is the honest truth I don't like to have to have to count the calories or carbs. I just cut back on what I eat and gave up sweets but since Christmas I have let the bad stuff back in and I am paying for it. LOL!!

    Hi Carrie, keep it up girl, it is Ok to take time out from dieting but as my doc said, it is the cholesterol that talks!!

    Love your fabrics, that must be some shop. If I'm ever out that way I'll be sure and stop. My daughter has a phone interview this coming Friday with the university of Kentucky in Lexington. I'm keeping my figures crossed for her. Maybe Kentucky will be my new destination!:)

    If your ever out this way you better give me a hollar! :-) My Sis and bro-n-law live in Lexington and they love it there. It's too big for me, I like the small cities.

    Nice score!

    Echoing everybody on: don't be hard on yourself!

    Look at all that "sweet" fabric, now you don't need any sweet treats LOL

    Hi Carrie! I loooove your fabbies!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I agree with cutting back ( I hate counting calories etc) but also get out and do some walking if you can.
    Exercise has always helped me lose weight when I get the willpower to do it lol

    Boy did you luck out! Great stash builder you picked up. And we all have up and down months when it comes to dieting. I suck at dieting. Recently however I was told I needed a low protein diet which amazingly is like a low carb diet at the same to. I was not impressed HOWEVER lost 29lbs in 6 weeks. I was shocked at what had protein in it. Spinach? I had thought ah a bag of spinach I can eat that instead of meat. HAH. One bag of spinach (which cooks down to a cereal bowl) is 12 grams of protein. With only 30 a day allowed that nixed that good plan. I don't miss it much. I do miss the carbs (they are loaded with protein too) but not enough to think on it. The upside with all that fabric if you stick with the no shopping rule is.. you now have incentive to sew your fingers off for the next few weeks and with all that time behind the machine.. who has time to shop or eat? Win win if you ask me!

    What a haul. It is wonderful to have such a wonderful relationship with a retailer plus your winning smile and cheery personality...is that it? Happy planning to use all that beautiful fabric.

    Carrie, you already have succeeded as far as I'm concerned. You are a dear friend to all!!
    I mentioned how I dislike counting calories, points etc- my reason is b/c it just seems to make me focus too much on what I can't have, if that makes any sense!
    I do a lot better when I cut down what I eat, drink lots of water, and walk. Maybe it's just psychological but it works for me :D
