For all those who diet…

Hi everyone,

Its dh Craig’s birthday today, so i’m stealing a few minutes to share something with you. This is a project for all of the people in the world who diet!

One of my friends from work, Roz, has started dieting. The thought of dieting horrifies me, as I looove my food, but she has been so focused and determined that already the results are showing. As a gesture of encouragement, I decided to make her something crafty yet functional to show my support throughout the weeks ahead.

First I thought of a diary, but then I realised that it would inevitably read “day 1 – Hungry. Day 2 – Hungry. Day 3 – Sooooo Hungry!”….., and I really didnt want to make Roz something that reminded her of how starving she is.

So this is my gift to her – a Calorie Countdown!! Every week on the dreaded WeighDay, we produce the scales and this little book, and Roz gets the satisfaction of putting another couple of stickers onto the page, as she watches herself get closer to her goal. I hope it inspires her to keep on track, and to stay clear of that vending machine!

I hope you like it, and have a wonderful Sunday…for now, I have to go pamper Birthday Boy!
