Playing Tag with Soap Friends

I've been tagged by Elizabeth at Gassner Custom Soaps
These are the rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged you
2) Post the rules on your blog (this is what you are now reading)
3) Write 6 random things about yourself (see below)
4) Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them (This is only a game)
5) Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog
6) Let the tagger know when your entry is up

OK, so here goes random:

1. I was in the band with my future husband in elementary school. He played the Sax and I played the flute. He was in 5th grade and I was in 4th.2. I weighed 80 lbs more than I do now after I had Ella. My two best friends were Ben & Jerry.

3. I live 90 miles away from the nearest Target. I've been to Target twice in my life... and I loved it!
4. Gerry took all of my siblings, their spouses, my bff Laurel and me out for the best night of my life for my 40th birthday. He took care of all of the details which included a limo into Boston, a spectacular meal and a night for the 2 of us at the Omni Parker House Hotel in Boston. It was a blast!

5. I got a tatoo when I was 39 and my MIL didn't know about it until this year (2 years later.) I don't think she loves tatoos... :)

6. I never in a million years would have considered myself crafty enough to be a soaper, but it has become the second most fun thing I do~next to being a Mom/Wi
fe.So now it's time for tagging.....

1. Sherrie at Birch Bark Soap
2. Michelle at Oats and Honey
3.Jennie at Beehive and Bird's Nest
4.That Guy from Soap with Balls
5. Elizabeth from Gracefruit
6. Diana from Shea Bath

Love to you all!

Hi Heather! I guess maybe I don't like to follow rules, after modifying two tags in a row! But my entry is up, and thanks for tagging me! :)

You got a tatoo at 39? LOL! That is a very interesting fact.

Hey Heidi~I lost the weight using a modified Atkins plan. I ate/eat lots of lean protein and tons of veggies.
Not so much the refined sugar, bread, pasta (although dreamfields is low carb and good) I look at sugar counts and carb counts in everything.

I am always hungry (or feel like eating LOL!) so this was great because you can eat lots as long as it's high/lean protein & veggies. (Imagine a salad that would feed 6 people and me in front of it with my fork!)

Also, the weight comes off fairly quickly. I hit a plateau after losing about 40 lbs, but you just have to push through that. I found my energy levels were higher. I think I am a high carb addict who is now in recovery! :)

Don't push yourself, though. You just barely had a baby! You'll have a moment when it all feel right and then go for it. Good luck! xoxo Heather
