The Power of One!

Well, for those who don't know I am a Weight Watchers girl. Sometimes I am watching my weight go up...and wishing it would go down. I can lose weight with the best of them, but can get overwhelmed by the "big pile" of weight I need to lose.
Today our wonderful leader (Hi Shelly) did a meeting on the "power of 1" Meaning one pound at at a time and MORE. Stuff like: Eating 1 more veggie a day, walking 1 more mile, doing 1 more good thing and 1 less bad.
So I am going to put it on my computer and think about it ALL week. One more "I Love You" for those you love. One less bad attitude in traffic. One more thing you have procrastinated. One more smile.
How can you do "one" thing? One less impulse purchase on something pricey. One more hour in your worst room, picking up?

So in that 'vein' here is just ONE picture that makes me smile. A good friend, Jill, asked me to repaint her frog...she did NOT specify HOW....I had a bit of a paint party with it. I figured if she hated it I would repaint boring green. However, this made me LAUGH while doing it, while handing it over and while watching her S.O. see it.

This just shows you ONE of my many facets...the goofy one. Notice Frogetta is wearing PEARLS, has eyelashes and you cant' see her LIPS...she has red lipstick. :-D BTW, Jill LOVED it and has it just as it is in her garden.

Wow, I am so glad you got the concept!! I think sometimes others don't know they can use what I say in the "real world".

Thanks for being a great friend!

What what a great pretense! You've inspired me to approach each day (or atleast this one) with this attitude. So often we lose sight of the simple things and life can become overwhelming. I'll be back to see how you are doing!

I saw your comment on My Romantic Home about painting paneling and wanted to say that a number of years ago we had a house that had a lot of brown paneling in it. Because we knew we weren't going to be there for the long haul, instead of ripping it all out, he just filled in the grooves and painted it white, and you could not tell it was paneling afterward, it looked so good. If you do it, you won't regret it! :o)
