Welcome to Over a Cup of Tea with Celia M. - #8
Autumn is starting to give way to the gloomy days and reminding us that winter and it's really cold days are not far behind. This day certainly felt more like winter than mid November. Looking out the kitchen window the trees are now bare and the gardens are looking grayish.
Inside the Christmas Cactus is blooming its bright red colour ...
To help ward off the chill this green ginger tea from TAZO was beckoning to be enjoyed.
To enjoy our tea I'm using a teacup and plate duo. It's stamped J.E. Caldwell & Co. Philadelphia and above that is a stamp that reads La Cloche - with the words French on one ribbon tip and China on the other. above that is a bell with T.V. and above that Limoges.
The teacup sits perfectly on the plate's indent leaving plenty of room for some goodies.
With Today's tea some mini croissants ...
I recently received an email with a question about how I was doing with my weight. The reader had read a post from my The Other Side of Thin Series - part One which I wrote in April - 2012. At that time I was weighing in at 145 lbs. and by June 2012 I was weighing in at 153 lbs. - I managed to get my weight down to 140 lbs by September 2012 and wrote about it here - Moving the Scale -The Other Side of Thin Series - where I shared tips on maintaining a healthy eating lifestyle. I'm happy to report that I did go on to loose an additional 10 lbs. - and have been maintaining my weight between 130 - 133 lbs. for almost 10 months.
I'm currently working on the next 10 lbs. hoping to get down to 120 lbs.
What tips can you share that have worked
for you in loosing the last 10 lbs. ?
Stay in Step with High Heeled Life ...
