Wow a DOUBLE whammy sistahs… have you been spoiled this week or what? LOL

So now that the kids are settled in school and I have a bit of time for myself and lots of time for my sistahs  My BFF and I decided to start Weight Watchers.. (AGAIN. hmph).. this time though I will do it..LOL (if you scroll back far enough you will see that I have done it 687 times already LOL).. but this time….. So if anyone would like to buddy up, I am sharing my journey on Instagram and FB as well.. but I love me my Instagram :).. you can find me under this handle @stampingbella.   I know.. it’s a REHEALLY creative name..LOL

so here is my BFF Melissa walking in… she was SO mad at me taking this picture LOL… but hey  that’s what friends are for, no?


So our journey begins.  Any great recipes, ideas, blogs, websites,  foods etc would be SO appreciated 🙂  or any inspirational stories too.  I read EVERY SINGLE COMMENT and will start responding within the thread.. so stay tuned.

Ok so the reason I tell you this story is because I have another seniorita to introduce to you… You ready?

MEET….. senior-ita GLORIA


Now Gloria and her sentiment can be interpreted in many different ways :)… Like.. “ech screw it, eat the piece of cake …LOL”… or “YOU CAN DO IT” and still succeed… or simply, do what makes you happy :).. the image and the sentiment don’t necessarily have to go together.   She so makes me laugh as I feel like her every day.. like “will it show on the scale if I am standing and eating?”.. sitting is a different story ..LOL.. I just love these characters because not only are they amazing Senior-ita images but they also bypass age.. doesn’t EVERYONE step on the scale with one toe?  Doesn’t EVERYONE eat cake?  Doesn’t everyone SHOVE CAKE  DOWN THEIR THROATS WHILST STANDING UP AND KICKING THE SCALE OUT DA WINDOW? LOL.. I know I do 🙂  do youuuu”?

So there you have it.  My Gloria 🙂

  8. Caryl says:

    Love the new characters! You might want to try chocolate vitalicious muffin toppers. Sugar free are only 90 calories and reg are 100. They are also high in fiber and satisfy that chocolate craving. I like to eat mine frozen–that way they take longer to eat!

  9. Michelle Galloway says:

    Good Luck, EM! with the WW, my BFF’s and I just did our September weigh in and measurements, and did our fit test in my “basement workout” room, heres to a successful fall season!

  15. Denimo says:

    Oh dear heavens… another FAB senior-ita! I LOVE Gloria. I’m just afraid she hits a little too close to home!! 🙂

    Wonderful cards again ladies! Impressive!

  16. Love the cards this week and LOVE the new stamp. I was just saying the other day that in despite of the fact that I have a hundred or more stamps (likey more) I’m bored with them and I need new ones. I do believe I see two for sure that will find their way to me!

  17. Gloria is so fun! I love reading your blog, even if I rarely comment… you always make me smile! I will try to dust off my stamps and play along this week… 🙂 Have a wonderful day, Emily!

  21. Vivie Lee says:

  27. Diana B says:

    It’s a good thing my UGs are so thin, I need to have room in my Stamping Bella box for the new ‘rita’ collection! I am loving them!

  28. Eileen M says:

    Best wishes on the weight loss journey. Several of my siblings did quite well, and my brother is now a leader, in Pennsylvania. It has helped him stay at goal for over a year.
    Love Gloria, and the artwork is awesome! Can’t wait to get a few of these “senior-itas in my collection!

    Weigh to go for resuming your weight loss journey! I resumed mine a couple of years ago myself and am happy to say I reached my goal in just under a year and now, almost a year after THAT reached another milestone. Took part in my first organized 5k – the colourful “Run or Dye” here in Ottawa. It was a blast! Small steps…that’s the big secret! Absolutely LOVING Gloria – she just went on my want list. I’m sure the ladies in my weight loss group (T.O.P.S.) would love to get inspirtational cards featuring her!

  47. Karen Wardley says:

    Gloria is fabulous and tell Melissa great pic she’ll soon be her shadow!!!! Good luck ladies on your journey

  48. Virginia Kuberski says:

    My friends and were talking about how satisying a cupcake can be when you’re craving something sweet! Gloria takes the words right out of my mouth! Love her!

  49. Leslie G says:

    Ooh my, Gloria could be my MIL years ago :). Loving these new senior-itas! Loved this weeks sketch too….must get working on my “circles” card!! My advice for WW…just take one day at a time, one step in front of the other! Mwah!

  50. Tracy says:

    I vote for kicking the scales out the window. LOL Honestly I wish you well on your new journey. I’ve done it and it CAN be done. It’s a slow process but so rewarding. 🙂 Gloria is awesome!

  51. Pat K says:

    The Senior-itas are fabulous…can’t wait to see more.

Good luck to you Em and your friend:-)

  55. SharonP says:

    Ohhhhh Nooooo this release is going to be way beyond choosing! I can hear my cheque book groaning now because so far, I’m getting them all! Can’t help notice the contrast, it’s like the utg are who we used to be or wanna be and the seniorita’s, well let’s just say they might be a bit closer to reality ha ha! Good luck with your WW journey, I am doing the Atkins but I beat you I am at about 999 times!

  57. Christine says:

    Hello Everyone!
    I’m sneaking peeks at the comments on these again and I had to jump in and say thank you!! I’m having such fun drawing these stamps. And as I sit here suffering with shingles of all things…(shoulder, down my left arm and onto my hand. Leftie, the drawing hand!! I have other appendages this awful condition could have chosen…how rude)…your comments are making me smile. Big. So thank you again!!

  62. Jennifer bradley says:

    Great cards and fun sneaky peaky!

  63. Tracy says:

    I absolute love Gloria, I must have her LOL!!! She might be me- accept I feel I am tad younger. Also, I am right there with you with WW, I don’t start and stop, just keep paying the monthly fee, and being stalled at the same weight! But is a great program and really works when you do it! Good luck to you.

  64. I love these new “Senior Ladies” and are we all fighting against our kilos? I do it since my Teenage years…sob! Wish you good luck with WW.

  71. I’m going through stamping withdrawls, I’m over in Europe for a while and rely on my mom to send me stuff over here, I would love to have her send me these (or all the sneak peeks!) just kidding! I’ld be happy with one!

  76. Cathy P in AZ says:

    Christine – you are a creative genius! Every girl understands this funny dilemma Gloria is facing and I sure can relate! Em – weight loss is a daily journey and an adopted permanent lifestyle. I have lost 182 pounds to date – and would like to lose about 50 more. Keep moving, trying and fighting – it is SOOO worth it! 🙂 And have some cake every so often cuz an occasional splurge is good for you too!
