I have been doing Weight Watchers for a month now ( and Slimming World for 4 months before that). I never went to group as there wasn’t one that was convenient for me to go to in the evenings and any day time groups were pointless as I always have two small people in tow. It hasn’t bothered me much that I can’t go to groups as I have my youtube videos, heres the latest one.
I wasn’t worried about not having support, the only thing that bothered me was that I missed out on the awards, I know, I know, I am a child who needs a well done certificate when I do something good. After what felt like 100 years I finally lost half a stone on Slimming World I wanted a reward for my hard work, so I made myself a award. I put in on my Instagram and everyone liked it and I thought it might be an idea to have them in my Etsy Shop.
I didn’t get around to doing it until last night, and I have sold 5 lots already so I guess I was right thinking other people who diet at home will want awards too. I always felt a pang of jealousy when I saw peoples fridges covered in awards, now I have my own.
I have made two sets on two kinds of cards. The first set is a sweary one which is tradionally what my business is known for.
This set is on thick 216gsm card that is slightly textured, it will be £2.00 plus postage. I am planning to add cards for higher weightloss goals, for example if you had 5 stone to lose I would continue the cards up to 5 stone loss and the additional cards would be 25p each so a 5 stone set would cost £3.00 plus postage.
I did another sweary set on thinner card at 160gsm that is smooth and in pastel colours.
This set is £1.50 plus postage as the card isnt at thick.
The following are the PG version of the cards, I wanted to makeup some for those people who don’t like swearing (like my mum), she would never in a million years use any of the explicit ones so these are for people like my mumma.
I really love the cards and I hope they help people who need a little bit of motivation and support who can’t get to a group or don’t want to go to a group.
I will be adding more designs to my shop over the coming months so keep you eyes peeled.
