Losing weight is my dream, weaving is my hobby

Hi Friends, The story behind my user name is based on the fact that I do weaving. I do some loom weaving n& own 3 looms but right now I am caught up in basket weaving & pine needle baskets, sweet grass baskets & tho it looks easy. It isn't, at least for me. I couldn't buy the sweet grass because it was SOO expensive so I grow my own & I am having fun doing it. I spent the summer working on what they call an Inkle loom. Just a small loom that makes straps. A few of us from our club who stayed here (snowbirds go north) made what we called Inkle babies for the upcoming AZ Federation Dinner in April. We made about 200 & we made their faces from a piece of stocking & added beads for the eyes. Then I made hair. Some babies have little hair, others have braids & the Grandmas have gray hair piled up in a bun. Maybe I can get a picture sometime & put it on the site.
I have always been "accused" of always smiling & happy. Thats the other part. I decided a long time ago to alwys smile because then people would wonder what I am up to. LOL. Thanks for asking.

I can see, that until I really understand all of this program, my weaving will have to take second place but that is OK because this is my priority!.

My Goals:
OK. I realize that for right now that I am going to work at making maintaining a way of life. I only needed to go another 11 lbs to attain my self imposed Goal Weight. I have had some hard knocks with my health & so have remained right at 161 for too many weeks now. So lets see how I can maintain & perhaps when I get feeling better I will tackle those last 11 lbs.


My Program:
My primary exercise is Aquaroebics & some water jogging. I do everything in water up to my neck & that way my spine can hang & it really relieves my back pain.

    Philippians 4:6-7
    Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. (NLT)

    Whenever you feel your goal is a million miles away or you wonder if you can keep going on--Ask God to help you.
