So sad...

I came across this picture from last year's doll show. How sad is this? Sad that I looked the way I did, sad that I felt the way I did. I couldn't even force much of a smile to hide how I was feeling. I hardly know who that person is, but st... Read more

Hit a century mark today! Seven months ago I would not have believed this would be possible. I was barely alive and barely cared. Almost every day I revel in little changes that no one but me can even notice and I accept these changes with a... Read more

I finally made it below 300! I am not sure, but I think it's been at least 15 years since I've seen that number. I dreamed of this day and pictured myself jumping up and down and screaming with joy, but that didn't happen. It was more of a ca... Read more

I have not been working in the shop lately as it's too hot and I simply have not been inspired. That's ok except it makes me have more time to feel munchy. Case in point, I went to the fridge to prowl and realized that I needed to clean the ki... Read more

60 lbs gone. Done in 3 month and a half months. My friend, whom I had not seen since before I began changing my life, said I had changed in ways other than the physical. She said I seemed more open, outgoing and confident. My husband said so... Read more

I gotta get more consistent with this blog. I tend to pour out my feelings on my team page, rather than here. Anyway, I've had some great changes recently. Went to the Martha Pullen sewing expo last Sat. When I went last yr, I had to use my ... Read more
