A Little Extra Weight

This post is not about crafting, well I am trying to Craft myself into a better person. ;) Since I have given birth to Sweet pea I had gained 50 pound and  needed to lose 50 pounds. Over a year later and I still need to lose 50 pounds. gasp! Where did the first year go?!? None of my close  fit, still. So it's time to take action!!!

I am going to post every Thursday on my progress. I am hoping you ladies can help keep me in check. :) My hubby is great but not very good at the weight loss thing. (he say "hunny you look fine", as he is eating what ever he wants, darn men!) He did buy me a Wii fitness board and The Biggest loser game last year. (I know, very sad I really haven't used them. I am very lazy, lol) This year he bought me a Zumba game for it. Sweet pea just loves it! I had to hold her the entire time! The girl loves to dance!

When I reach my goal, losing 50 pounds (I am not telling how much I weigh right now ;) ) I have a pile of patterns waiting for me to be sewn up.


The first thing I am making will be this gorgeous jacket from Sew a Straight Line.  Love Love It!!


And this top from Made by Rae. I love the way it looks comfy and nice and cool for the hot summer months. I want to also make Sweet pea a matching short dress with bloomers underneath, I think that will be so cute on her!

Well, wish me lots of luck on my first week!


  1. I love that Made by Rae top! I made it like 2 summers ago and it turned out great. I plan to make more of them this summer.

  2. Hi Sharon,

    Great post. Keep up the great work, I've been using Sugar Busters so that I don't feel deprived of eating good food. It works really, really well.


  3. THanks I'll have to try that. :)


I would love to hear your comments
