Body Changes...

Still working on life changes and one of the biggest was trying to get to a healthy weight & size. So far so good, I think, but there is still quite a ways to go. Today was weigh-in and measurements day. Ugh...I dread the end of every month now.

Anyway now that I'm down 17 pounds and 22.25 inches I'm having a new issue. I can't figure out how to dress my body not that I was having an easy time of it before losing the weight. I am in between sizes but if I don't find some clothes to wear than I'm going to have to go naked soon and that is a vision that no one wants to have. My problem is nothing fits right especially since I'm losing faster in some parts than in others. And don't even get me started on bras. You know when your band size gets smaller your cup size should too. It should be a law of nature that both bra measurements should shrink together. In my case that is not happening. In August when I got serious about the weight loss thing my bra size was 38D as of March my bra size is now 34DDD.

I need to figure out something to wear to have a picture made for the weight loss contest going on at the dojang. They want before and after photos. I don't have a current before photo and I can't figure out what to wear because I don't have any sport bras that fit.
This is a photo of me in October. I had lost 3.5 pounds and about 8 inches when this was taken. I let hubby talk me into buying this swimsuit. Don't know what the heck I was thinking and he must be blinder than I thought!


  1. OH GET OUT OF TOWN WOMAN!!!! You look absolutely fine! You won't catch me in a bikini!!!!

  2. Suzanne, it sounds like you are really doing great. I'm so impressed with the way you are taking control of your life. Thanks for bringing us along for the ride. :)

  3. Why is it that when I Lose weight, I lose my boobs completely?!!! I think I shall stay "fluffy". (Ok...seriously, I did the Weight Watchers thing about 8 years ago, and I lost 40 pounds....and have managed to keep about 2/3 of it off). Kudos to you for trying to lose weight!

Guess who is Sewing...

Look what I made!!! I have not done anything creative in a very long time. Don't ask me what made me decide to give sewing a go again because I have no idea. The pattern for this bag is from Alicia Paulson and is called Jane Market Bag, you can find it on her website for only $6. It was so easy to follow the instructions. I would definitely recommend that you have a larger cutting surface and ruler to make it easier to cut the pieces out. My little 12x12 cutting surface and 6x13 clear ruler made cutting the pieces slightly difficult but not impossible.

Don't you just love the red fabric! I purchased the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a couple of years ago to make an apron and since I had some left over thought I would use it for my first bag. The pattern calls for the use of 4 different fabrics but I decided to just use the 3. The inside of the bag is lined with the same black and white check fabric I used on the handles. These are so cute & are a great size so I will definitely …

Holy...Hot Flash... Batman!!!

It appears that I am definitely in menopause at least according to my recent blood test. I've been going through perimenopause for the last several years. You know hot flashes, night sweats and crazy cycles, etc. In the past twelve months I've only had 2 periods and the hot flashes have been worse than ever!

Life On An Even Keel...

On An Even Keel is an idiom that means - calm and not likely to change suddenly, balanced. This is how I want my life to be. It use to be this way 15 years ago and I'm not sure exactly what happened to change that position. Everything about my life feels completely out of balance & so crazy and I cannot take it any more! Some way, some how we have got to turn things back around and get on an even keel again!!! 

My plan for 2011 is to find that balanced and calm life again. I am working on cleaning out and getting rid of stuff. Only keeping what means something to us. I want to get started working on decorating our house and turning it into a HOME and not just a house. And I want to get our finances in a better place. As always I am open to any suggestions anyone may have to assist in this change.
