As some of you already know, I started a diet program in mid July last summer. So I thought I'd update you all on my weight loss progress. As of this morning, I've lost 58 pounds. WOW! I'm even amazed with myself! I've been on the maintenance part of this program. I went from eating a high protein and veggie diet to 1200 calories a day with starches, fruits, dairy and fats. This has been a real eye opener as to how much I ate. I was never a real garbage eater, but the quantities were way too much. So I've learned to tone that down and I'm doing just fine with my portion control. I've even lost 8 pounds since being on the maintenance part of this phase, about four weeks now. I have only 19 more pounds to loose. I know I can do this and I'm happy with what I've accomplished so far.
I've also listed a new brooch yesterday. It's called Angel Wings, even though my husband said that it looks like a whale and my daughter said it looked like a musical note. So this brooch can be whatever you want it to be, but for me, it's an angel wing. She's made of copper wire formed into a wing, then I wire wrapped small frsh water pearls around the wing. I added some Swarovski crystals just for the sparkle.
Have a great weekend.
