One Year Weight Loss Anniversary!

So, it was a year ago today that I decided to do something about my weight, so I started working out every day or mostly every day and doing portion control.  If the portion size was half a cup of ice cream, then I would measure it out.  So a year later and I have lost a total of 73 pounds.  I am still currently losing weight, it has just slowed down a lot.  I lose like a half a pound a month now, but I will take it.  I am going to share some pictures at different intervals throughout the weight loss.  I am 5 foot 6 and a half inches tall, I started out weighing 220 pounds and I currently weigh 147 pounds.

And now the bikini shot, now I don't normally where a bikini, unless I am at a beach where I don't know anybody or at a friends house, but Jason loved it. I still have a lot of toning to do, and everything doesn't just bounce right back after having a child, but I am proud of my body now.

It's Been A While

So, it has been a long time since I posted, but not since I crafted, I am sticking to my New Year's resolution and have made at least one card a month.  This post will contain all of my June cards. I got the chance to craft with Cass, she gave me a card kit for my birthday and I made a bunch of cards from the kit and used her cuuuute stamp set that she brought with her.

A card I made for a friend that lost both her parents.
The next cards are cards I made from the card kit Cass got me for my birthday.

The next 2 cards are what I made with this cuuute stamp set that Cass had brought, she received it from a sweet crafting friend.
I made the background with the fan and flower stamps, then popped up the cute girl image. 
 My favorite card, I made with paper that Cass had given me and using her stamp set, in fact I don't think I even used any of my stuff this day, everything was either Cassie's, or given to me by her. LOL
I used the cute sushi image to make the background.
I had a great craft day, and I have stuck to my resolution, just posted a little late.  Have a great July 4th, everyone, gonna go lay out, so I don't fry when I am in Florida.
