*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Friday, February 10, 2017

Hi Everyone 😀
Hope you're doing well!
I'm all better from being sick!

I haven't talked about the "gym" in a long time! December and January weren't good months for me. Actually, you can include the end of November too. I actually gained back 10 pounds!

The last time we talked about my weight, I think I had lost 22 pounds. Well, I now have 32 pounds off! Happy Dance! I went through that down spiral, but I got myself out of it. We all go through things, don't we! I'm not giving up! I'm going to keep my smile bright and carry on! I don't know how long it's going to take me, but I am going to succeed!

For the past couple of weeks, I have been working on this painting. Especially, when I have been hungry! LOL! I kept putting layer, upon layer of paint on the canvas, when my mind was going to other places, but I finally finished it!

"Change Your Thoughts, Change Your World" (12" x 16" canvas)

Big Hugs

  5. I love this Stacy! Change Your Thoughts, Change Your World. The title is so inspiring. Keep up the good work. Slip ups are part of life but you have continued to be successful by the weight you have kept off. :)

  8. I love that painting - so different from your previous ones. Good luck on getting back into the gym. Set backs are so normal - you are going to make this no matter what!!! You have all the strength you need Stacy - trust that. And being sick - it takes time to get well again!!! Keep on going dear friend. Lots of hugs and love❤️

  13. YAY!!! That's awesome. Keep up the good work! I'm right there with you...but not nearly as far along. Seven pounds down and about 20 more to go. I use the old Weight Watchers plan that helped me lose 70 pounds 15 years ago. Basically I just write down everything I eat and it's all points-based, but not their new program. I still walk 3+ miles a day, but I've been doing that all along. Turns out that doesn't work so well if you're shoving food into your mouth indiscriminately!

  17. I love it. I think it is one of your best personally. I also love your header. Is that new? Your style seems to have changed a bit. In any case I like it. So I will be joining the diet band wagon as soon as I can get motivated. I have been way to much back into bread, and making goodies. Once Spring starts, and the mornings are getting lighter, I will feel more like buckling down to it. So proud of you for doing so well.
    Hugs, Janice
