Weight Loss Update and a Cutie

Well, it's February 1st
and I promised I would post an update
the first of every month.
For the month of January
I lost 6 lbs.
I had already lost weight before I started blogging about it,
so now I'm officially down 16 lbs.

But it's not just the weight loss I'm focusing on.
I want to also focus on the changes going on
with my perspective on life.
I've realized that somewhere down the path,
I lost  my fun side.
I've decided to become that fun person again.
So, I'll be going out more,
hanging out,
releasing stress,
instead of forgetting how to have fun.
To be honest, I cannot believe
I forgot what it was like to go out and laugh so hard your belly hurts.
Never in my life time did I EVER think that would happen.

I also have felt the  power of letting go.
It's very awakening.

I still have a lot of mountains to climb,
and I'm curious what I'll be writing about come March 1st,
but for now,
I'm feeling like I can do this.  honor of my new adventure...
I tried some embroidery yesterday.
How cute is this?

I'm pretty much loving this little guy.
It may go on the pouch I'm making for the Mouth Stitches Swap
I'm participating in.
I think it could be pretty darn cute!

I hope you all are having the time of your life!

Congratulations on the lost pounds! But more importantly, I'm so happy that you are enjoying life. Laughing so hard it hurts is something we should all be doing on a regular basis.

I love your stitches. Great job!

I really admire you for making these changes. I think sometimes we all step back and realise we're merely existing and that we need more.

Congratulations on the weight loss. That's gotta make you feel fantastic !
