Embroidery and Weight loss
About 1 year ago, I closed my inbound marketing business and returned to corporate America. I guess the guilt of 'selling out'
was so overwhelming that I gained 30 lbs. I had to do something about my bulging belly. I started thinking about the things I did before returning to a 9 to 5, what did i do to relax? - I created - I made something every week. When I am stitching, I don't think about eating because I am not stressed.
I decided to embark on a major project, one that would keep me busy for a while. I had an embroidery pattern that I picked up for .25 cents in the clearance bin at Walmart a few years ago. This was going to be my relaxation project.
- Embroidery Project
The pattern measures approximately 17 x 23 inches. If I work on it in between my others projects, I should be finished by the end of March.

Since I started, I have decreased my calorie intake to about 1600 per day. Before, I was consuming about 3000 calories daily.

One Rose down, several to go... One pound down, several to go...
Wish me luck
