It's been over a year since I last posted. Lots of things have changed in my life in the last 18 months. I've lost over 130 lbs. This has changed me completely. Not just in appearance but in my whole outlook on life. I'm not in constant pain from my joints that were protesting the abuse I was giving them being so heavy. My days had no purpose and I was wallowing in self pity.
Now I have a job at a local high school making costumes for the Drama dept. I love the sewing and creating for these kids. I'm making jewelry, always a passion of mine and have my own Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/victoriouscat (shameless plug) I've been exploring the Neo Victorian Steampunk Genre and love working with vintage items and re purposing them into new things.
I exercise now! I'm off my butt and the aches I get now are from sore muscles. I didn't even know I had muscles. I'm loving Zumba and although I have 2 left feet (sometimes it looks like I have 3 left feet), I'm moving and jiggling and sweating and having a ball. Who knew it could be fun to exercise? Not this couch potato but I'm a reformed woman.
I'm not even sure if anyone even remembers that I had a blog but I'm going to try and keep up and post a bunch about my jewelry and other projects. I'm working on a Steampunk Frock Coat that I'm making from a gorgeous brocade jacket.
Isn't life fun?
