Since I began my weight loss adventure in March, I've lost 58 pounds through a balance of nutrition, fitness, and emotional changes. Sometimes its hard to believe I've lost that much. 7 months is a long time, and I don't always see how much my shape has changed. My clothes tell the whole story, though!

I knit myself a February Lady Sweater last August, and after losing 5" in my bust, I can't wear it anymore. So my mom jacked it from me and I re-knit it while on vacation last month.

In comparing the two pics of the sweater, I can really see how different I look!

Thank goodness for knitting, right?


  1. You look great! Good for you!

  2. You look so amazing and the new sweater is awesome! I'm in a place where my handknit sweaters are starting to get really tight and you are so inspiring!

  3. You look fabulous. And the sweater is very pretty, too!

  4. It's sad when a handknit doesn't fit anymore, but when it's for all good reasons, it becomes a celebration. Well done on the remake! The color is a happier one too!

  5. You go girl! That's awesome. good luck with the new blog, too.
