I hope everyones year was great! Mine was great this year. I learned a lot of new things, my life has progressed considerably since last year, and I met friends that I think I will keep the rest of my life. I'm gonna watch the ball drop tonight but I will probably celebrate it on sunday. Sunday is what I call my cheat day, it is the day I can eat whatever I want to, regardless of my diet. Actually I wouldn't really call it a diet it's more of a lifestyle change. I'm not really omitting certain things I just don't eat crap often. Like sweets, soda's, or horrendous amounts of salt, sugar, fat, carbs or calories. I believe in everything in moderation, along with a steady workout plan and lots of nutritional education. I have lost a considerable amount of weight since I began this lifestyle change. I have gone from over 200 lbs and a size 20 jean to a healthy 165 lbs and a size 14 jean... and I'm only halfway there. I still have to get to my goal weight of 125 lbs, which is the weight I was at before I started gaining. Here are some photos. First is what I used to look like at 125 lbs, what I gained to which is 200+ lbs and where I am now at 165 lbs. If you are trying to lose weight and want to know my secrets, comment or send me a message and I will be thrilled to share them with you. My husband is working on a book to chronicle our journeys in hopes that someone will be helped. Thanks for reading and I hope that you all have a great night. Be safe and remember to keep on crocheting!

Hello, my name is Sharlena Aronhalt. I am really crafty and love to shop for and blog about crafting. It doesn't matter what type of crafting it is (except for knitting and tatting) I love to try new things and love to self express. I hope to one day soon be able to sell my designs once I have perfected them, but for now I just enjoy sharing them with others. Yarn is my guilty pleasure of choice... I began crocheting on November, 13 2009 and have been stitching up a storm ever since. I also love to make bouquets and arrangements out of false flowers, and love to scrapbook as well. I frequently go to Hobby Lobby and think... that is so cute... but I could make that for cheaper than they are selling it for. And so begins my life long obsession with crafting of all sorts. I hope you can be inspired by my musings or at least love to look at and read them. Other than crafting I enjoy fitness, fashion and blogging about my goals and dreams so you will also see a few things on here about that. Thanks for reading and I hope to get to know you through your comments. Sharlena
