Dollar Tree Dieting

 This was me last May, 215 pounds, a size 2X, and really ready for some changes.
This is me now, 145 pounds and a size 12.
 And stuck.
 I have 15 pounds left, and I seem to be stuck.
Did I mention stuck?
When you have a goal, sometimes a visual is handy, 
and I found one on Pintrest that I fell in love with.
 This is an easy one. You'll need:
Rubber bands
2 Dollar Tree vases
A bag of Dollar Tree marbles 
Stick on letters
Scrapbooking stickers that correspond with your goal 
My goal is a new bathing suit!

 Put the rubber bands around the vases as a guide for your letters to keep them neat and straight.
 Press your message on the vases. Mine say
Pounds To Go
Pounds Lost.
 Add embellishments.

In Pounds Lost, I added 70 marbles to represent the butt I no longer haul behind me.
 In Pounds To Go, I counted out 15 more marbles.
I'm hoping for an empty Pounds To Go vase in 2 months.

 Will the visual help?
These suckers need to MOVE IT.
I have my eye on the perfect black one piece at Target.

Oh, you will be mine...

Sunny that is the most awesome news (and creation) I've seen/heard in ages!!!! Congratulations and way to stay motivated!! Now if I can only adapt your inspiration to my current paper hoarding "issues"... Off to the craft room to see how I can use your success to help myself (putting on superhero cape and dashing off). :)
