WIP Wednesday And Day 10

31 days to crafts show

Two Years ago, I lost 40 pounds. Zumba helped. Running helped. Weight Watchers helped. But what helped the most was tracking! I tracked everything I ate, I tracked my weight loss, I tracked how many inches I lost. I love seeing my numbers shrink. I once read that if you want to see success about something, you should track it.

On the day 10, Molly discussed about tracking inventory. I’ve seen first hand how important tracking something is.

So adding to my inventory I’m working on…

I’m up to four dish cloths now.

A doll. She’s coming along. I wish the picture came out better.


And my son wanted to me make him a blanket based on his high school colors!

    Wow, I lost 35 pounds last year, and I did the same thing – I kept track of everything! It really helped, and now I can go back and look at how far I’ve come! I wish I could be as vigilant about recording my knitstuffs!

    You are right! Tracking progress is so motivating! I love to draw little thermometer-like charts and put color to mark my way towards my objective. It’s like scratching things off a to-do list.
    And congratulations on the weight loss. It is really difficult to do. A great achievement!!

    Everything looks wonderful!
    I try to keep track of what I eat. It really does help make me more conscience of what I put in my mouth. I should keep better track of my knitting…

    I lost 70 pounds 3 years ago and am back to losing more. Tracking DEFINITELY helps!

    All your projects (and boy are there a LOT!) look great.
