Self Portrait... Song..and Goals

I took this portrait through an antique mirror I have in my hall..I love the old faded look of the mirror. I have been experimenting with lighting and shades of colors.

I have lost 45 pounds this past year.

Goal: I want to lose more by the end of next year...Not for vanity but to be healthy.

Goal: To blog everyday..and to visit my friends on blog everyday or at least a couple of times a week

Prizes for Goal setting: If you leave a comment your name will be added in. I will draw names at the end of the month.

Back to prizes: Quilt top, cookbook, material, tea cups...There is more..I will get pictures added soon.

Love Nita

I'm so ashamed, I tried to lose 10lbs. without success, I have walked over a 100 miles though. How wonderful for you. I love your goals list.

hoping you feel the beauty that you are showing, dear nita......and that you continue to reach your goals.....a brand new blank canvas before us, no?

I have missed you so much, sorry for not getting back sooner, but we got more bad news last week, my husbands mother has bowel cancer!! I love the new look, your looking good darling!! and how have you lost the weight?? please tell, I need help in that department. I feel so alone after losing my only brother, I know I have Mom and my family, but I could talk to my brother about anything any time, mainly about Mom, if she would upset me, or made me giggle, or did something that she wouldnt want anyone to know about, like embarrassed herself, I would call him, and now I have no one who truly understands or understood.
