Inspired by the rich gold and black of Dolce and Gabbana’s A/W 2012 collection, I saw this fabric and knew it was meant to be. Just finished over Thanksgiving weekend, it’s been a great relief since I haven’t sewn anything this ambitious in a long time.
So the other side of the changeable cover (that ISN’T Mako and Rin…)
Oh hi there Rin…
OH HI THERE RIN….
I have never wanted to be a piece of animated cloth in my life more than I do now…
So I’m new to tumblr/fitblr so I thought I would introduce myself.
My name is Kaitlyn, I’m 24, I’ve been heavy my entire life. I am around 6 feet tall and have been over 200 lbs most of my teen years. I thought it was just my “genetics” or i was just big boned. I thought being healthy or jn shape was impossible. I put on a happy mask as the girl known for being fat with a pretty face. The heaviest I ever remember being was in the 230’s and wore a size 20. December 2012 after countless crash diets, fad diets, yoyo diets I decided I was going to actually lose weight the healthy way and that I wasn’t going to scare myself by thinking I might not make it. So I started lifting weights, doing cardio and eating right. I lost fifty pounds around the fall of 2013! I got comfortable and started eating ‘badly’ more and more. This year I am committed to making my body exactly what I want it to be, in a healthy way. I will have bad days, I will have good days. But I will never shame my body.
211+ vs 160
Size 18 vs size 6
Starting is hard. Starting a blog is hard. Starting to exercise is hard. Starting to eat right is hard. You know what’s even harder? Sticking with it.
In 6 months, I lost 60lbs. I ate right and worked out. Once I got going, it wasn’t so hard anymore. Now, I need to keep it up. I need to stick with it and continue to live a healthier life. I’m hoping that writing about it, and with any luck inspiring others will help keep me motivated.
