Hello Everyone!!! Long-time Looker, First Time Poster!!! : )

I really Liked the idea of Crafting for my Resolution, which was to loose weight.
I decided to make a Wall Chart because
     A)I like to decorate my Walls
     B)I like to "See" my results
and
     C)Who dosen't like to show off results a bit?!  Wink

I wanted to make it all about Positive, so I chose Pretty colors, and the theme of a Princess because, well, what young lady isn't a princess?  Smiley


Here are my supplies:
Sky Blue Cotton
Peach, Pink, White and Grey Felt
Yellow Fabric paint
Glue


Here are my supplies laid out:


Here is a WIP. The big clouds are 10lb mark points.






And here is the Final Wall Chart!

The 10lb Markers each have a reward on them (I am all Pro-Reward : )   )
Here are the Markers:
10Lbs: Buy yourself a Cute Coat
20Lbs: Get a Mani-Pedi
30Lbs: Get A Flirty Swimsuit
40Lbs: Buy a "Baby" Skirt (I am a really big fan of Gothic Lolita Style, and my favorite brand is Baby the Star Shine Bright)
Then 50Lbs is my Goal, Which is the Castle

There are also two pockets on the chart, one says "Fun Facts" and the Other "Insperation".
Insperaton has Pictures of my favorite swimsuits and Cosplay's I want to do but feel "too Fat" to do
Fun Facts has, well, fun fitness and health facts
Here are some of the Facts

And here is a close up of the doll




Thanks for looking!!!

What a great idea - I'm actually longtime poster, first time dieter.  I need a wall chart.  Pretty cool with the rewards, too!

This is going to sound totally cheezy but this is really inspirational. I've been in the market to lose some weight for years (haven't we all) but I never had the motivation to actually Do anything about it. I might just steal this wall chart idea and make one of my own. If I have something thats really in my face about the whole thing I'll hopefully get off my rear and do something about it.

I love how you set yours up, really awesome idea. Thanks for sharing!

You should cut the princess' little hemline with each step, and when she's at 50lbs loss, she'd be rocking a fierce mini!

Great idea. How could you not want to get the princess to her castle?
The cuteness compels you to lose the weight!
