|2017 to 2019|
Since March 21st, 2019, I've lost 35 pounds. I look younger now, at age 45, than I did two years ago and I feel younger as well. In 2017 we went to Disney World on vacation and I felt like it about killed me! By the end of each day my feet were swollen up like water balloons and I was in agony with every step.
We went on a beach vacation last week (7/2019) and each day we biked about 10 miles and walked at least 2 miles. We also went hiking, kayaking, swimming, deep sea fishing, and crab fishing. Not only could I keep up with the family, I actually did more kayaking and swimming than anyone else! Another thing I noticed is I did not get sunburned at all. Not one bit, even though I am still using my homemade sunscreen and Young Living sunscreen which is all natural and has an SPF of only about 10. This is the first beach vacation in my memory when no one got burned and I have to attribute it to our meat-heavy Keto (or what some people call "Keto Carnivore") diet. I've heard about that phenomenon but never experienced it!
I am on a mission to help as many of you as I can. This plan is easy but doing it isn't, I'll be honest. You will probably need to really reflect on your goals and willpower to push through it. You can find full details on my website. Best of luck! I hope to see you in the Facebook group!
Also on my website is a family-pleasing recipe to get you started: Keto Stuffed Shells. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

I was able to pick up a lot of new inventory and have some of it listed. I have some terrific brands like J. Crew, Joe's Jeans, and Vince Camuto, as well as some vintage fashion and European china. I am preparing several Coldwater Creek, Diane Gilman, and Liz Claiborne pieces for sale as well. I hope you'll stop by and pick up your favorites.
My weight loss journey with my new weight-loss coach's plan is going really well (see my last post for information). I actually lost a little more weight over vacation, meaning I lost nearly 20 pounds in the past month! My mother gave me some clothes to sell and I was able to keep a size M top that I liked and which fit me. Over Spring Break I wore a swim suit that hasn't fit for several years and by our beach vacation in July I hope to be able to buy a whole new suit for the trip.
With all the traveling back and forth to Raleigh I probably won't have much time for blog and newsletter posting in the near future. The best way to keep up is probably to follow my Instagram or Facebook; I'll try to update at least one of those daily. Thank you so much for reading my intermittent posts!

|The Saint Jack bag after restoration|
This week I've been hard at work restoring a rare Saint Jack of London fine leather handbag. This was an extreme makeover: the bag got a new lining, a new closure, repairs to the leather, and a complete cleaning and polishing, including to the brass hardware. The rarity and quality of this bag made it well worth the time to restore. This beautiful, timeless crossbody bag is now for sale in my shops on Poshmark, eBay, Mercari, and Depop. You can link to all my stores from my website, as well as find a step-by-step tutorial showing the restoration.
