Ugh - weight loss. It's a never-ending thing, isn't it? I need to get on board with your making a list of ways to keep it off. Good luck to you!


I was skinny until after menopause. I don’t eat a lot of treats but I do like my food. I started doing 30 minutes of cardio/ walking every day. My blood pressure and cholesterol have dropped and I’ve lost 14 pounds but it took FOREVER! The holidays were bad for me too. Too many cookies, I guess. Good luck! My doctor recommends a Mediterranean diet….

That fabric slant would not bother me at all. Don’t you think it will “quilt out “? However, if it bothers you by all means make the corrections.


I think your quilt top looks great and the blocks that are "off" are really not noticeable to me. I am lucky that my weight is generally really stable. I had surgical menopause at age 29 (now am 67) and on hormonal replacement since then, but my weight has never been an issue. Since I retired, I do go to Pilates at least three times a week, to maintain strength, flexibility, and balance. I generally only eat two meals a day, breakfast and lunch/dinner around 4 pm. If I snack later, it is usually a piece of fruit or popcorn (No butter). It sounds like you have a good plan to knock off those few unwanted pounds!!


I'd probably be ripping today, too. That would make me crazy & I'd know, whether anyone else noticed or not! I bake for a couple of weeks after Thanksgiving & freeze those cookies immediately! Once it's time to deliver they're out of the house so I do avoid eating them. However, in addition to holiday meals, January brought some birthday celebration dinners that contributed to additional weight gain! 🙄


oh,man. those blocks would make me crazy too. I baked a lot during the pandemic but only put on 8 lbs during that time.

not sure why it wasn't a lot more. however, it took a solid year to lose the 8 lbs. goes on quickly. comes off slowly. :(

I eat baked pretzels or almonds for an evening snack. I'd rather have a brownie but...


I agree, I'd be recutting those pieces. That would be all I'd see when I looked at the quilt.
Weight%&*×##! During pandemic, my mother's death and the holidays, I've gained weight. I hate it!
