Do It Yourself

Okay...so I want a weighted vest for when I walk. I have read that it is good if you have osteoporosis in your spine. I went online and looked at the one that everyone in the forums I follow were suggesting and the thing is $75 plus $11 shipping. Uh.....no thanks. Here is what it looks like. I want the one that looks like a work out top....not the one that looks like a winter vest. It's almost summer. I want to be able to wear it under a t-shirt or even just by itself if I'm on the treadmill.

I happen to have a bunch of those little flat weights like she is dropping into the little pocket. Do you think if I bought a top like this one.....

and sewed strong pockets along the front and back for the weights.....I could make my own??? I think I could. This is an expensive top, but if I look, I'm sure I can find one for under $30 that would work.

I even have a few old pullover type work out tops that might work and then it would cost me nothing. Hmmmmm......What do you think?

As clever and industrious as you are I bet you can do it. It's worth a try. Have fun at the baby store!

I'm sure you can do it. You might even find something at a thrift shop that you could either use as is or take apart....go for it!

If you can sew, I'm sure you can do it!

If I wasn't already lugging around extra weight, I might consider one of those, they look like a great idea.

Good Luck!

Girl, I KNOW you could. You sound a lot like me - always up for a "I can do this myself a whole lot cheaper" challenge. I say do it. Let us know how it works out. BTW, I'd never heard of that. Thought about carrying weights on the treadmill, but I'm scared I'd lose my balance and fall! Yep - uncoordinated. :)

just wanted to say thank you for your kind words and well wishes this week. It meant more to me than you'll ever know. ;)
