PITA!!!! Well, at least that's the name she came with. I'm still deciding on a different name for her, so she won't remain Pita forever. :)
Pita is a Karito Kids doll. She's 21" tall, so she's taller and narrower than an American Girl or other comparable 18" dolls. I'm planning on doing another doll comparison post down the road to show you the differences. Pita has vinyl arms, legs, and a vinyl head. Like my Maggie doll, she also has a vinyl chest plate and cloth body.
Since I've had such an issue with this, I thought if I had a "dangling carrot", so to speak, it might help to motivate me. So, here's my brilliant plan. :) Pita is going to go live at my mom's house. I will not be allowed to bring her home until I've lost a certain amount of weight. Right now, I'm debating between 10 and 15 pounds. I don't want to make the challenge too hard, but I don't want to make it too easy, either. At this point, I'm leaning towards the 15.
