Catching Up

I keep telling myself that I need to come blog but life jumps up and gets in the way time and again. I’m doing okay. I had what could have been a huge emotional setback this week and I handled it very well, all things considered. I think that’s progress.

I’ve been exercising and eating better and I can actually see results! I am down 12 pounds since January 1, 2007 and down 29 pounds since June 2006…. and keep in mind that I wasn’t exercising or eating well or doing much of anything beyond survival for the majority of the summer and fall. Not too shabby I don’t think. I am down 2 sizes in clothes. I had to buy new jeans because my old ones were falling off me… what a wonderful feeling!  I actually look thinner, which is such a treat for me. 🙂

I have been knitting but not as much as I could be. Mostly socks, mostly for me. I did start a sweater for me but have now lost enough weight and inches that it will be too big so I need to rip and redo (this is not a bad thing, but it does make the motivation to restart the sweater kind of wane). I’m 75% done with Addah’s Oh Jan dress. Pictures to come… promise!

I’m organizing pictures this morning, looking at old baby pictures of my girls… feeling nostalgic. I’ll likely back-date a few posts to play catch up and post some pics. 🙂
