Perseverance

or just plain stubbornness - pays off - and it seems for me that 10 times is the charmed number for beginning a project. I started the second ball of yarn tonight -- and I am a very happy camper - I may actually have this done before the Knitters Review Retreat. YIPPEE!!

Second piece of good news - if you scroll to the end of my blog you will see that I have been doing Weight Watchers ----- as as of this morning I am down 15.4 lbs. Many many more to to (in fact a whole adult person) but I am looking at this as a two year project and then a lifelong program so I will make it - sloooowwwly (because after all what do I do that isn't slow anyway) and somewhat patiently. I am doing it in little 5 lb increments because if I tried to look at the whole number it would scare me to death. But I can't wait to hit that 20 lb mark - then it seems that you are really on the way and really serious in your determination. So at every 5 lb mark you all will hear me shouting with glee and you will see the little ticker go up in amount lost.

Well DONE that girl! It worked, it worked, and now you know for the future that nothing is really too difficult (well, maybe Alice Starmore, but otherwise nothing!)

And you're absolutely right to take it slow and easy on the Weight Watchers. To try the top model thing of shrinking instantly is downright dangerous.

Wish I could be at Knitters Review Retreat with you...

Good for you, both knitting and your weight loss program! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you as I know how hard it can be, but your choice of WW is very wise - it's good to loose a bit over a longer period of time.
And thank you for your comment on my Belle! *^v^*

I know how hard you've been working on the shawl and the weight loss.

You're on your way! It's great to have some momentum behind you. I think that's what the first 20 lb. loss gives you...momentum to keep pushing forward and a sense of well-earned accomplishment.

I can't wait to see the pics of your shawl.:-)

Good work Kiddo!

Congratulations on the weight loss! And yeah, I'll start a project a million times, too. You are not alone.
