Today I weighed myself. I weigh 217...down 2.5 pounds from the other day....so the scale is going in the right direction once again. I won't be satisfied though until I"m back down at 211 like I was a week or two ago. However, today that just seems unlikely. I'm HUNGRY today. I woke at four o'clock and just HAD to make breakfast then. Then of course by 10:30 I needed an English muffin. Half a pita and tuna for lunch....and at 3:00 crackers and cheese. I guess it's not terrible but it does seem like I"ve done a lot of eating today.
For dinner I'm making smoked tofu stirfry and brown rice....I can't wait for dinner. Maybe we will eat a little early....like 5:00.
YOu see? The hungries.
How will I lose weight like this? I need to munch on some veggies instead of crackers and cheese for one thing And I would have too....if I'd remembered those baby carrots in the fridge. I should do a drawing of some lonely forlorn veggies and stick it on my refrigerator. That would remind me not to neglect them. I think I will do that. Besides, it sounds like fun.
I've still been knitting and knitting and knitting. My daughter's shawl is coming along nicely....I'm hoping to have it done by Tuesday so I can block it at my friend's house that day. I just unpinned the hand towel I'd blocked and it came out lovely. Blocking really is worth the extra time.
So that's it ....the story of my life: Knitting and eating. Fortunately not at the same time so knitting keeps my fingers out of the proverbial cookie jar. Whatever works, right?
