Well the big loss the first week was more of a water weight, shed the easy excess kind of thing that usually happens to me when I start diets. This week: 0 Pounds lost!! I didn't fair as well, but evened out it's not all bad. A week doesn't begin to matter when changing habits. Habits are formed over lifetimes...or certainly more than a week.
I did learn a few things this week. Don't eat beans and franks anymore! Hubby loves nothing more than eating a whole can of Bush's baked beans with buttered rolls for dinner. We used to eat these all the time with hot dogs and loads of onion. So I tried some, adding my hot dogs separately. WOW! I think I gained 4 pounds the next day. Never again. I also don't weight myself every day like I used to in the old days. Twice a week, that's it. Usually on Monday for this post and again on Thursday or so. It keeps you from getting disappointed with the ups and downs that will naturally occur. Keep up the good work ladies!
Onto other things, I went by Barnes& Nobel this morning to get my new QuiltMania magazine. Darn thing is not in yet, so I bought last months and a couple new books to read! I used to read voraciously before I started quilting, but ever since them I always feel like I'm cheating on the sewing when I do something else! Isn't that weird? These are some of my favorite mystery books to read. PLUS, they have the BEST cookie recipes in them. (close your ears Sharon) I'm going to start making time to read again during the week if it kills me. But not until my new quilt is done and quilted.
Then I stopped by the LQS after to pick up 2 new rulers...Creative Grid rulers, my favorites. I hate those lines covered with fat yellow blobs, so I order two new ones. 15.5" sq and a 10.5" sq. Those will do everything I need, especially for this quilt that's almost finished. It seems to be taking forever to get done!! Why does it seem like January goes in slow motion? My top is taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r. I have one more row to make of the blocks, and then applique on about 2 rows. Since this quilt has both I don't have another project getting completed along side it to show you any pictures. Sorry. Soon though I promise!
