Actually, there are two small victories. One, I’ve lost 3 pounds. I know . . I can gain 10 before dark but losing 3 is good. Not drinking 4 or more Dr. Peppers a day would result in losing weight even if we weren’t eating better . . but we are eating better. Just losing 3 pounds feels good. I figure I’ll lose 5 – 7 pounds the first week because of cutting out bread, junk food and Dr. Pepper but then it will taper off and I’ll be happy to lose 1 – 2 pounds per week.
But the real victory came yesterday when one of my
friends enablers wrote me to ask if I was going to participate in the Eat, Sleep, Knit challenge. I was and then I wasn’t and then I was and then I wasn’t and then I went and put one skein of Bugga in my cart to make a challenge project and then . . darn it . . I needed free shipping so more stuff hopped into my cart and this is what I was looking at:
So, then I said to myself .. you cannot do this so I went outside and walked around out back for a little while, cleared my head and deleted the sweater quantity of yarn and kept in the 1 skein of Bugga and then I said . . no . . not gonna do that either so I closed out the cart and bought nothing. I’m skipping the challenge. I’m already doing The Loopy Ewe challenge, have two sweaters started so I don’t need any more projects and I don’t need any more yarn and . . I feel good about it!
