Shifting Gears...

Like many others, I am becoming increasingly drawn to the "make do and mend" movement. In addition to my works in progress (knitting and crochet), I have an ever-growing pile of mending I need to get through. I am not an expert seamstress and however competent I become through practice of sewing, it won't be "my thing" like knitting and crochet. So to give myself the freedom to talk about mending/sewing and other crafts (in addition to crochet and knitting), I have decided to remove myself from all but one knitting blog rings. My blog, which I have become very lazy about updating, wasn't seeing a great deal of traffic anyway so quitting the blog rings doesn't feel like such a big deal.

Another issue I wanted to share is my need to make wearables for myself. However, I am also working within the confines of my stash, so I have come to the conclusion (AGAIN) that I really need to lose some weight! The smaller I get, the less yardage it will take to make a garment and the further my yarn will go. Sounds good, huh? Too bad I can't just wiggle my nose and blink my eyes to make it happen. *sigh* From time to time I may share my dieting progress but I reserve the right not to share my starting or goal weight :p

More soon...

There are people like me who lurk blogs and never leave comments. I can count on one hand the number of blogs I've left comments.

Dr. OZ said the difference between an overweight person and a thin person is only 100 calories a day. That doesn't sound like a lot but over 365 days it really adds up.

Every once in a while I remember to eat 100 calories less per day and then I lose a pound a week. His advice really does work.

I used to weigh 242 and now I weigh about 190.
