Good luck with the diet and I hope your ankle gets better quick! My mom just 100 pounds over the course of two years or so and walks three miles every morning. I think using yarn as an incentive is a lovely idea...

Such a cute kitty... My kitties are staring at Arnold on the computer screen... and chasing the pointer!

Good luck with the knitt'in


There should be a lost before 100 pounds... whoops! Should have read it more carefully! :)


So you are saying, I should be sending you more yarn? Okay, that works. One thing that will help is to clean out the pantry. I know the boys won't like it. But instead of chips and such, keep fruit on hand. They will quickly learn to reach for it instead and so will you. I hope your ankle feels better soon. Of course, I would be out walking on it. But than I am the person who used to ran 2 miles on a sprained ankle. (Heavily taped of course!)


Woohoo, good luck with the dieting plan! I've been exercising and eating better since early February and am well on the way to my goal. I have to renew my license and couldn't bear the thought of telling them my weight had gone up x amount of lbs, heh. The first few weeks were rough with my body adjusting to eating less foods but once I got my appetite down and went down to lower calories foods, it has been mostly easy since. Now, it's just a waiting game ;)


Good luck with the weight loss Bron. I agree with you about the weight loss all boils down to eating less and exercising more. It is hard to do though!!! I have done the yo-yoing and decided I wasn't going to do that anymore so until I'm ready to make real lifestyle changes I'm staying like I am. I am feeling ready to make the plunge too, and try to eat healthier and fix healthier food for my family! I wish you the best of luck!


ooooooh, Arnold is shell-shocked at that pile of Landscape looks delicious!!


Thanks for the encouragement, Dani. :) Arnold jumps on the TV screen when birds appear. Good thing he's declawed!

Hehehe, Mia. The boys love eating fruit- it's their mother who needs a chip fix! Running on a taped sprain? Whew! You have a higher pain threshold than I do! And yes - the ankle's much better today, so it ended up not being too bad. :)

Good for you, Tiff! I know - I'm not looking forward to the next month, but once my body adjusts it'll be better. Just gotta keep my eye on the prize! Thanks for the encouragement. :)

Hi Beth - You're smart - it's such a huge step that you really have to be ready or it won't work. I thought I was before, but obviously I still had some issues to work through. Frankly, I want the weight off while my health is still really good 'cause I know if I wait, it'll just get harder & harder. Best of luck to you if you decide to go for it!

Jewels - I still don't know what the heck I'll make out of it, but I sure like looking at the Landscapes!


I think your plan is right on... I mean any diet works right? As long as you stick to it (hence why I am very, very much in need of a diet right now I can stick to, ahem). I also stress eat like crazy. But you sound very balanced and thoughtful about this, and that's awesome and I hope some of your inspiration can wear off on me!
