April Weigh-In and TW Update

One weeks worth of progress on The 12 days of Christmas - Day Six - by Teresa Wentzler. I have this funny feeling it's going to be a close one come December, as I don't think I'll get this project finished. I just can't seem to focus working on it. Maybe it's just the fabric count of 28 I don't like.  Sorry for the blurry pictures of my digital camera.  Next time I promise to use my scanner for update pictures.

As for my first of the month Weight-In, I haven't been getting on the tread mill every weekday like I promised myself I would. I just don't seem to have any ambition, that and feeling tired from lack of sleep because my back and hips hurt all the time now. Just walking 6 blocks round trip to the convenience store gets my hips to hurting. I've been trying to compensate for the lack of activity by cutting back on when and how much I eat. I seem to be leveling out at 222 lbs. and keeping 1 lb off is pretty good in my book. All I can do is keep trying. I lost it before, I can do it again.

Until next time... Keep on stitch'n

I feel for you, it's so hard to lose weight! I'm always watching what I'm eating & like you I have hips issues. It runs in the family & they all had surgery to have prostetic ones.... I'm too young so have to wait.... Lovely progress on your stitching too :)

Great progress! Maybe it's all that brown. I always seem to lag in my stitching when I'm not into the colors.

TW's just take time, and over one at that? Probably will take for ever.

Weight loss is a lifetime struggle! I'm currently in a 40lb relapse myself and I keep starting over, I figure it'll eventually stick... someday. I agree its also hard to be active when you hurt I have foot/ankle issues and hurt all the time too.

I've started bogging on a separate blog about my trials and tribulations about dealing with my weight loss (or lack there of lately)
