I'm nearly done with the back of Optically Delusional. At this point you're basically binding off one stitch at each end of each right-side row, to keep the diagonal lines going but create a straight edge at the top. It's as big as a baby blanket! Well, not quite, but it's seriously heavy. And turning it at the end of each row, with two balls of yarn and the ends from previous balls of yarn is making a mess! I know to turn one direction and then the opposite direction, and that's working pretty well, but I still have to remember to take my needle under the yarn or it gets tangled. And these balls of yarn are not nice, neat little center-pull balls. They are deceptive, in that they look like nice neat little center-pull balls, but when you fish around in the center for the beginning of the yarn, you pull out a glob of yarn that then further tangles as you work away. Right now I have 104 stitches and I'm working my way down to two.
Got lots of outside walking type exercise done, but nothing else. I walked 3.5 miles mid-morning, and then when the well repairmen came I walked back from the job site about a mile. Stayed on the eating plan yesterday, too.
And my weight stayed the same. I really wish this food log didn't require a daily weigh-in. I know I thought it was a Good Thing to weigh myself every day, but it's more discouraging than I thought it would be. Maybe I'll just put the same weight in every day in order to get a new log page to fill out, but only put the real weight in on Mondays.
One of my friends has already sent a very supportive message about my not eating enough calories. Okay, okay! I'll give it a shot. And you'll be the first to get my undying gratitude when I show a decent loss for the month of February!
Of course, it'll be all your fault if I gain. Fair warning ... heheheh.
