Which is fine, really. Slow and steady and all that. I wrote to eDiets Monday, whining about only losing five pounds for the month and detailing how much I'd worked out and how little I'd eaten. I got the reply I expected: I should eat between 1300 and 1400 calories per day and I should be happy to lose at a moderate rate.
It would be interesting, though, to be admitted to some kind of spa or hospital or mental institution where my caloric intake is controlled and prescribed, just to see what happens. You know, as an experiment.
The knitting progresses! I'm still waiting for FLAK, The Next Installment, and in the meantime am ready to begin the neck/shoulder shaping on Optically Delusional. Calling it "neck/shoulder shaping" is kind of silly, really. I will be decreasing at the edges and in the center to continue the diagonal design and create a rectangle that is about 28" wide and 26" long. That sounds really wide, I know, but it's a swingy, kimono-style jacket and it's supposed to be roomy.
I'd like to think, anyway, that 56" total circumference is too wide for my hips. It is, after all, called Optically Delusional.
