Progress photos

It simply amazes me how busy I am now that this trip is over. Anyway, I finally got around to taking February's progress picture and then making the January-to-February comparison photo. Ta da!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know … le même vieux, mêmes vieux [I'm typing that with a French accent.]

Mr. Shrinking Knitter says my face looks thinner, but I think he's just trying to be nice to me. Now that he's home all the time, and can actually see the effort I put into this old weight-loss project, he realizes exactly how frustrating it is for me. When he was working out of town, he said he knew how hard it was, but he didn't really. So his saying nice things is good. Whether he means it, for real, for real, or not.

Due to the absolutely lovely weather we had yesterday, the Garmin got its inaugural run. We did 3.5 miles at an 11:54 pace. Total time: 41:45. I'm delighted with this new toy, especially the little map that shows up when I download the data to my computer. How cool is that? But even a fun new toy couldn't get me to run any faster than I did. Lots o' walking breaks. It was fun to be outside, though. Might get to do it again today, if I run between the raindrops.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, here's an online candy heart generator that will let you write an entire sentence, spread out over three hearts. Be sure to scroll down to see the candy they're selling, as well. What a hoot!

Hope your weekend is full of fun. Back on Monday.

Your yoga pants look looser and you have waist definition.

Looking good Debbi.

I think you look great, girl.

Cool, I didn't know you had a new Garmin. That's a super pace, esp. if you took walk breaks. I found when I got my Garmin that I was running faster than I realized....the walk breaks just make the min/mile slower. You know what I mean.

The weather here has been gorgeous too. I'm so bummed I'm sick and can't run out there. Darn it. Ah, well. Spring is on the way and I'll have more chances, right?

Enjoy your weekend.

I do think your face is thinner so it's not just Mr SK. It's great, though, that he understands better just how frustrating all the weight loss stuff is. And no only does he see it, he says something, too. Even better!

Love that you're enjoying the Garmin and had the chance to enjoy being outside without icky weather.

Celebrate the husband who says nice things - even if they are only to be nice - which is not true in this case!

Glad you got a Garmin. Fun, huh?
