An oopsie followed by more success!

Posted on: April 16, 2010

Firstly let’s deal with the Oopsie.  You might have got the impression from my last post that the Weight Watchers was not going well – this was confirmed by my weigh in.  I put on 2lbs.  This did not make Sarah a happy bunny.  I knew it was going to happen, I expected it when I got to the scales, hell, I even told my leader that I had put on just before she weighed me, but when I saw the little figures flash up and then when my leader put my gained 2lbs in a little circle on my card, I was distraught!

The thing that works for me with Weight Watchers is the fact that I have to go to a complete stranger to get weighed.  I am not overly fond of this practice and I am even less fond of going if said person is going to say ‘well, yup, we know someone ain’t been good – get off the scales yer fat heffer’ 

*not that my leader really talks like that.  She is a lovely lady who is full of concern if I’m not happy*

I really begrudge spending £17.95 of my hard earned cash for someone to tell me I’m fat – I can do that to my self perfectly well for *free*.  So if I have to spend £17.95 of my hard earned cash, I darn well better be getting some good news from it once a week.

So this week I have almost religously stuck to my points, I have written down every morsel of food stuffs that has crossed my lips (even ketchup!?!) and I think it is paying off.  Remember the jeans that mum brought me for Christmas?  Well this morning I had to go and buy a belt for them!  Else I would have flashed my butt right the way across campus (and that does not bode well for a paying job, not even mentioning paying £17.95 for Weight Watchers).  I wore these jeans last week and they were not this loose.  I have had a sneaky go on the scales, but I’m not saying anything until my official weigh in on Monday, but I think it is going to be a good un next week.

I have also had other success – the ipod cosy that I made last week, it has sold.  It is currently winging it’s way across the pond to the USA.  I hope cosy and owner have a long and happy life together.  In that vein, I have started another, this one a stripey one.  A few more stripes and it should be finished, so watch out for it in the store.

I might make a couple more to go in there – goodness knows it will help with stash reduction!

I have also finished another UFO – Bev’s Veg Hammock is off the hook.

Bev is happy with it, it seems functional and it looks pretty.  I’m going to try this netting pattern with something else over the weekend, I’ll let you know how it progresses.

This leaves me now with 6 UFO’s.  I don’t think I will be keeping up the same pace as with the others.  The ones I have left have got much less progression and 3 of them are lace projects, but as long as I work on them one at a time I’m sure to have them finished soon.  The next one is going to be the jumper as this has the most progress on it.  Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will have put a couple of hours progress on it – the weekend is going to be another busy one though, so I’m not holding my breath.

This weekend I’m going to Spinning Guild and get to play with the spinning wheels – fingers crossed I will be able to reserve one to make it mine!

I think that’s long enough for this post!
