Almost to 20 pounds! 20 pounds is going to sound so much more substantial. It’s definitely a motivator to keep going.
Today I was checking out Hesira who told me to go check out Susan. So I did. O always do what she tells me whether she knows it or not. Anyway, Susan was talking about the Dove Real Beauty campaign. I watched the little video and was quite surprised. I mean, I knew that they used touch up software to get rid of pimples and cellulite but I had no idea that they actually change the shape of someones body for advertising. It’s … appalling? rude? ridiculous? I don’t have an appropriate word to describe my feelings.
Honestly, this is beauty to me. Me and my darlin‘.
My face is a little thinner now but I still feel the same happiness with him as I did at Thanksgiving or the one before that, or the one before that…
The weight loss that is happening around here is for my health. Of course I feel cuter in my clothes but my current goal weight is 150. Not skinny by any means. I have a huge amount of Diabetes in my family on my mother’s side and I’m very nervous about it. I was diabetic with both of the little kids pregnancies so I definitely have to get this eating under control.
In other news, I have no new pictures for you because even though I have been snapping pictures right and left – even of Maggie’s birthday party – I neglected to put the memory card back into the camera a week ago.
I got the new Lace Addis in the shop. I haven’t knit anything with them yet but the cables are very flexible, the joins are soooo smooth and the points are fab. In addition, I love that they have a gold color to them. So far I only have the 24 inch length because I didn’t want to get all invested if I didn’t like them but I’ll definitely be ordering more. I also have the Naturas for those who don’t prefer metal. They are also nice but the smallest they come is a US2.
I’ve begun work on the Handweavers Guild of America Certificate of Excellence in Handspinning. There will be evaluations this year and the next time will be in 2009. I came up with a working schedule that I think is achievable and it will take me until April of 2009 to complete all of the work. At that point, I can reevaluate the early work and redo what is necessary. I’m a little nervous about it and the rules of packaging and presentation alone can be quite overwhelming. No matter what happens this work can only make me a better spinning teacher because it will cause me to stop and break things down into parts and learn how to communicate the things I know.
Tomorrow is my needlefelting workshop with Shelly Lampshire. I am quite excited!!
Better get to bed so I can be well rested and cheerful.
