So, this is a good news/bad news kind of week.  Good news, I didn’t gain any weight, but I didn’t loose any either.  Holding steady at 223.  I ate pretty badly this week, I only stayed at my calorie goal 3 days, and have done a lot less walking due to really poor weather, and of course crocheting non- stop.

So, while I am a little disappointed in myself for not doing good this past week, I know I can (and will) improve for next week.  At least staying the same weight gets me a nice off white round on my blanket!

I am only 6 points away from a yarn order from woolwarehouse, so I am pretty determined to succeed this week.  The way my points work is

  • I get 1 point for tracking everything I eat and staying under my calorie goal.
  • I get 1 point per pound lost on Friday morning (compared to the previous week) – partial pounds don’t count.
  • I loose points if I gain weight, to a maximum of the points earned that week.

So far, as a rewards system, its been doing a good job.  Plus, eating good all week, just to be allowed to go out for all you can eat sushi is kinda counter productive.  Yarn as a reward is much, much more tasty anyways.


I am using Red Heart Soft, in 4 colors for my blanket.

  • teal for weight loss of 2 lbs or more
  • deep sea for weight loss of 0.5 lbs – 1.5 lbs
  • off white if my weight stays the same
  • charcoal if I gain weight

I started with Esme’s Winter Cottage by Dedri Uys, and continued to grow the square with the ATB CAL.

Since my weight stayed the same (within .5 lbs), I did round 34 of ATB CAL in off white.  It was a simple round of (hdc, ch 1, sk 1), and very enjoyable to work on.

Here is hoping I can do well again this week and shave off a few more pounds.
