LE - I got a Singer Simple portable model. It has 18 stitches. It was sale for $99 so we got it as an early birthday present for me! =D

I'm pretty new to sewing and have a lot to learn, but it is SEW much fun. lol. The first thing I made on a sewing machine (my MIL's machine) was a giant stuffed animal for a friend (he'd found the pattern online and reeaaally wanted it). I learned a valuable lesson from that project: seam allowance! But it turned out okay even with mistakes. Here's a picture http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f1...MG_0622333.jpg

I want to learn how to alter my own clothing, and ultimately I want to get into doll making. But right now I plan to start with smaller projects like throw pillows and maybe an apron.

LE: you deserve a giant cheer for making it through one of those "struggling" days! How nice to be rewarded with a loss on the scale the next day!

Bunneh: hang in there through the PMS-iness. It stinks!

Bunneh - I love to sew too! I make everything - from slipcovers to my own panties & bras

Hope your day is a good one!

Hey Chicklets, I'm back home and feeling great. My body has apparently given me the okay to stop counting my calories, go ahead and eat more carbs every day, including cake and cookies, and skip a day or two of exercise, because I'm at 154.6 this morning, down 1.6 pounds from last Thursday when I left town! Still 2.4 pounds from my August goal, but I'm happy because I thought I would have gained for sure.

I'm back on my schedule, and eating more mindfully, but I am considering not being so anal about my calorie counting (it makes me nuts and crabby, anyway). I am still probably 10 pounds from my final goal, so I don't want to sabotage myself, but I'm thinking it will be good practice for maintenance.

LE: keep your eye on the prize, you're so close! Good for you for pushing through to get back on track. I'm struggling with carb cravings big time, and I find that protein helps satisfy that (and peanut butter, but I always want peanut butter).

Susiemartin: you're doing great! You make your own bras? Really? I am definitely impressed.

TheBunneh: I should get out the sewing machine and become more proficient with it. I would love to alter my clothes--I have some I love and am not ready to donate yet--especially the ones I never got to wear on my way down (well maybe for twenty minutes, before they were too big). I might have more time in the winter, and will hopefully have finished with my body alterations by then too!

My Michelle: good work--we've got a great inspiration group here, I have to agree.

dcapulet: I love boots. How exciting you get to wear some new this winter! 16s, here you come! Hope they don't fit for long, though! lol.

mommy 1028: welcome and good luck!

MsP: How'd the run go?

Have a great day everyone?

Another day of clean eating, yippee! Only 5 more days in August.

Tonight begins the weekend at our house. And weekends are always *hard*, so I'm battening down the hatches and getting ready for the crazy hurricane of food that is my husband's weekend style of eating. I've got my life vest on and and good solid plan for every meal, so I'm ready to face the deluge!

LouisaH: How incredible to go on a trip and return lighter than when you left! Congratulations!

LouisaH-Kinda bummed to report I'm still struggling with my knee. It's okay at first then about 4 miles in it starts to hurt and just gets worse slowly. I saw a PT ysterday and hope the exercises he gave me will help. My marathon is only 5 weeks away. I NEED to get in those high mileage days! Thanks for asking, btw.

I've been so busy with the getting ready for school stuff that I've hardly had time to be online at all. Food is okay, but not perfect. Exercise is touch and go with lower running miles and trying to make up some time doing walking or other exercise here and there. All in all, no complaints. Next month will be MUCH more focused and MUCH less chaotic, but I sure will miss the kids. School starts Sept. 1 here, so it'll be a new start for us all!

My TOM weight gain is gone (I'm assuming all of it) and I weighed 177.2 this morning. I still have a few days left to get to 176, and I'm sure gonna try!

It's Saturday, yay! Yesterday was OP for me, can't wait for my official Monday morning weigh-in. I've been peeking at the scale and I'm hoping to be three pounds down for the week.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

TheBunneh-YAY on making your goal!

I've been so disconnected here and wanted to just say a big CONGRATULATIONS to all those who've made their goals this month. Today I'm thrilled to say I was able to run 12 miles; my longest run since injuring my knee 3 weeks ago. It's a huge blessing to feel like I'm on the road to recovery and should still be able to pull off my marathon in 5 weeks. The run wasn't without pain, but, by the grace of God, I found a certain stride that lessened the pain to a manageable point. Food has been getting better and will continue to be worked on. Always a work in progress...
