Thank you for all the supportive comments and suggestions. When you're totally lost, it makes such a difference that you all are kind enough, care enough to post some suggestions. Its truly a lifeline. So thank you. I took Jennyr's suggestion and drank a lot of water. I also, interestingly enough, ate A LOT over the last 2 days, didn't track a single calorie and this morning I'm back to 204.5. So, Gilly's suggestion to pig out also worked. Wierd! So strange. So I'm going back on calorie/nutrient tracking and exercising today. I'm going to break that 200 barrier! I'm so determined to make it, I don't care how long or how much running or calorie tracking - its going to happen!
Yesterday I finished BusyBee's sweater - but its too warm to wear it here except for maybe in the evening. I still need to block it (get it wet and and lay it out to dry after shaping it - it allows the yarn to 'bloom' and really finishes the garment). After I do that, I'll take some pics of BB modeling it. This sweater took me a few months to complete just b/c of the lack of time I have in my life! But I reached my goal of finishing by Easter! Its a lovely pale spring green and the yarn so beautiful. Its Debbie Bliss yarn - called Baby Cashmerino - my favorite. Anyway, here's a pick of it completed:
I CAN tell you that a small NSV that I've noticed is that my lacy underwear is fitting much better! LOL!!! I mean you know the front part on either side - usually my stomach roll makes that part stick out funny - but not anymore! Cotton undies- I never have that problem - but the nicer underwear with the lace embellishments - for some reason - fit well everywhere else (read: covered my ass just fine) but the front pieces on either side always rolled under my stomach.
I've got some cute Easter pics to upload later - having problems with them right now. Have a great Monday everyone!
