KNITTERS-DELIGHT

I'm Still Here...and other Updates

Sorry for the long absence. I haven't been doing too much on the knitting front, since I started a second job to cover extra expenses. Unfortunately I strained my back and am now doing weekly Dr's appointments in addition to PT twice a week. Since I'm moving out of my current place the end of this month and have a trade show to go to in Arizona, this couldn't be any worse for timing.

Still - I found a place that I like and Tully is being very nice about things. After six years in a relationship, it's nice to know we can be amicable and even hang out as friends, especially since we’re sharing the same place right now.

In other news – today is Day 64 of eating raw food. I’ve lost over 22 pounds and am still pushing through. I’d like to lose 8-15 more. Once my back is strengthened, I’ll start exercising. Hopefully PT will help in this area. Here's a pic of me from a week ago (I've lost 3 more pounds since that pic).



I’ll try to get a move on my knitting so I have an FO to show.

Keep up the good work on the raw food tip, Sus. And thanks 1,000,000 for stopping by my baby blog. You've sent motivation though you probably weren't intending to.
