A human being has a natural desire
to have more of a good thing than he needs.
~ Mark Twain
Ain't that the truth?
I hope you ended your weekend feeling as though you'd had more of a good thing than you need; I sure did! I'm still tired from all the fun we had, which included a parade, a picnic, kite-flying and lots o' family time.
Amazingly, I've lost another half a pound, bringing the grand total for the year to … drumroll, please …
I know, not a big deal, laughable, really, but my husband can testify to the consistency of my calorie deficit. I'll take every half-pound loss I can get. I'm not suffering or starving, mind you, but I'm also not overindulging. Or even indulging on a regular basis. (I guess if you indulged on a regular basis, it wouldn't be indulging, would it?)
The thing about this long, slow loss pattern is that while I might bounce up or down a pound or two, I've managed to continue losing – and maintaining the loss – for seven months. I should be at goal about the time I qualify for Social Security. Heh.
I have just two more rounds on my knitting project, then the felting/fulling/whatever you prefer calling it, then I'll post the before-and-after photos. It took just a couple nights to knit. I have another one in mind and then I think I'll knit half a dozen and put them in the shop where I sell my felted tote bags. Or maybe I'll even open an etsy shop.
'Cause you can't get too much of a good thing.
