Well I Don't Know How I Managed THAT!!!

Well I got a huge surprise/shock at the scale last night! Somehow I lost 4.5 lbs this last week! I honestly have no clue on how I did this. I know I did my best to eat within my daily points, and not eat too many of my weekly points. I also exercised, made it to the gym twice and ran at home. I think I also finally relaxed a little over this and stopped stressing out about my weigh ins. I know stress can make your body hold onto its weight, my body will let it go when it wants to. My goal for this week is to keep those 4.5lbs off, if I loose a little well that's a bonus. This means I am now 6lbs from my goal weight!

I'm back at the top secret project. Its progressing, but slowly working out really cuts into a girl's stitching time!

Since it is April 1st I suppose I should review my goals for March and set new ones for April!

March Re-cap
Stitch two ornaments - Only got one done
Finish top secret project - Nope!
Work on Paradigm Lost - Yup, and enjoyed it!

April Goals
Finish top secret project
Stitch three ornaments (one to make up for March)
Work on Paradigm Lost

Stitch Fair and Square rd. 12 (the last round I'll be participating in)


Since I can't share the top secret project, how about an updated picture of Paradigm Lost????

Amazing weight loss. I just heard the other night that strewss can hold your weight on you. Good for you to figure that out and sticking to it! I've been off my weight loss program, and...because of stress. I can't concentrate. I have to get back on the wagon.
PL is looking good!
