Be the Tortoise
It seems odd to have the first weigh-in at the start of day three, rather than on day 7. I assume there is a good psychological reason for this, and is a good motivator to keep going. In two days, I'm down half a kilo. Happy with that. Only 47 point somethi...

Eating Better: Breakfasts
All of those so-called 'diet rules' I imposed on myself failed at one point or another. Because, as we all know, diets don't work.  No alcohol during the week? been having a cider most nights No white bread: that's all we seem to have in the house. No pasta...

I tend to do what Elspeth said, I get all mathematical with my swatch measurements and what the pattern calls for. Also worth checking out other projects with the weight yarn you've got to see what they did.

Survived
Friday was far more a struggle than I conveyed in my last post. On the inside, I felt like a three-year-old having an epic tantrum. Fighting my impulses, controlling them, saying no to myself. It was far from easy to get through. But I did, and now: I can d...

Quick update
Results confirm lump on leg is a tumour - but it's benign. Ugly and nothing to worry about. Yay-ish. Since I last wrote, I've been trying to pretend I'm not in as much pain as I find myself in. Driving for many hours to spend a wonderful weekend with Mr Pen...
