CollyMP's Journal, 20 April 2013

Oh my WORD-I have had some problems getting online today! Just couldn't seem to get here! Bella, I haven't forgotten you dear one, and I am SO sorry that I didn't get back to you yet. Please forgive me?

I went to Lowe's AND Home Depot. Again. With Credit Cards in Hand. Seriously, someone needs to stop me.

I have officially lost SIXTEEN POUNDS! LOL! I know, comparatively speaking that's pretty much a non-starter, but I'm excited about it. It's about 25% of the total amount of weight I need to lose. I feel pretty good about being 25% further down that path than I was 2 months ago!

I have made two boxer shorts for my son and worked on a blouse today. (mostly transferred markings from the pattern to the fabric for a blouse-geez this thing is fiddly!) Then of course once I really got somewhere with the blouse I ran out of the right color thread. Sigh.
I feel good for finally getting into my sewing room and using it for its intended purpose.

I am exhausted, but so jazzed about all I did today I don't know if I can sleep! I felt like I truly had a productive day, rather than a day spent reacting to things and running behind, like I spend most weekends.

Hey lady! I was wondering where you were lol. Congrats on the weight loss. That's awesome. It sounds like you've been very busy woman today. I'm glad you're in such a great mood :)

Not to worry my slender little friend! Congrats on the 16lbs/25% :-) You're a rock star!

Aw thanks Bella! You're probably feeling a lot better and have solved the issues to your satisfaction by now anyway, haven't you? I'm still going to feel terribly guilty for being such a bad friend. @Lisa-I AM in a great mood this weekend, and I'm down another pound today! 17.2 pounds off, 16 to go to my first weight loss goal!

AWESOME!!! You GO GIRL!!! So proud of you for your weight loss and your taking back your sewing room and being productive. I know that when you don't feel that then you get down on yourself. HUGS

Thanks so much sweetheart! You're so right-I don't see it, when I do that, but if I make a conscious effort to really pay attention to how I feel, that's exactly it. If I don't sew, if I don't feel productive, it just ruins my day. I NEED that feeling of accomplishment. I think a lot of other people do as well.

Yes, many do but there are so many that don't care if they are or not. You've always been the productive type and you need that. It's who you are and yes, I've always seen that about you. It's more in your sewing and creating things than the garden but in the summer/spring months it's all about your garden and making it beautiful and a place you enjoy and most of all that it something you created and you're proud of.

LOL-that's a REALLY nice, sweet, kind way of saying "girl, you have got the fidgets!" 
22 Apr 13 by member: CollyMP
Nope, you don't have the 'fidgets'. You have the mind set that every day there are things you see and want to accomplish. YOU actually try and get them done. Most don't. When you aren't able to accomplish what you set your mind to you get down about it and give yourself grief over it. hence, you feel depressed about it. You're a go getter. There is NOTHING wrong with that. I love that about you! It's one of many things I love about you!
