Weight Loss Check In

Ok, it is Tuesday already and I have not updated you about the progress of my weight loss. I weighed in at WW and lost 2 more pounds this week (by their scale). Then, yesterday, they measured me and compared my new measurements with the ones from when I began. I lost a total of 7.5" overall. Funny thing is that I lost 2 inches from my right thigh and 1.5 inches from my left thigh! I guess I am a little lopsided!!! LOL. Oh, I almost forgot, while I was doing the circuit tonight with PTM, a lady I knew from Curves started talking with us. Apparently she is a hand quilter. I have a really OLD project that needs to be finished and she volunteered to take it and finish it for me!!! I am going to let her do it too. I offered to pay her or piece something for her but she was not having it. I am going to pack it up in my car and hope I see her tomorrow!! She was one of the only reasons I kept going to Curves, as she worked there and was so nice to me.

Not much on the quilting front. I didn't do anything last night and tonight was a meeting at the church. I have trimmed up the string blocks I had from Saturday. I got a few more tonight. The progress on those is coming right along! Grace took the rest of the background and center strips home and some others are still out. I hope we may have them all back by next week. That means the quilt could be assembled and maybe to LTW by the end of the month!!

Quilting with the Canton Area Quilt Guild is tomorrow night and I am looking forward to going and working on my RPE redwork blocks.

Sorry no pictures tonight!! Maybe tomorrow. I hope you are all making great progress on your own quilts.
