I’m 20 Again!

Who says you can’t turn back the clock?
No, I’m not in my 20’s again. I’m 20 pounds lighter! That’s right, I hit the big two oh today! I must have stepped on the scale a dozen times, expecting it to change. To be teasing me.
I don’t think I can properly express my excitement at hitting this mark. I go on and off the diet, although only allowing myself to gain back a few during my off periods. But for some reason every time I’d hit 19 – even 19.5 – it just wouldn’t push to 20. Getting stuck at that mark was frustrating and eventually I’d say screw it, I’m going off for a while. Yesterday I decided to try and kick start it a bit and went for a bike ride. I haven’t gone riding at all this year. I didn’t go that far – 10 or 11 miles – but I think it’s what did the trick. I’m going to try to go 3 times a week. I’ve even starting charting my mileage and time to see how I’m progressing.
This sudden burst of good diet luck has also made me rethink a knitting project I just started about a week ago. I haven’t posted about it yet because it’s in the round and is slow going. But I think I may just put it aside until I see if I can really lose some more before I decide on a size. Ideally I’d like to lose probably another 20 or 30 (depending on how I look) so guessing on a size right now is virtually impossible.
I have quite a few gifts to make in the coming months anyway (Philly Knitters Secret Pal, my sister-in-law’s bday gift), so maybe I’ll just stick with socks, gloves and bags for me.

  1. Way to go on the 20 lbs. I keep thinking about the sizing thing as well in the hopes that I will continue with more weight loss success. I think the fall will bring some baggy projects for me that I won’t be too concerned about the size…. ie. comfortable and not fitted.

  2. WOW!!! Mega congrats! You must be walkin on air. I am inspired as over the past 6 months I’ve turned into total flabola. Truly disgusted with my body tone right now and not fitting in to my clothes much either. A bike ride a few times a week sounds like a plan.
    You go girl. It can only help our knitting with more energy and a smile on our faces!

  3. You go Girl!!! I’ve been riding my bike to work and have noticed big changes. I love riding it’s more fun than worrying about the weight!
