I've lost 10.5 pounds now. I hadn't cut out my dress yet, so I decided to measure. I'm glad I did. I was 5 inches bigger in the waist. I either read it wrong or wrote it down wrong, so I need to add another 1/2 inch to each seam as well!
If I wait another week, maybe I won't have to, but, I don't want to wait. I need clothes now and on the princess seam dress, I can take it in easily, I think. I'll not stitch the sleeves in the round and that will help taking in the side seams. I'm excited . Hopefully I'll get it cut out this week, the muslin, then the fabric. For this one I'm going to use a black ponte knit(the one with rayon in it, I just love the way it feels and drapes), then wear jackets and sweaters with it, until I look good enough in the style. I have the fabric, at least I think I have enough of the fabric. I'll have to check in my stash.
I have to finish replacing the lining of a coat this week as well. Busy week, Still haven't mastered the sleeping part of working nights, but I've got the eating and exercising down well.
Last weekend, since I was awake at night, I exercised between Friday and Monday evening, 10.25 hours (I think it was that). I have stationary pedals, and I'm sure they aren't as effective as a stationary bike, but they are helping because my blood sugars are 212 in the morning instead of 287-300. I'm taking less insulin all the way around.
This weekend I will have done 5.5 hours. Not as much, but 2.75 hours a day is not a bad thing. I'm happy with it. I'm starting to lose and I'm starting to lose inches.......what more could a girl want!
