It's Actually Working
It's been about 6 weeks since I wrote about this book:
I purchased a copy of I Can Make You Thin by Paul McKenna (which includes a hypnosis CD). I also purchased a cheap MP3 player at the same time.
I've read about two thirds of the book and listened to the hypnosis MP3 almost every day since I got it.
Despite eating rather well, and celebrating birthday with copious amounts of cake, I have still been able to successfully lose 10 pounds. I actually lost five pounds in the first week, and either zero, one or two pounds in the subsequent weeks for a total of 10.
I am definitely going to keep doing this...I went from 208 pounds to 198, and it would be ideal if I could get down to 185 and just hover there for a decade or two.
I pushed myself to finish 10 additional rounds on the current lace project, and I honestly just didn't feel like pinning it down for a proper picture.
Regardless, I made it up to round 167 since Monday (which is very good given how many stitches are in each round, and I will continue to push myself till this piece is completed. I promise, I'll have better pictures in the future.
Thanks everyone for such nice birthday wishes...it turned out to be a wonderful opportunity to celebrate.
Also, Expat on the Go writes, "We're coming back to the US - and would like to go to Rhinebeck fair. I have seen that you have been there. Is it worth it? I have a 15 yo daughter and a 9 yo son - would they like it?"
Rhinebeck is definitely worth it for anyone that's obsessed with knitting, or spinning or any other fiber-related activity...especially if you've never been. As for whether your 9 and 15 year olds would like it, I have no idea. I know it's second nature for you to assess things based on your children, but it definitely isn't for me, so I'm never able to answer those kinds of questions. Any parents out there care to comment on this one?
Angel asks, "Did you know that Anna magazine is supposed to be publishing Neibling patterns for the next few months?"
I did...it's been all the buzz in the Niebling forums on Ravelry and YahooGroups...but thanks for thinking of me.
