I'm still here

Ya, I'm still here. I have been busy playing an online game called World of Warcraft. It's an RPG game that I have found very addicting. But it has helped me work through some things in my life. Unfortunately I haven't been doing very much stitching or any other crafting. But true to my nature the craving to play the game has died down and I have started working on a couple of projects again. I went through my WIP boxes and put aside the projects I want to work on. I have started a kind of cute little project by Janlynn that says "Chocolate makes my day." It is a project that I would normally be too cutsie for me, but for some reason I like it.

I started it today and got a chocolate chip and part of the heart done. I am stitching it on 28 count linen that I had dyed myself. I just hope that the pink in the project doesn't get lost in the pink fabric.

I have also started knitting a pair of socks, but you can see my progress on that in my knitting blog.

I have also been loosing weight. My doctor put me on some diet pills because he was worried about me getting diabetes. Here are some pictures of what I look like. . .

This is me at 350 lbs when I started....

And again at's starting to show...mostly in my face.

And this was taken about a week ago. I haven't been weighed in a while, so I couldn't tell you. In addition to the pills, I have been watching what I eat, and doing more cleaning around my house and yard than what I am use to. I still have a long way to go, but I am hoping to get down to a healthier weight before the end of the summer.

I hope to start updating my blogs again so I hope I have more progress to show next week...
