  1. Beautiful! I really want to add this to my list of projects!
  2. That is just beautiful! Can you tell me how you did the raised effect? Is it a pattern that is available? Thanks!
  3. Wow! I haven't been here for a while and it's encouraging to see how some people are doing so well and to also see those that aren't doing so well are still sticking with it. It is very helpful to me to see that! It lets me know that I am not alone. I haven't been doing any crocheting for over a month because I have been having some health issues that have been giving me so much pain in my arm that I can't crochet. BUT, I am going into the hospita on Tuesday and I will be having surgery on two disks in my neck that should relieve the pain and hopefully in a few more weeks I will be back to
  4. Good afternoon everyone! I don't have much to report. I had origanally lost 5 lbs, then put it back on and now have lost 2 again. So far those have stayed off. Unfortunately, I have not been able to make any progess past my first two rows on my 'ghan. I really have to start moving around and exercising more. Sitting in an office all day and then going home and just sitting around watching tv is not getting the weight off. But, it is nice to see all of you that are doing so well. I don't want to get discouraged but it is hard sometimes. It seems that I have been battling these same 5
  5. I know how you feel. I had lost 5 pounds and have now gained 3 back. I'm not even sure how I did that. I get discouraged easily and haven't went back to my exercising. But I am going to start again tonight! Of course I told myself that yesterday also, but I couldn't tear myself away from watching American Idol. Better luck tonight though! Renee
  6. Hi everyone! I just wanted to check in and let everyone know that I weighed in this morning and have now lost 2 pounds. I will be working on the first two rows of my afgan tonight. I also just got the wii fit today and can't wait to get started on it. My DD and i are both going to be using it to get healthier. Have a great evening! Renee
  7. This is me too!! I am not thinking about dieting until Jan 2nd. I am going to be eating dinner at my mom's with all of my family for Christmas today and then again for New Years. I will try to watch what I eat so that I don't put on any more weight but I am not going to put a lot of effort into ignoring all that great food. Renee
  8. I have never officially joined this CAL but have followed it along for some time now. I was very inspired by all the beautiful rr's that I saw here that I decided to give it a try myself. Here is the photos of the two round ripples I did for my newphews. They received there gifts last night and just loved them. I can't wait to start another one. I am truly hooked on this these. I want to thank all of you for the inspiration and woud like to join this CAL so that I can continue to be a part of all the fun! Renee
  9. Great job! Keep up the good work! I missed my company Christmas party so I wasn't tempted to overeat. I haven't weighed myself yet but I thought I would wait until after the first of the year for this to start.
  10. I really like the border around your rr. Can you please tell me how you did it? Thanks, Renee
  11. Yes. It is the last one on the page. I bought the one in shades of green to match my living room. I think that it is just so pretty. Renee
  12. Count me in! I really need to lose some weight. I spent two days in the hospital a few weeks ago because I thought I was having a heart attack at work so they rushed me to the ER. Doctor told me to lose weight and take better care of my health. I plan to use a afghan kit that I bought from Hershnerrs. It is the ripple afghan that looks like it is in layers. I love it and so I bought it and never started it. This will be the perfect incentive to work on it. Great idea!!! Renee
