Monday Minus Three

I am happy to report today that I lost another three pounds, making my total weight loss of 19 pounds since September!

I started a new exercise routine seven months ago to get into shape. I’ve had rheumatoid arthritis since I was 16 years old, so exercise has become a must. My exercise routine has developed into a habit that keeps my knees super healthy. The bonus – weight loss!

I’m also thankful today to Melissa for sponsoring the Bronte-Along. I’m so happy I finally know the story of Jane Eyre. I finished watching the movie and reading the book over the weekend – I just love this story! Inspiration for my crafty project finally struck me. At one point in the movie, Jane starts wearing a red scarf around her neck. It was so cool seeing Jane grow into an independent woman, so outspoken and bold for her day!

I thought it would be fun to make an independent woman’s scarf of my own with this pomegranate yarn I had in my stash, based on a lacy pattern in Joelle’s knitting book.

The Bronte-along group is moving on to Wuthering Heights, so it’s a good thing I’m a fast knitter. I can be a slow reader, so I might have to rent the movie for the next one to keep up with the group. All in all, a pretty good Monday!

  • Whoo Hoo!! Congrats on losing the weight. I need to start an exercise regimen, maybe folding the treadmill back down would be a good start. Looks like you’ve made good progress on your scarf. I hope you like the movie or book, I really enjoyed both. Love the old movies.

  • I can’t knit so that leaves me out. Love that red color you choose for the scarf. Congrats on the weight lose. If I could loose a little. I’m not real good at the exercise and sticking with it.
    i have got to get back to walking, that helps me alot.

  • Congratulations Terri! Now can I send 5 or so pounds your way?
    I love that book. I’ve knitted a few things in there.

  • YAY FOR YOU!! I started a weight loss challenge in February…and I’m down 6ish. NINETEEN?! You must be on cloud nine!

    As for Miss Jane-I found the story to be much more significant and touching as an adult. I can’t even imagine what it must have been like to be a strong woman in those days!

  • Congrats on your weight loss!

    The yarn is so pretty! Happy knitting!

  • Sorry! That was my daughter’s account. That comment was from Randi. 🙂
