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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Hello Terri, a big congratulations on loosing three pounds. I remember reading Wuthering Heights in High School. Loved it. Good luck with the reading. Happy days to you.

  5. Congratulations on the weight loss! You have inspired me to get to bed now so that I can get up early to exercise. I just started my morning exercise regimen again last week. Starting is always the hardest part!

  6. Wow!! Way to go! Good for you for sticking to it! (love those jeans, by the way). Love your red scarf too. Makes me wish (once again) that I knew how to knit. Someday… Have a good day! Paula
