down another 10 pounds

Im still eating just liquids and Im still not hungry. Yipee I did loose another 10 pounds so thats 20 pounds all total.
Ive been crocheting a few items such as washcloths and hats for my mom. I do have a special project going but I cant show it to you just yet.
As soon as I can pull myself together Im going to see about starting up a new group of crocheters here in Vegas. I just need to figure out where to meet and what we all might want to get out of crocheting as a group. If you, my friends, have any suggestions bring them on...
Ok Im going back to my crocheting and I want you all to do the same...

10 pounds down

I went to my first meeting with the doctor today and they weighed me for the first time and I lost 10 pounds! I cant believe it 10 pounds in one week. But of course I have only been eating yogurt, applesauce and chocolate protien drinks with lots of water:) I know Im suppose to drink 64 ounces of water but I was only able to do that one day, most of the time I can get down around 45-50 ounces.
Afterwards I went to Dillards and bought a new pair of Sketchers so I can start walking on the treadmill. Thats one of the reasons I did this surgery so I can start walking more without getting exhausted and hurting. I want to go on vacation and walk around to places to sightsee. I want to go back to New England and be able to go to Boston and walk the streets. Thats one of my goals and oh yea to go see Dee again over at
Well I did go to Ravelry and saw all the ladies that live in Vegas. But I dont know how to let them all know that I want to start a new crochet group. But Ill figure it out:)
Well I need to get back to my crocheting Im on a time limit to get it done. Plus I want to make a little extra gift too. But we will see if I can get one done. Happy crocheting...

Crochet only group

I vented today about not having a crochet only group in town. Im truely sorry if I have offended anyone for asking for it. I am open minded aboout knitting I myself am just not interested in it. So please dont feel badly its no ones fault if there is any fault to be had.
I must say that I did enjoy all the ladies that did come to the meetings. They were so sweet and kind. I know they enjoy there group and Im very happy for that.
Ok Im going back to my crocheting.....
you will not believe it but I wrote out the post here and lost it just when I was finishing up. dont you hate that?
well ok here we go again. I had the lapband surgery on the 2nd and Im starting to feel good again. Not so stiff and bruised up. I stopped taking the pain meds they gave me because I could not sleep good on it. I had the best nights sleep in a few days last night.
I will take a new pic of me when this all starts to melt away maybe around 50 pounds...oh how exciting. Im looking forward to buying new clothes come next year something to look forward to:) For sure
I just finished reading the mystery novel called Hooked on Murder that Dee mentions on her blog I really wanted to go and join the group and help the finish there aghan on time but they seem to get it done with out my help:) OH how fun to be in a Crochet only group. I did start going to a group here in Vegas but they started bringing in there knitting and all so I lost interest. I know I shoud be more open minded but come on there is knitting groups everywehre but wehre is a crochet only group? for pities sake am I wrong?
Im working on something new and I cant mention it here because ther are big eyes that dont need to see what Im up to:) It will be a surprise!
Ok have a great day and Ill see you again in my dreams in my CROCHET only group! Happy crocheting...
