Just a note:
The project now has a new title:
as the project has progressed, it has increasingly become a project that shows itself as NUMBERS, systems of measurement, valuations.
The daily proctice of photographing the scale is becomeing a video . This whole process is developing into an installation having to do with systems of measurement, inventory methods, numbers of judgement. Stay Tuned!
At not quite 50% toward goal...my columnar process is increasingly evident. I am beginning to recognize myself in the mirror again. The changes are remarkable, to me. I am not yet svelte, for sure. Besides...can any woman who is 5 feet tall meet the crieteria of svelte? Long legs, willowy? I am, and will for-most-ever-more, barring frailty, be sturdy. I am well anchored to the earth, flat feet planted firmly in a reality that tends toward the factual.
My leggings are "longer" now, reaching easily and comfortably to my ankles. As they are required to cover less horizontality, they are eager to extend vertically. My waist gently appears. My neck is beginning to emerge again, separating itself from my ears.
The old Fitbit went to live in Boston at Christmas. Children are the beneficiaries of technological hand me downs. Now I have a SURGE...which does all the same things AND has a heart rate monitor (important to someone in their 60's) and a watch.
The plan is working. A waist of a sort is emerging. Artwork is developing. Eating is becoming more mindful and food more pleasureable.
