New Year's Resolution: The Knitting Diet
I am an overweight gal. I like to say, fat and sassy. But recently, my doctor told me that I need to lose some weight. I am 50 pounds overweight and would love to lose even HALF of what I need to lose to get down to my original {skinny} weight (BEFORE CHILDREN). I am rejoining WW this year and starting a knitting diet. Each time I feel restless or nibbly, I pledge to pull out my UFOs and work on my knitting instead of eating. I should get alot of knitting done and hopefully lose a couple of pounds in the process. If nothing else, my yarn stash will lose some pounds. ;p

Anyone with me?

Knitting the nibbles away
You betcha!!! Where do I sign up?!

I've got around 50 or so pounds to shift also. When did that happen?!!!?!!!

Did mention to the DH yesterday about sitting on the exercise bike with knitting needles in hand...

I intend when the restless nibbly feelings take over, to go upstairs to the wool stash, retrieve wool, go back up stairs (again) to get some other vital piece of equipment forgotten about, then down to the end of the garden with the dog (because he's bound to want to go out when i get to the middle of a row...) and then sit down and knit!!

Here's to us so far Knitpurlgurl, may we knit the nibbles away!

Anyone else up for it?

I'm in! Need to lose the baby weight that's been hanging around. Knitting has helped break my nail-biting habit, hopefully it'll break the snackin' habit, too. Here goes!

We should meet online here regularly to check each other's knitting and nibbling progress.

I'll join in! If i lose weight then I'll be able to knit all those super cute patterns for myself.
Maybe I should have some yarn in the car since the ride home from work is my major weak point. Can't knit and drive though...

Great idea! Let's knit ourselves thin. Not only will it keep us from snacking, but it burns 90 calories an hour
We'll get our UFO done and look fabulous in the process!

A few years ago I saw a woman with a t shirt that said Knit more eat less. When I asked her about it she said she did just that and lost 30 ish pounds.
