I constantly kid my kids about getting a WiiKnit. It's OK, because they already think I've lost my mind.

Well, now that I think more on this famous quote, it really doesn't work for me because I knit at night in bed, once all the daily meals are already consumed...

At my physical this past Tuesday my doctor told me I'd lost 22lbs. since the last visit. He asked what I'd been doing and outside of watching my portions, and trying to stretch the food budget by limiting snacks, nothing.

Now seeing this thread I'm thinking that knitting also could have contributed. I too, don't want crumbs and grease on my hands and wait until I finish rows (or repeats) before I'll get up from my project.

....hmm, if I combine knitting with some exercise....

it does help..... when our crew gathers there's always a lot of high fat/high sodium OUCH MY ARTERIES type foods...

i didn't eat the entire weekend..... just pulled out my knitting (yes, i ate on the way home, had dh stop so i could get some yogurt).

this past holiday season i've managed to lose around 10 pounds.... both in my waist and in my stash!

Just yesterday my brother wanted to eat supper and he was telling me to put the needles down already and get something to eat. I kept repeating "just one more row..." until I realized that I was indeed hungry.

I didn't eat much since I wanted to get to my needles at once. :D

I'm the one trying to figure out how to knit on the treadmill. I've given up trying to find a way while I swim. It will never work.

Ha, I always thought that knitting would be a good weight loss solution. In one of debbie macomber's blossom street books one of the character uses knitting a a means of loosing weight. Guess it really does work
