Who needs jogging, I have knitting!

Today I am most thankful for knitting. Knitting helps me lose weight. Sadly, it does not burn calories in and of itself-well, maybe about 1 per hour if you're a vigorous knitter. I have discovered that it keeps me from snacking, though. I have to use both hands, and I don't want to get them dirty (you know, covered in that orange cheezy stuff) or sticky by snacking in between rows. I happen to be an afternoon snacker. For some reason, no matter how a big a lunch I have, about 3 or so, the snack alarm goes off. So, I've turned to knitting. I'm praying that all my friends and neighbors are blessed with new babies so I can continue to have projects. :)
Between WW online and knitting, it's working!
