im off to do more dieting …LOL
(im not thinking this is gonna work if i take my ruffles and dr pepper with me…:shrug: )

And suddenly I don’t feel guilty for skipping the gym today.

With that said, in order to loose a pound a week, one must reduce one’s calories by 500 a day. So…if an afternoon [5 hours] of knitting is 500 calories… I’m just sayin’ :woot:

I knew it!

  1. Get out your knitting needles. An afternoon of knitting can burn more than 500 calories (at a rate of about 100 an hour).

And it is good for the mind too. When I was struggling with Ribbing (I sooo get it now) I was knitting while repeating the mantra ’ knit 1, purl 1…’ I was concentrating hard and made a conscious effort to ignore all other thoughts so really I was also meditating!

Plus, as it says in the other thread, your hands are so busy you can’t be picking up crisps or candies!
