My solution for ending night time snacking.

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

WOW! Just found a Spark team called CROCHETING THE POUNDS AWAY, which is exactly what I've been doing these past weeks. My endless night time snacking has disappeared, and I've been doing the SLOW AND STEADY thing and losing 1-2 pounds a week. The wonderful byproduct of all this is that I've completed 8 hats for the homeless for a local Mission outreach, and 6 hats for kids with Cancer, aged 3-11. I've also seen a couple dozen good Netflix movies and several on Kindle Prime. It's such a win-win proposition with such a good outcome for all.
I'm feeling so blessed by answered prayer because the Lord finally showed me a solution to my endless evening dilemma. My couch had become my enemy because its where I sat to watch my Kindle every night and snack endlessly to keep my idle hands busy. Now I can leave my wheelchair for the comfort of my couch and produce something worthwhile at the same time. Like I said, WIN-WIN emoticon

    Good work, both on finding a way to avoid late night snacking AND giving of yourself for someone else. emoticon emoticon

    Patty, that is emoticon I wish I knew how to crochet or knit well enough to do this. I, too, have a problem with eating in the evening. I have to force myself to get as far away from the kitchen as possible and make myself avoid it. For me and I think lots of people, it can be deadly...literally. Anyway, congrats on your solution and on the great volunteer effort you are making!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
