WiW...I May Have Found the Secret.

Happy WiW everyone.  I have been working.  Not necessarily  working out  but working at figuring out why my weight loss has seemed to have stalled this last year.  I know some of it has been because I've bounced around and tried different things (you can read about that here). Then one day I started going through old blog posts and thinking about what I was doing not just on the blog but in my life

then it came to me...
  I was doing a lot of crafting.  I love to craft, I love trying new crafts, I even turned TaTa's old room into my crafting/office when she moved out.

  I sew, do paper crafting, some jewelry making, and bows.  I used to LOVE to make hair bows.
 I would sell them at my school and even had an etsy shop for a bit.  Then for some reason I just fell out of it. 
When I was reflecting I really thought about it and tried to figure out why I was doing better with my weight during that time. DUH... I was busy, busy making or sewing.  Planning or taking pictures.  My hands were always busy. 
My hands and mind were busy.  So there was no mindless snacking.  I would stop long enough to make and eat meals, and I wouldn't go back for seconds because I needed to get back and finish what I was working on. I wasn't mindlessly eating.   HOLY CRAP! I think I may have found the answer.
Also I love to watch TV and lately I've been sitting with DQ or at the kitchen table with my iPad and watch but then I would get bored and start looking for things to snack on. So I just brought my iPad in to my craft room/office and watched it while I was working on things.

and this is the result of finding the secret to hopefully my success  …
down 3.4 pounds

Now, any guesses to what I'm doing next? lol

Linking up with Fitness Blondie, and Weigh in Wednesday.


  1. Awesome realization with the crafting and keeping your hands busy so that you don't snack!

  2. That is awesome your hobby is helping in other areas of your life as well!

  3. I love this!! I keep stalling on my crafts thinking it will take time away from my working out, but I think you are onto something with the snacking and busy-ness!

  4. Awesome! I am attempting to do the same, find something to keep me occupied so i'm not just eating and eating! Great loss!
