    I Cross Stitch, I have been doing it for years and have finished pieces framed and hung up all over my home.

    It really does help to keep my hand's busy, and away from the dreaded 'nibbles' especially when I am sitting quietly in the evening or watching TV.

    I usually say to myself, just a few more stitches and I shall forget that I fancy a bag of crisps or a biscuit or two - and you know it does work!!!

    What do you do to stop the 'nibble' syndrome?.....

    Hey,

    I go out to the gym, or play netball - if i'm not in the house i don't think about food.. I think i get bored just watching the tv so thats the danger time that i pick.. If i feel this way - i get up and go for a walk.. by the time i get back the urge has gone..

    Other trick i have is to go get in the bath - that makes me sleepy so then i go to bed..

    k xx

    It is surprising how quickly the time goes when engrossed looking for an ancestor. Definately takes your mind of food. lol
