A quick moment to pay tribute to one of the most brave, stalwart, and persistent groups you will ever find--and no, I'm not talking about all you Nashville parents trying to help your kids go sledding in a half inch of snow.
I'm talking, of course, about the Ten Pound Losers group
over at Ravelry. Back in September, this group was formed after some amount of wailing on Twitter about the desire to lose ten pounds. Since then, these resourceful, honest, and funny folks have shared their dreams, strategies, and tactics for taking off a little (or a lot of) weight.
After four months, it is downright inspiring to see how everybody's doing over there. But mostly, there are excellent tips and ideas, so come on over if you'd like to lighten your load a bit.
where you'll find us Losers.
Our Lady of Quinoa is the patron saint of the Ten Pound Losers. Here's a tasty recipe
to start you off. Not the lowest-cal thing you can eat, but so delicious!
