Hello There! Seen your post on the Over 60's and realized I ha dn't seen you in awhile. Glad to see you and know what you mean by that night time eating. Seems I just can't go to sleep unless I have a midnight snack. Have been trying to keep those snacks healthier and trying to stay within the calorie range for the day. We will succeed!
