Good luck with your plans and goals today!

Day 3 of not eating after 9PM (Goal = 100 days in a row)

Saturday, September 20, 2014

Hello.

Made it another night. Saving the calories for a snack between 8-9pm works really well. It's harder earlier in the day, but I'm not as tired then, so can cope better.

[insert metallic sound of sword being pulled from sheath]

Friday, September 19, 2014

I am beast tamer! The light of awareness shines on all my frustration and other emotions and illuminates my way!

grrr... (That's the sound of determination.)

Translation: I got frustrated with something and wanted to eat to 'fix' it. I became aware of it and rather than eating, decided to pull out my imaginary sword to tame myself. I shall not be fooled!

Day 2 of not eating after 9PM (Goal = 100 days in a row)

Friday, September 19, 2014

Hello. I struggled with not eating after 9PM, but kept to it.

Analysis of the success:

1, Planned snack between 8-9PM: 200 calories of almonds

2. Stress reduction: I made time last night to pay attention to my stress level and to lower it by shopping online for 15 minutes. (Didn't buy anything, but looking was relaxing.)

3. Changed access to food: I put tempting foods in a cooler in the car and parked much farther away from the house than I usually park.

I hope that your plans and goals are going well!

Day 1 again of not eating after 9PM

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Hello. After a short successful run of not eating after 9PM, I messed up on Wednesday night and binged on about 800 calories of food at 10PM.

Analysis: Didn't make the time for refreshing my memory about my goals and my plans. Was a bit sick and quite tired. I used food for comfort.

Yesterday I got right back on track, including doing well after 9PM (didn't eat anything). Yeah! My goal is to make it 100 days in a row without eating after 9PM.

I'd love to hear from anyone else who struggles with night time comfort eating. How do you handle it?

    I already told you what I did. I eat in an 8 hour window and stop at 7 P.M. I don't like to go to bed on a full stomach as it isn't healthy and I go to bed at 10. I have a good supper and a snack so I don't need anything later.

    I have a problem also. Have tried guzzling water and eating celery. Not much works for me except STEELY WILLPOWER. Also, sometimes I will go to the pool and swim an hour or two and then come home and have supper. You have to wait until after 9pm to eat but then it is healthy supper.

Good luck. If you find any tricks please let me know.
