I would have had a great day yesterday staying within my calorie range if I didn't eat that 280 calorie Captain D fish Casinda offered. I wasn't even hungry.
And again, although I fell asleep promptly around 8:30, I awakened, got bored and ate nachos. If I hadn't taken that 3rd Restoril, I would have eaten a 200 calorie granola bar.
I know I need to go to sleep like I should to avoid the snacks, but on the other hand I don't want to depend on the pills!
My new plan of action is to adjust my 6 small meals every 3 hours. What I should do is set a timer after I taken the last bite of the meal instead of setting the timer after I've taken my first bite. That will stretch my meals even longer and I can gauge what my hunger pangs really feel like. Who knows, my dinner can end later in the early night staving off my mindless late night snacking cravings.
