I am a night time points plus hoarder...


Sunday, November 18, 2012

I will admit I hoard points plus values at night now that I am back on maintenance.

Take the last couple of nights for example.

Friday night I used up 9 points plus on dessert alone having a weight watcher smoothie made with fat free milk, a weight watcher chocolate caramel bar and honey bunches of oats cereal.

Last night was 11 points used up with fat free frozen yogurt, weight watcher smoothie with fat free milk, 2 marshmallows and reduced fat peanut butter on 1 slice of low calorie wheat bread

Tonight was better (I think) as I had 1 slice apple pie, a piece of string cheese (during the day), an apple and 1% milk.

How can I stop this from happening?. Any advice is welcome.

    I am guilty of that too! So, I can not be of much help. Hope you share with me and others when you figure it out. lol

    I do the same thing... I'm still trying to lose weight so I get 27 points a day. I try to save 7-8 points for after dinner. My usual snacks are a 100 cal bag of microwave popcorn for 3 pts (I like to eat a lot of something and be able to eat the whole bag) and something sweet like a snack size WW ice cream cone (2 pts).

I'm not sure on advice, but I sure can empathize! I'll offer a theory that I was told when my daughter was just old enough to sleep through the night, but kept waking up to eat. (she's now 15 months & blissfully STTN now!) I was told to make sure she eats enough during the day so she doesn't have to wake up to eat at night. This may sound silly and tougher to apply to an adult. But something to think about, if you take in enough calories during the day you may not be as hungry at night. Perhaps only save 5 points for after dinner.

I do the online program, from your previous blogs, it sounds like you are going to meetings. Maybe the leaders will have some tips for you.

Good luck & let me know if my advice is helpful or way off base - lol!
