First off, thank you to everyone that has left encouraging comments regarding tracking. I've done it before, and had hoped I could lose weight without it. But, looking at my caloric intake this week, I can see why I'm running in place! Somedays, it's shocking how far odd track I get! I don't think I'll be losing any weight this week:(

But, I am forging ahead. It's obvious late night eating is an issue. I've gotten better control of the sweets, but they continue to plague me. So, it's time to start tweaking the diet. And continue tracking!

    I totally empathize with you! I do much better when I am tracking daily than when I am not. I am so much more aware of what I am eating when I see it all there in front of me!

    I like to track in advance...helps me keep in control, and plan my goodies wisely.

    I'm so glad I chose tracking this week! Even though I've gone over everyday, I'm becoming more aware of what I'm doing. Mornings can be tough for me so that's the area I'm working on, that and snacking!

    I feel the same way about tracking. It's a hassle but always an eye-opener and very helpful. I had a slip-up last night and did a little extra snacking before bed also. I guess today I will get some extra exercise--shoveling!--to help work that off. Ha!

It's still early in the week, so don't get discouraged. I keep reminding myself we just need to do the best we can each day!

    Even though I have mixed feelings about tracking, I can't disagree that it's a very helpful tool that shows us exactly what we're doing wrong.
Late night eating is a huge issue and I keep running across blogs written by people who have a hard time with it. I think you should get to the root of the problem and try to find the reasons behind it. Also, why not focus on how to get an early good night's sleep that could keep you away from late-night eating?
Good luck!

    I have read many articles about eating late at night - what I remember the usually there is hunger for eating snack, which in turn are sweet, and sweet triggers often to eat more sweet stuff. Then lack of sleep also triggers eating more. So, I pay attention to sleep enough, and eat some fruits or similar instead of sweet snacks in the evening.
Happy you are tracking - sometimes I'm also surprised how calories add up, vs. my assumption was.

    Good to see that tracking is helping you see where you need to make adjustments in your eating. Keep going with it!
