eating after supper

Monday, March 18, 2013

I am really having a difficult time snacking after supper! This has got to be the longest winter in history for us and the evenings are still so dark, we just had yet another weekend of blowing snow, very gloomy and cold, so needless to say stuck in doors! I am an emotional eater so no need to say more l guess! What do other people do? I read alot, l would love to learn how to knit, maybe that will keep my hands busy!

    evening eating is a huge issue for me. I can eat non-stop the whole time. I know it is a boredom, feeling sorry for myself, thing. If I can go out in the evening, or chat on the phone, that keeps me away from food.
Going to bed earlier is also helpful and that has other benefits: very few people get sufficient sleep.

    Thank-you for all your encouraging posts! It sure helped, l really thought about it last evening and was good about the choices l made. It's great to know that others out there share the same issues and can offer support! emoticon

    I set an intention not to eat unless I am hungry. I've been making progress on this gradually. I plan an evening snack (carb and protein) and that's it. If I get the urge to eat more, it's usually for reasons other than hunger (ie stress, boredom, anger, frustration, fatigue, etc...). I try to determine what will help relieve whatever the non hunger feeling is that I am experiencing. More than not this works for me, along with DVRing better TV than what's on in the evenings, setting an earlier bedtime, and reaching out to the SparkCommunity as you have done. I have also found that supplementing vitamin D has helped me with the long gray winters in my "neck of the woods." Certainly, I have not "perfected" eliminating my evening eating, but I am encouraged by my progress. Perhaps you will find something here that sparks your journey! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    If you can, try to possibly exercise or maybe take up painting? You can do this!

    Same problem, and same thought on knitting to tame the night time snacking. I am hoping someone has something to share on whether knitting has helped. Good luck to both of us.

    My wife and I make a bet. The first one that eats after dinner loses the bet. We laugh until our sides hurt trying to not eat. Make it fun, it really helps.
