Changed My Ticker ... Starting a Streak

Monday, June 10, 2013

I've fallen back into the Snacking before Dinner habit ... And that was one of the first habits I changed when I started on SparkPeople! I realized several years ago that I was eating all while I was fixing dinner, and then eating a full dinner. I started walking instead, and it was a key part of my success. Over the past 6 months I have gone backwards, and allowed myself a couple crackers or pita chips. But then "a couple" didn't satisfy me, and I just kept eating.

So, today I changed my Ticker to show days since No Snacking Before Dinner. It will be discouraging every time I have to reset the start date ... And I hope vanity will help me eliminate this bad habit again!

    Good idea! I totally understand that habit! I think that's my worst time of day, too! A good way to motivate yourself. I may have to try that too! Here's to a long and unending streak of no snacking before dinner! :)

    That's a great idea. I had a binge last night before dinner, so I might try this. Good luck!

    Good idea. I think snacking is probably my problem as well. Maybe I should look at my ticker. I didn't realise it could be used for streaks.
