Wow! Thank you so very much! I work the Front Desk from 12am to 8am and at night time its really slow. I will take your advice and once again thank you so much. This is the first step to a long journey and being that I can ask a question and get the answers I need makes things seem so easy.
Hey Erica.....I work 3rd shift as well from 11pm-7am. What I do is eat a greek yogurt and a protein bar around 12-1am. It keeps me full. Try to drink lots of water sometimes you may think you are hungry but in reality your body is craving water. I don't know what kind of job you have but if you aren't busy try to bring something to work to keep you busy. Something that will keep you interested enough to where you don't think of food. Good Luck!

WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time.
A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
3. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~

My name is Erica and I'm really new to the spark community. I found out about this site from a co-worker. This is an awesome site because it gives you an idea of what to eat and you dont have to starve yourself while trying to loose or maintain a healthy weight. I'm currently battling my highest weight which is 276 pounds and I dont know where to start. I work overnight and around 2am or 3am I found myself hungry or eating to stay awake during work. Any suggestions or feed back would be greatly appericated.
