It sounds like you're doing great already with your exercise! The way I've found that I quit "snacking" or picking at food in the evenings (and I've been a life-long evening snacker), is to really think about what my evening snack will be, and limit that evening snack to one snack if it's something that's higher in calories and/or fat...however, I am trying to only eat healthy (or fairly healthy) snacks, like nuts, fruit, yogurt, milk, Cabot 50% or 75% low-fat cheese, etc. I love the (new) Kashi TLC pita crisps. 11 crisps have 120 calories, not much fat at all, a lot of fiber, and low sodium. I've also set a time limit for myself to eat my snack...no snacking after 9:00pm.
If I have a chocolate craving or sweet tooth, I'll have a cup of Swiss Miss hot chocolate (using milk instead of water), and that satisfies my sweet tooth.
I hope these ideas help you & keep up the great work!
Welcome to our SparkFamily!
Sounds like you've already been making some great changes in building your healthy lifestyle!
I find it helps to have healthy snacks handy for later in the evening...things like natural almonds, baby carrots, grape tomatoes help to satisfy that snacking urge in a healthy way.
Keep up the super SPARKIN'!

I have been watching my diet since July. I have lost some weight but I still have about 20 to 30 more pounds to get rid of and the spare tire. All of my weight is located in the mid section of my body. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and was in the hospital for over a week in July due to an infection caused by the high blood sugar readings. I am hoping that SP will guide me along so that I can reach my goal. I am currently walking on treadmill about 1/2 each day at 3.0 miles per hour. I have an ablounger to help me with the crunches and I am up to about 50 to 80 crunches each day. I just have a bad habit of picking in the evening not really knowing what I want and not really feeling hungry. Trying to break that habit real quick and in a hurry. Any sugestions?
I AM GOING TO MAKE IT!
