Hey!
I get the snacking thing a lot too, but I find that eating any type of crackers or healthy chips, anything in the "I have to be cooked" terittory is a no-no for snacking. I just had to force myself to stop. I put healthy alternatives in the house, and with a touch of a sweet taste. Strawberries are awesome but are expensive, so if you get the on sale then grab them. There are so few calories in a huge pile of them, which makes for a good length of snacking with pseudo-mindlessness approved... I mean, that is the way of healthy snacking, you gotta think before hand... then you can mindfully, mindlessly snack :) I also keep carrots around. I look for the bags of baby carrots that are ready to eat. I can keep those and snack on them without dire consequences.
Just wanted to put in my two sense on the snacking thing :) See you later!

I like to do Web development and I am a Computer Science major at Mills College.

I'm currently 170 and I carry it all over, so I don't look overweight but I am at 5'8. I gained about 10 to 20 lbs over the last 3 years and I'm dying to shed it while getting in shape. I have always played sports thought I'm not currently. I'm unemployed and have too much time to sit around and snack.

I try snacking on things that aren't that bad, like rice crackers from TJ's. I started with corn chips which aren't great. But I seem to be sensitive to gluten so corn and rice are better. When I eat gluten I feel all puffy and nasty.

I wonder if I can manage to adjust my eating in a way that I actually loose weight. I feel overweight, so it's not just that I don't like the way I look. I have started exercising with the XBox Shapeup Kinect stuff and it's great. I have a weightloss app that has 8 weeks of weight loss. I have gone through all of it and have now started over, and am on week 2. I had a break the first time when I went away and then got sick with the flu.

It seems like when I top eating food with gluten and cut down sugar it makes the biggest difference in feeling like I start to make progress. I am addicted to sugar. Yesterday I bought ice cream. I wonder how long I can let it sit in the fridge without eating it. I am trying the sugar challgenge. I feel like if I got people involved with it and so I would have to tell people if I ate sugar it would be more of a motivation to stop eating sugar.

Bla!
