I feel 'ya. As of this morning I was 7 lbs over where I would like to be. Ugh.

Well, if nothing else, tracking will keep you accountable for what you are putting in your mouth, and might even give you a few revelations that will help you along the way.

Tracking would be a good idea. If you need something at night try a protein. I've heard many times just a spoonful of peanut butter will help and I've done that and it does satisfy me. I usually have calories to spare at the end of the day so if I need something, I usually can go for it.

Good Luck!

Even when I was losing and tracking calories, I didn't really have calories left over. I think I will have to go back to tracking calories. I am up to 170, 10# from my goal weight. emoticon

If I'm hungry at bed time, I have either a scoop of Casein protein powder (slow digesting protein, to keep my stomach busy while I sleep), nonfat cottage cheese (also high in casein protein), or a hard-boiled egg (very slow-digesting). If I don't want any of those things I figure it's not true hunger and don't eat.

I think if you start tracking again you will be more mindful of what you are eating and have some calories left for a nighttime snack.

I used to work out everyday - now I struggle with 4 days a week. Working on this. Especially since I am 168 from 160, my goal weight. Not the way I want to go!

I do have a mini chocolate treat after lunch and supper. Also, I have not tracked for months. I may try to start that again.

Arctic Zero ice cream is such a nice treat (120 cals a PINT - and I never eat more than 1/3 pint at a time)- a little pricey, but the cost is coming down. I use that as a reward for myself at night or if I am really in a grazing mood, I'll eat a few sunflower or pumpkin seeds (in shells so that I have to work for them).

My hunger hits when I eat too many carbs or dont't get enough protein. Try adding more protein and reducing your carbs at dinner and see if the late evening munchies subside.

Best of luck,

I keep 2-3 hundred calories a day in reserve for weekend splurging. If I need a late snack I know it will come from that bank. I don't track often anymore but 'the bank' is pretty much habit now. Is there a time you splurge regularly that you could cut back on to have calories for late evening? Alternatively you could up exercise calories. Not sure what your workout regimen is. I add more high intensity interval cardio when I'm struggling with maintenance.

Our dinner is at 6pm. We generally go to sleep around 10pm but are often in bed earlier - reading. I always keep enough calories for a slice of wholewheat bread and some vegemite/marmite to have round 9pm. Knowing that is waiting for me keeps me off picking at extras after dinner.

We have always been people who ate dinner late (for most people), but the longer we are retired, the later we stay up and therefore, the later we rise. Dinner is usually 9 or 10 p.m. I would prefer not to get up before 8 or 9 a.m. therefore breakfast is not until 11 or 12 noon and lunch around 3 p.m. Strange, I know, but it works for us and everyone has their own internal clocks.

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

I typically go to bed at 10ish. I've wanted to try to get my calories to go further but it just doesn't seem to work..

How late are you staying up? I'm getting ready for bed at 9. (am one of those that needs lots of sleep!) Can you plan for a light snack that stays within your daily calorie range? Other than that, don't have any ideas for you. Good luck!

Do you struggle with the 9 pm hour? Even when I was losing weight, I would be hungry at 9 pm, every day. I know/knew if I ate or did not eat at 9 pm, it could mean losing/gaining/maintaining weight. In recent months, I am tired of being hungry so I am eating at 9 pm and struggling at maintaining. Do you have any tips for me?
