Thank you all for your replies and so quick at that. I appreciate that. Exercised my butt off today but stil caved in with a cookie or two with my sf cappucino. That was before I read all these great replies. I will get back to you all as to how successful I have been.
Hey Frannie: Good suggestions: I do like hummus a lot and even have a spinach artichoke one. The veggies you mentioned sound good too. I also like sf jello and choc pudding with a little sf cool whip, don't exactly know why I got away from that. Too many goodies in the house that should not have been there.
I want to be a person I can look up to.

Oh yeah, the Edys Frozen Strawberry FruitBars ARE awesome! But sometimes I just want a bit more so will have the Sugar-Free Angel Food Cake (120 calories/slice-big) with a cup of fresh strawberries that have been sitting in Splenda till they make their own juice! YUM!!! Gina

I am a big fan of Activia, the drink and yogurt, so I sometimes SAVE that till last with a bit of flax seed. Maybe some grapes, rice cakes, leftover bits of this and that. Just keep it small. A cuppa tea can do it for me, too. Surprise yourself!
Believe it or not, adding an evening snack is one thing I've done to help me lose weight. I always used to think it was a bad thing, and just didn't do it. Now I plan for it, and using the nutrition tracker, I can tell if I need more protein for the day, etc.
I like all the things already listed in this thread, fruit smoothies, and with the hot weather we've had lately, I've been really enjoying the occasional Skinny Cow ice cream treat - yum! That's not the highest nutritional value choice, but definitely helps keep me from feeling deprived when I'm around others eating the diet-busting version.
Late night snacking is definitely a challenge. I like hummus and veggies, I use snap peas, baby carrots and bell pepper strips. I also like sugar free jello with a little cool whip on top.

Hey everyone: I just checked back into SP after a very long absence. I am having the most problem with after dinner snacks so can anyone suggest some besides going to the meal planner section. Thanks so much. I am doing much better with exercise than with late night snacking.
