Here is an idea...

If you are worried about eating at the yogurt place every day, why not go on some days and bring in a healthy snack on other days...

12 hour days are long days...

Otherwise, I like what k had said with regards to treats...

Keep up the good work

If you are losing weight and your blood sugar is okay, eat the treat with no guilt! You're being careful about how much you eat, so if you feel okay, go ahead. Sounds like you need a "pickmeup" about then, anyway. emoticon

Need---try getting a bit more protein earlier in the day. THEN, PLAN what you can do to avoid being bored. I realize 12 hr days are rough.

If you wish to have the "treat" make sure you are BUDGETING it in your calories for the day.

You are on the right track. You are taking the most important first step - that is realizing and acknowledging what goes in your mouth.

I highly recommend keeping a food journal, especially if you snack. It will help you see at the end of the day how you are really doing. A lot of times we forget about all those little snacks we eat during the day and some of them can add up.

Keep up the positive work. Getting the exercise in is a plus also. Baby steps is what it takes to make this long journey and you are well on your way.

emoticon I've managed to make it a month with my new healthy lifestyle, and I can feel the effects. Last friday I had lost 10 lbs. I've joined Curves, well not joined I'll never be able to afford to give them a hundred bux at one shot, but I'm using the wendy's free 2 weeks thing.

ANYWAY my point is, I work right next to TCBY (The Countries Best Yogurt)and towards the end of the night I would say about 7:00 I'll start to feel hungry, but not only that I'm bored and irritated. At 7:00 there's nothing open to grab a bite to eat so I find myself, no matter how hard I fight it, going to TCBY.

I usually get a small white chocolate mouse (96% fat free) no sugar caramel and pecan in a cup, not a cone.

Is that bad? Through the day I have special K for breakfast, usually a chefs salad or chicken salad and then depending on my energy something nice for dinner.

I try not to snack too much so is that so bad?
I used to bring snacks to work but since I've been working 12 hour days I've lost the energy to prepare anything.

what do you think? emoticon

The only thing I need to be is me.
