I usually walk around and do other things while I have the TV on. I find that I WILL start snacking if I just sit in front of the TV. Maybe try committing to doing ten situps or ten pushups during commercials?

I think learning to knit or something sounds like a good idea!

No late evening or late night television watching in our home; however, we Visions like the idea of exercising when viewing a program on the telly. We have one television set up so that we can watch while walking the treadmill or doing any number of other exercises. My beloved MrV is doing just that at this very moment in time! See my MrV --- emoticon ? emoticon

May you find what works for you! There is a perfect solution to your concern.

I used to be a grazer too. I will do a few different things to keep myself from eating. First I save all of my evenings laundry to fold during shows, during commercials I hang the closet stuff. Also, like a lot of others, my laptop is in the living room with me. So spark and facebook combined keep me from heading into the kitchen. Oh and if I really want to give in, I will allow myself a diet soda or a heavier drink instead of food. I keep only diet drinks and crystal light in the house, so my belly fills up not my calories though.

I had a fantastic, small stepper (climber) years ago and lost ten pounds.

The next one I bought was awful, I could barely pump it. I think if you're ok by your doc and you don't already have knee problems it's a fun (can be space saving) way to get indoor cardio in.

As far as the elipticals go...I found them very uncomfortable. Not a natural movement at all. Didn't feel like walking or skiing, I just felt unbalanced, like I was going to fall on my face at any moment. Made a great coat rack all folded up though.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

Seriously, I think I'll take crochet lessons at the local college this fall for just this reason. emoticon
I really like jigsaw puzzles too, but don't have enough space to keep one around.

Night time nibbling can be a problem for me too. I like the crochet idea...might dig out a project I started a ways back and see if that helps keep my hands busy without shoving food in my face. Good idea

Why is it I can spend hours on the computer and not even think of food, nibbles or binging, but when I'm not doing anything or just sitting watching tv etc food is always on my mind emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
So yes, keeping the hands busy & the mouth shut is a challenge for me too emoticon

I like to sit on the floor and do stretching while I watch TV. It is relaxing, good for you, helps your appearance, and keeps you out of the food.

I Crochet. when away from the computer and in my recliner i'm found crocheting afghans. Or playing solitaire. I know this sounds dumb but I also like doing jigsaw puzzles, too. It keeps my mind off of food.

I tend to watch a lot of late night t.v.. Again, those shows or movies I won't watch around the kids.

I need to stop grazing while watching t.v. and keep my hands busy with something else. Drinking water is great, but I like to fidget.

How do you keep your hands busy? How do you like to futz? I don't know how to knit or crochet, but I'm tempted to start learning.
