Mimi,
If you ate two HEALTHY snacks in the evening, and they fit your plan, doesn't necessarily mean that it was the snack which caused the increase in weight. You burn many calories daily with your very active lifestyle. We do not actually gain overnight from the foods we eat. (usually). My guess is it is not getting enough that might be the culprit. It takes 3500 calories to gain a pound. Sometimes eating at the higher end of our range for a day and switching things up even if it is bite over emoticon will actually help to reduce weight.
I am not advocating for you to go over your plan or what works for you. Just that I agree with your insights and everything I am reading on Spark validates what you say.
From a personal view-Don't worry you know your system the best and will find just the right combination. emoticon

Teresa

I ate yesterday TWO healthy snacks after dinner and the scale is up.
I guess it is good to learn from my history (means: yesterday)
I realized that my dinner portion is small, and that's why I'm hungry later.
Will change it today.

Didn't get in my oils yesterday. I made some roasted veggies with olive oil for dinner and my grandsons and hubby gobbled it down before I had a chance! I forgot with preteen boys that I should dish out my portion first emoticon

Meals for today are planned. I'll have 1 oil this a.m. with my breakfast and another one at lunch on my salad. Just need to get back in the habit.

One day at a time. Keep posting. Thank you.
Great job, Gena and Nancy.

Our leader said she mixes her oatmeal with flax seed oil. I like olive oil in my salad: tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, feta cheese and black olives.

Yesterday I had a WW desert after dinner. I rather eat steel cut oatmeal instead.
I'll make it today in the slow cooker.

I only had one snack yesterday after dinner.
Today I'm aiming to do the same.

How was your day?

The small change I'll make next week is to eat only one healthy snack after dinner.
NOT MORE!
I can do it for one week. Achievable!
Lately I'm eating more than one healthy snack after dinner. It was my biggest challenge for years.
I'm catching it now early enough and very aware of this.

Make one small change for the week of 3/4 - 3/11

Tomorrow starts a new fresh week.
Decide on one small and healthy change you will follow for next week, starting tomorrow.
(3/3/-3/11)

One step at a time
One change at a time

If you wish, you can post here your progress during the week.

Good luck!!!
