I'm going to try that! Thanks!

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

That is a great idea! I would not have thought of that, and I didn't know that about a high carb no fat snack. I really appreciate all the suggestions, I'm so glad I came to this site! Thank you!!!

I agree that fatigue really fuels the cravings for sweets. Awhile back, I read somewhere that having a high carb snack before bedtime helps you sleep. However, there shouldn't be any fat in the snack. Right after I read the article, I looked at what I happened to have in the house that seemed to fit the bill. I had some marshmallows left over from a night by the firepit. So, I gave it a try. I slept like a baby. That little 50 calorie dose of carbs actually works. I have one about 1/2 hour before I go to bed....See if you can find a snack that will work for you as well. A 50 calorie "buy" before bedtime might save you many more calories during the day. Good luck!

Thanks for the suggestion, and I think that may be what is happening. I feel like maybe my body is looking for some "quick fuel"....I will try the fruit.

I love ice cream, what I do to kick the craving is slice up bananas and put peanut butter in between 2 slices and freeze them. When I can't hold out on the ice cream any more, I just eat 1 or 2 of these and it kicks the craving every time with a nice healthy snack!

emoticon I find that the more fatigued I get, the more cravings for sweets I get. It is especially difficult for me in the summer when it is so danged hot and I get overtired much more easily. I know that I read somewhere that when you are tired, your body craves carbs because your brain is sending signals that you need more energy even if you have had plenty of calories that day. Maybe substitute an apple or a banana or orange when you get that craving. Hope this helps.

I'm not always a big sweets person, but I have noticed lately (the last week or so) that I want ice cream every night before bed. I am not sure if this is something that my body is craving, if it is because I am overly tired, or what the issue is, but I do think that even a little bit here and there is one of the reasons that I am having a hard time losing this weight. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, any suggestions as to what to do? Thanks!
