I gave up my night time snack. I didn't feel any different if I had one or didn't have one and it set me up for failure. I don't snack at all between meals. I find for me, it is better.

DIET IS A FOUR LETTER WORD!!!!

We are constantly creating our "karma" or destiny through our intentions, thoughts and deeds in this moment. It is achieved through countless deliberate acts of selflessness.

It's hard to be happy with others if we are not happy with ourselves.

Just keep on moving and you'll get there.


If you ever want to feel good about yourself, go out and help someone else!

I have been having a bedtime snack since I was diagnosed with diabetes. It helps to prevent an overnight low blood sugar. I usually have about 15 - 20 carbs and 7 g protein. If I can get the carbs and protein from the same source (like yogurt), all the better. I'm not sure how this works out in calories.

I always set aside some calories or points(ww)to use in the evening after dinner but before bed. This is a really good challenge! I used to eat a big bowl of ice cream really late at night or chocolate/chips/cake, etc. That was really adding on the pounds but now that I eat a small healthy snack in the late evening that's really helping me lose some pounds. I'm def. with you on this challenge!

The dreaded evening snack actually doesn't HAVE to be dreaded! I was browsing the SP articles and tips, hit one about late night snacking....this is what it says:

"There is a rule of thumb not to eat two hours before going to bed. This is often misunderstood to mean that you can't eat anything at all. Not true. You shouldn't eat a full, filling meal too close to bedtime, but a small, healthy snack is often okay.

It is possible to include a nighttime snack, especially on workout days, to prevent cravings and to get a good night's sleep. What are your total calorie needs? Set aside about 200 calories for an evening snack. Then fill your kitchen with healthy choices for these 200 calories. Examples: a bowl of cereal/milk, hot chocolate, yogurt, 1/2 sandwich, fruit. Keep track of exactly how much you can have of each snack for 200 calories so you don't fool yourself or make bad decisions at the last second.

Now you have set limits and have a plan. If you are willing to fix a snack, sit at the table and eat it (without watching TV, etc.) then you are probably truly hungry and not just eating out of boredom."


************

So there you have it...for the next few days lets work on saving some calories for a healthy evening snack and commit to eating it at the dinner table!! (that means i need to CLEAN my table!!)
