Thanks for the great article link Alicia - one change I am making is to not get weighed. I'm trying to adjust habits one by one, and view my success that way. It's a different mindset for me, but it is really making me concentrate on what I am doing and choosing.
I also am adopting the complex breakfast tip to see if that helps my night-hungry problem. I usually wake up at 4-5:00 AM, have coffee and eat later at my desk around 7:30. I'm not hungry until then. But even after a good lunch, I am starving from 4PM through dinner through until bedtime, and that is when most of my "extra" calories have been in my diet. So, Woke up today 4:00, 4:45 had egg, toast, tomato with my coffee. We'll see what happens.
Don't think of it as this time, think of it as lifetime.
I'm terrible about drinking enough water. I really liked the idea of setting the table with a carafe of water for easy refills. Think I'll try it tonight!
Any changes you want to try?
~Alicia “When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” -John Lennon
