I journal my eating in Spark daily to stay within my daily ranges! I also have started cutting off my eating 2-3 hours before bedtime. After my last meal, I wait about 20 mins and take my dog for a 20 min walk, or get on my treadmill for 20 mins. I have consistent weight loss weekly with this method. If hunger creeps up after my last meal, I have a hot cup of decaf herbal tea to curb it a bit! I normally try go to bed with the feeling of "hummm, I could eat a little something."
Works every time to take the pounds off weekly! Learned this little trick from Bob Greene! It really works when you incorporate it with eating healthy within the ranges that Spark sets for you!

not eating 4-5 hours before bedtime. going to bed hungry but drinking water quells the hunger pangs. it is called discipline. anything that is good for us isn't always the easiest. when you see the results of not eating 4-5 hrs. before bedtime it makes it easy to do just that.
My 8 year old loves to play video games (who doesn't right?) but before she allowed to play she has to read for the amount of time she wants to play for the day. Her game time is cut off at an hour each day. That way if she wants to play for an hour she has to read for an hour first.
