Going to bed earlier is one of the first steps to success for me. If I go to bed an hour earlier then I am not hitting the snooze button in the morning, I can get up and have breakfast not be rushed, and get in morning exersises. To me that is better than watching another hour of re-runs on tv.
After daily weighing for a while, I've really noticed that I lose weight after a good night's sleep. So to avoid night time eating, DH & I go to bed earlier. We say, "Off to lose some weight" as we go to bed. I used to hate going to bed, now I am happy to take myself off.
This helps with night time eating, too. If you want to eat at night after dinner, consider going to bed instead. It seems drastic, but I find it works really well.
Go to bed early as you can. My boyfriend loves to eat and snack at night, and I find myself eating more than he does! The longer you stay awake, the more tempting it is to snack on useless junk. Go to bed before 11pm if possible. Beauty sleep isn't just for your face, but for your body too =).
