Use SP appointment e-mail reminders to e-mail yourself an encouraging message!
Make an "appointment" with SP's appointment calendar and give it a motivating title. Add some nice thoughts in the details box and choose a time when you want it to be sent to your e-mail. I love getting sweet messages from me in the past :)
You could set it to e-mail you at tough times, like at night when you want to snack but know that you shouldn't.
By planning the night before I have saved a lot of beating myself up.
When you do plan ahead it helps if you have made some food groupings that you can just plunk in. Aiming for the lower limit on your suggested range means that you can have a small bit of wiggle room the next day.
I try and find things to curb late night snacking and I recently was under the weather and was eating ice chips. Believe it or not..they seem to work w/ 'mindless' night snacking.it's time consuming to chew on them and helps with 'boredom' snacking. I even bought (at the dollar store) popsicle makers..i just fill em with cranberry juice (or other healthy stuff), freeze em and they're good for late nights too!
