One thing I really like that fixes my chocolate cravings is Yoplait Whipped Chocolate Mousse. It has 140 calories and is premeasured so I'm not tempted to cheat. When the weather is hot, I freeze it to use as ice cream. The whipped freezes better than regular yogurt.

I find that when I don't get enough sleep, I am much less successful at losing weight. Being tired causes me to make poorer choices in food. I am tired and don't feel as great as I could and choose comfort foods when I know I shouldn't, and lose sight of my goals/motivation. Being tired also causes me to be more negative emotionally, which again leads to doubting myself, comfort foods or snacks that I know I don't need. Get your 8 hours of sleep!
Awhile back I read a "Secret" where someone used oatmeal for her comfort food. I really liked that. So the past 2 weeks I've been doing that, when I wanted a comfort food having oatmeal with some cinnamon and raisins in it. or a little butter, which i don't usually add. It does work, and it has solved a big problem for me. I'm going to try some with peanut butter, like she suggested.
