Hi Madmom10, welcome to SparkPeople!
3rd shift can be really tough. It does help to totally commit to switching your eating, the way Mamawalmart suggested.
Also, the Nutrition Tracker has a meal plan option. It's great, it will set up your whole days menu. And your able to swap items, for different things too.
Good luck on your weight loss journey!

and Glad to have you as part of the Spark family. Hope you take advantage of the great tools we have available for Sparkers; Nutrition and Fitness Tracker, Spark Teams, exercise videos for every level, and many great articles and recipes that can help in obtaining a healthier lifestyle. One team you might want to check out is Night Owls. When I was night shifter, I ate as if I was on day shift. I would eat a big breakfast before I went to work, then lunch half way through shift, then dinner when I came home. I never went straight to bed when I came home. I would do my workouts and my home routine before I went to sleep, paying bills, grocery shopping, things like that. Wish you continued success on your journey to a healthier you. God bless and Keep Smiling
