Hi! I'm Ashley. I joined Sparkpeople back in 2007 after talking to a dietitian at my college wellness center. With the support of other Sparkers, along with finding a fitness routine that worked for me and eating the right foods and portions, I got down to my lowest weight since high school (137 lbs) for my wedding in 2011. Annnd, then my weight went right back up. I'm ready to find my happy weight and work on maintaining it by restoring the necessary balance in my life once again.

    i only eat after 8pm rarely since i've joined sparkpeople. and if i do eat after 8 it's usually a bowl of cereal. late night eating used to be one of my biggest problems. mostly because when i ate late night it was something awful like a fatty shake or some crappy fast food. i changed that and i found that eating regularly through out the day helps curb late night eating. so make sure you get breakfast in. heh. : )
