I guess I missed Monday...I'm very sorry about that. But as it was a holiday weekend Monday sneaked in on me. tongue

How are we all doing with more healthy eating? I've been gaining control of my 'snacking' which is my downfall. Not as good as I want to be yet but little by little I'm fighting the urge to pop something in my mouth when I have no business doing it. My goal for the end of the week is to have the snacking thing under control. That doesn't mean no snacks at all but they must be planned and thought out first....and healthy!!

What is everyone else working on???

I am still trying to work on my snacking problem too.  I have been eating cucumbers out of the garden dipped in fat free Ranch Dressing.  Also I've been dipping them in Poppy Seed Dressing for a change.  It's a sweeter tasting dressing and seems to help my sweet tooth somewhat. 
Since greenbeans are coming in and tomatoes are just starting to get ripe, I've been eating them for lunch. 
So far I can't see any change in my weight.  I know it takes time, but I get so impatient sometimes.
God Bless!

I am working on remembering to eat frequent smaller meals.  While I am off work, it is easy for me to get to doing stuff and forget to eat or put it off until I am famished, then I binge and overeat.

My snacking has miraculously stopped late at night and I believe it is due to my weaning off of Ambien. Yes, I have read the horror stories about people binge eating and not remembering, or driving or even being intimate and having no recollection but I really didn't associate my late night binge with the Ambien, not on a conscious level anyway. I always thought it was just me and my "issues". I've been off Ambien now for two weeks, or close to it and have not had one single late night binge! That is not to say I don't have other times of the day binges, lol. Now I must add no one should stop a medication without the advice of their doctor, I did discuss it with him and weaned off per his instructions. I'm a little O/T here, but just felt the need to add this in. If you are eating at inappropriate times uncontrollably, it just might be from some medication you are taking. Some research and again, the advice of your doctor, could help. Now, I need to work on those other times of the day!
be well everyone

It has been so hot and muggy here that I can't cook properly. Eating to go foods is not good I know, but I am trying to give myself a break because of the weather. We have been snacking on cantelope and avocados though.

Have a good day all.

Hugs, Karen

I've been eating unsalted peanuts fresh from the shell instead of Kettle Corn while watching movies.

Just got back from vacation and am ready to watch what I'm eating again.

I have to admit that I ate too much of everything I shouldn't have. Ready to eat

healthy again!

Hugs, Robin

Snacking is a HUGE problem for me. I've decided that I have no will power, and the only way to avoid snacking on junk food is just not to buy it and bring it in the house.

I used to say I was buying it for my daughter, but she has gained a couple of pound this summer (going from 108 to a whopping 111 rolleyes ) and doesn't want to continue the path either. I'm not a very good example, *sigh*

My goal is to try not to bring junk food into the house.
