5/7/2006 - One More
Saturday, May 13, 2006
I really do have one other trouble spot that I want to work on in conjunction with getting to bed earlier and getting more sleep. It's midnight snacking.
I'm talking about that 3 am walk down the stairs to the kitchen where I snack on something - usually some kind of cookie (but not often), a 100 calorie snack pack, or a handful of nuts. I can down almost 200 calories and on occasion more and that really cuts into my calories I can eat during the day. Most of the time I can work in those calories but sometimes I have to cut things out that I was going to eat to accommodate them.
I want to get up at 3 am, go to the bathroom and then go to bed and not come down the stairs to eat. I get angry at myself for being "weak" - what can I do?? How do I stop this?
One good thing is that I have cut way back on this type of snacking - I just need to cut it out all the way.
