    If i have a crappy nights sleep it is almost guaranteed that i'll be ravenous the next day, that coupled with less energy to exercise does not a good combination make.

    It's so easy to say "just get more sleep", easier said than done.. I don't have small kids and i work from home, so i can get up what ever time i like, but i cant sleep past 4:30-5am and I'm usually asleep by 8pm. I have tried so many times to stay up later, but i still wake up early. According to fitbit, i was restless 22 times last night.
    Like you Christine, I'm in control of schedule pretty much, which is why I'm able to grab a nap in the afternoon. Have you tried it?

    Yes I've tried, ive never been able to sleep during the day no matter how tired i am. I'm ok with it, I'm just grateful i don't have little kids to look after. I was a solid sleeper when my kids were young and struggled getting up in the mornings. Now that I'm able to sleep in, I cant lol

    Dropping a leg, or some arms, is an overlooked but rapid route to pounds lost

    One strategy I used was when I started analyzing my own eating habits and realized I was snacking a lot when I watched TV (especially at night) so I made it a priority to watch less or none at all and do other activities instead. It really helped reduce my mindless snacking habit. Even watching videos online or surfing the internet doesn’t make me want to snack like watching TV does!

    NVM - didn’t realize I was replying to an ancient thread. Why do people keep doing this?

    Most of the time, they're revived by a spam post that gets deleted but bumps the thread, or a new person doing a search.

    This one was revived on purpose by the OP. It's probably just my weird world view, but that makes it seem like not a zombie thread, to me. 🤷‍♀️

    Yeah for sure I see it often when a new person comes on and maybe does a search on a topic and an old thread pops up for them - but randomly reviving an old thread with no new comments or questions seems super odd to me. At any rate my reply was to someone who may not have been around for years so it was irrelevant anyway.

    This is such a helpful thread, and I had not seen it before, so am glad to have it revived.
