SAY "NO" TO LATE NIGHT SNACKING -- JANUARY 2017 CHALLENGE

Tired of self-sabotaging by munching after dinner? Upset that you double your in-calories at night? Then it's not just me . To get some help (or inspire us by your good example), please join us in this challenge.

You set what you feel is late night snacking. For example, if you have extra calories left for the day, you can have a snack if it's small. Others decide not to eat at a past a certain time. It's up to you.

We go by the formula:
Me: "number indicating how many evenings you stuck to it"
LNS: "number of times late night snacks won"

Example: Me: 2 - LNS: 0 indicates I won the first two nights.

Some people also add a * to the latest number. In the example, that would be
Me: 2 - LNS: 1*
if LNS won the 3rd night.

It's as simple as that. Or as complicated, as you will discover. Nevertheless, the persistence and good results of some of our "old" members (and some people keep coming back) show that the battle is worthwhile .

You will notice some people post streaks of how many days they are free of late night snacking. This is definitely not a requirement, but if you want to do it for motivation, it works well.

Welcome!

    I'm in. Still reporting on December's challenge so will start reporting on this thread effective January 1st. My goal is no snacking after 7:30 pm.

    Thanks lamlam2013 for continuing this challenge. I found December's challenge really helped me stay on track. Only gave in twice over the holidays when we had company :)

    I'm in! I'll start on January 1st. :)
    My challenge will be no snacking after 8 pm, especially since I am usually working at that time and am used to a "little pick me up" at break. I must (and will) break this habit!

    So... Me: 0; LNS: 0

    Im in. I need to break this behavior in myself.
    Nothing after 9pm. Nothing after going to bed. No Sleepwalker-Fridge-Chocolate-Raider in the middle of the night, activities for me. Nothing to destroy my deficit. I know its this one bad behavior that would make such a tremendous difference. I was able to refrain last night. First offical log tomorrow. :)
