    I was up way to late last night for no good reason and instead of getting some zzzzzzz I got some snaaaaaacks.....I tried to keep it to healthy items however I found myself eating just to eat. These snacks also came after I stopped logging for the night which I know is not good.....I shall not beat myself up....I wear a heart rate monitor when I work out so I know that I earned a few extra cals (no excuses lol). So anyhow.....back on it I go...........logging everything that goes into my mouth today! Have a great Saturday everyone!

    Had a wine and roasted peanut binge last night... didn't log it and am moving forward today. Stocking up on chocolate low fat Greek yogurt and moving the box of wine to the basement frig in anticipation of the evenings cravings. Best of luck to us all :)

    I am a late night snacker as well. (It feels like an AA meeting). Anyway, I try to keep my calories within goal. So I try to save calories until the end of my night. I also work the night shift...so often I eat to stay awake. Having recognized this, I pre-bag my snacks and lunch which I take to work. There are so many calories in pizza, though....if you are serious about losing weight, you should try to restrict eating it to once a month. Each piece is usually around 300-350 calories per slice. Even the thin crust is 220-270 calories per piece.

    Oh I know all about the pizza. My wife and daughter really like pizza so I don't make a big deal about not having it in the house. I need to do a better job of controlling myself when it comes to that food. Thanks for the help good luck.

    Same here. Out of 80lbs loss I gained back 10lbs from late night snacking in the last 4 months and can't seem to stop no matter what I try. So I am venting here. Thanks :)

    I leave a few calories in my eating for just those later-night occasions. I had a Bigly Yuge craving for a BellVita pack last night. I took it to the chair where watching tellie, set it down and it was still there this AM. Knowing I could have it was a trick to strengthen my resolve to NOT have it. -I hope that might help.

    One thing I do do stop late night snacking is to play simple puzzle game on my phone while listen to audiobooks, I need to use both my hand thus so eating at all. It works with TV too, I half watching and half listen to the TV and help to keep me from going to the kitchen searching for food during commercial breaks.

    I have cardio machines in my living room. When an interest in snacking arises, I sometimes remember to exercise instead. That seems to get my mind off the snacking.
