    Planning ahead! I was going to a celebration dinner so I ate light for breakfast and lunch to have extra calories for eating out.

    Having safe snacks around worked well when I got home for work and was really hungry and had to make food. It makes it easier to not eat something I shouldn't.

    You took the words out of my mouth!

    I experienced both of these today! So I pre-logged my dinner (after eating breakfast and lunch) but was STARVING in the afternoon. But, because I had planned ahead and brought healthy snacks to work (I keep a small fridge under my desk), and because I knew I had extra room in my calories today because I had logged ahead, I could get my snacks on with no worries!

    Planning ahead is one of the best strategies!

    periodically with a broccoli and chicken day/or salad lunch day I have a bag of chips with lunch. I eat half and wrap up the other half and give it to co worker to hide. If it stays at my desk I will get hungry and eat it. I believe in snacking healthy snacking. I have almonds, craisins, carrot stick, cantaloupe, fiber one cinnamon bars, low calories and I bring 4 to 5 at work. I interchange it with lots of water. This works for me. I even time my snacking so I don't eat them all at 230pm and starving at 445pm. I just limit the chips. Have it with a healthy lunch later in the week.

    What worked for me today was declining a dinner out and opting to cook a healthy meal at home.

    I'm recommitting to my health today, and one thing that worked well for me was planning to split my calories into 3 meals and 1-2 snacks.

    I'm going to try to update this thread daily so that I remember to capture the positives. I invite all of you to do the same.
    I tried optifast but just couldn't do it Now i'm following what they sugest when finished meals 3 a day at 300 calories. Plus two 150 calorie snacks. I'm on my third day and finding it hard to get all my calories. Good luck to you.
