NO MORE LATE NIGHT SNACKING IN 2020 -- OCTOBER 2020

If you haven't seen this challenge before, let me brief you about it:

We started this thinking: "Looks like I'm self-sabotaging by munching/bingeing after dinner" or "Mhmm... I'm kinda doubling my in-calories at night".

What you have to do to change the way you feel about your eating at night:

- decide what late night snacking means to you (could be either bingeing, if you're inclined to it or simply eating anything at all after a certain time; some may find that having a healthy snack after dinner is perfectly alright and be upset only when they go overboard)

- report in the thread. We post by the formula:
Me: X vs. LNS: Y,
where X is "how many evenings you stuck to it" and Y "the times late night snacks won". You may want to also add a * to the latest number. Feel free to also post streaks of how many days (in a row) you've managed to be free of late night snacking

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!

Have I touched a cord? Then: You are welcome!

    September I took time away from MFP due to renovations and some significant stressors. But it's October, so back at it!

    I picked up Subway on the way home so we could eat quickly and I could get outside and finish a few projects before big brother. It kind of worked out differently but I'm pretty happy with what I got done. Now to push and finish a bunch of things this weekend!

    My goal is no snacking after 9pm. If that fails, my “hard line” is not exceeding my daily calorie limit because of it.

    June: 85% 🥈
    July: 84% 🥈
    August: 94% 🥇
    September: 86% 🥈

    Lost the gold last month in the final hour due to a fit of despair over the scale not moving. Finally saw a drop. Determined to fight my way back into the right mentality. This month is going to be rough, as we’ll be traveling for 1/3 of it, but I’m here.
