    No eating after 8pm every day but if my net calories are too low after hockey some nights, I'm ok with having something small that fits my macro goals.

    Me: 1
    LNS: 0

    For times like this it helps to keep in mind the reason behind the LNS - to avoid adding extra calories you don't need. If your net calories are too low, to stay healthy you need to break the LNS rule. And your health is more important than any rule.


    Thank you for your support, I agree! Last month I had moments where I struggled between my LNS 'rule' and net calories. I've never been one to do much undereating (I am here to lose weight, after all!) but I also understand the nature of the guesstimate factor of exercise calories. I have been aiming for a happy balance and eat back about half of the exercise calories. It's been working so far! :)

    What's your trigger food?
    When I was snacking a lot at night, I used to eat a bunch of the Snyders Pretzel pieces honey mustard.

    Hubby bought a huge BJs size bag of it, and it felt like it was my crack. I physically had to move away from it.
    I'm going to bed early; already brushed my teeth and put in my night-time mouth guard.

    Tomorrow's another day.

    Yesterday was a really good day - got the all clear from my doctor in my annual checkup, ran 3.5 miles (first time in a good six months) and didn't go crazy on the food! PLUS I'm down like 5 lbs from the beginning of the year!

    @Feliciaboots You just have good news all around today! Congrats on all 3! I know you were glad to be able to run again after a hiatus. I took a much longer hiatus from running after a bad case of plantar fasciitis. I’m back at it these days, but it’s definitely jogging for me, not running these days! I’m thrilled to be able to do it though!

    And losing 5 pounds since Jan 1 is AMAZING!!🎉

    Thanks doll! I am just realizing how stressed I have been for so long and with things coming around as they are hopefully it continues! TBH the biggest things I did were give up coffee and soda pop (unless it's extremely rare occasions) and severely limited my alcohol consumption.

    5 pounds is just the start - my goal is to be back to 210 lbs by the end of the year!

    Hey @feliciaboots !
    Congratulations!!
    My husband dropped ~ 28lbs by cutting out all soda & alcohol!
    Then COVID hit & we completely stopped eating any restaurant food. Whenever did takeout &still don’t.
    He dropped further. Normal BMI.
    Never counted a calorie or weighed a gram 🤣
    218 to173. -45lbs (which neither of us thought he had to lose TBH)

    He’s a lifelong <10 min runner, which he finds more enjoyable now that he’s lighter!

    I’m Envious as I track all my food, etc, but different genetics, modeling by our parents, etc.

    PS He also now limits caffeinated coffee to one per day!

    I had to Comment as such a similar approach!
