No More Late Night Snacking in 2020 -- July 2020 Challenge

feliciabootsfeliciaboots Member Posts: 186 Member Member Posts: 186 Member
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!

*thanks @lamlamsmakeover for starting this and from who I shamelessly stole the introduction*

    My goal is no snacking after 8pm. If that fails, my “hard line” is not exceeding my daily calorie limit because of it.

    June: 85% 🥈

    Going for the gold (90% or higher) in July!

    Hi! I tried this challenge briefly in June but stopped during an odd health issue. I’m fine and here for July! I’m looking forward to it! 🙂

    My July LNS rule - No consuming of calories between 8 PM & 6 AM, so water is fine. June: 66%, Best: 74%

    Me: 2 (+2)
    LNS: 1 (+1)
    Streak: 1 (+1)

    July 1st I was good, July 2nd I was invited to a friends place after 9 PM for a drink (so obviously!) and I was good last night!

    It was a struggle tonight. But if didn’t give in, even though I did snack too much during the day.
