I Could Be 20lbs. Lighter If I Didn't Snack!

Okay, okay maybe not 20 lbs. lighter but I would love to see how much weight I could loose it I could STOP MY LATE NIGHT SNACKING!

I am sure we are all guilty to some degree of sneaking a snack before bed.  Having that after dinner meal, if that is even what they are called.  I honestly wish I could get through an entire week without snacking after supper.  I know I CAN do it...I just have chosen NOT to do it.

For instance, when we go on vacation I actually loose weight.  Why?  Because I do not have access to food like I do at home.  Anytime I am away from home on vacation or visiting friends or family I loose at least 1 or 2 pounds.  If only I had better control at home.

I know one quick and easy fix would be for me to go to bed at 9pm.  Well, I know that will never happen.  Scratch's just now who I am.  Hoot..Hoot I am a night owl.  I believe I have 2 choices.

  1. Put a lock on the pantry and refrigerator. ( that's going to happen.  NEXT!) 
  2. GET SOME DAMN WILLPOWER!!  (Okay...this I can try?)
I mean seriously!!  How hard can it be to just not snack?!?  Can you?  Take tonight for instance.  I felt it was necessary to have a few chili cheese chips with cheese.  Yes, you heard me correct.  I don't do the light snacks.  I go full throttle and hit it hard.  

I guess one good thing I can take from this is I don't gain any weight.  Weight gain or not it is not healthy to eat so late, plus I do not want my daughter thinking it is "okay" to snack late at night all the time.  Makes me think even more what if....What if I stopped the snacking?  Would I loose a few?  Would I feel better in the morning?  I think I will honestly give it a try.  

I don't want to say the ole' "Oh, I will start it next week."  So...I am going to start tomorrow.  No more late night snacking for me!  Damn...I am nervous.  Wish me luck!!  
Pin It!

  2. Hi Julie!! Thanks for stopping by and following through the Friday Chaos Blog Party!! I'm now your newest GFC follower too :)

    I always get hungry after dinner but am always able to resist eating more unless there's ice cream. Which there usually is lol.

    Have a great weekend :)

    1. Oh man..I just had ice cream this week! Well, tonight I start my "no late night snacking" I better get my ice cream fix in early. lol

  3. Found you on Friday Chaos. Happy to be here, and am your latest GFC and linky follower. :)

    Late night snacking has become the norm for me because I do my work while the kids are sleeping. Wish like you, that I didn't gain weight. -___- :)

    Good luck w/the new goal!

    1. I didn't make it too far on my goal. lol I had a night out with some friends, had a few drinks and it is so hard to come home and not want to eat a little something after drinking. Officially starting tonight! HA!

  4. I am the same way. I swear I eat half my calories for the whole day after dinner!

    I try to limit it to one snack and then brush and floss my teeth really well. The fact that my teeth are nice and clean makes me not want to snack anymore (sort of).

  5. Thank you so much for visiting and following my blog! I am so excited to follow you. I was born and raised in the Bootheel of MO!! Love those Cardinals. Can't wait to visit more. :)
