Food Goal Week #1

 This week, my food goal is simple.  Not to eat three hours before bed time.  This one is not hard, or is it?

I have to admit, that I look forward to a little "me snack" right after I put the kids to bed.  But what is that snack?  It is usually something sweet that you don't want the kids to eat, so you eat it when they are in bed.  Is that snack good for you or are you really hungry?  Nope, you just don't want the kids to have it.  Then why are you eating it?

Science also shows us that not eating before bed also helps digestion, sleep and other things like that.  But, we have to admit that nighttime eating is not good eating.

Are you in with me?


  1. I struggle with this too. Congratulations on being a featured vB member! I'm now following you!

  2. Congrats on being featured on VB! I'm so in the same boat with eating late at's never about hunger, but it really helps me drop weight when I don't. That's because I'm not eating ice cream, coke and pringles! Good luck!

  3. My biggest problem is eating late at night. It's so hard for me to break this habit, but I'm working on it.

  4. I'm trying to enforce this as well! I limit myself to water only! Its hard not to be tempted though!

  5. Luckily, I've been able to pull this off for the past few weeks or so :). I'm too tired to get hungry, so I just go right ahead and hit the sack!

    Congrats on being a featured vB member this week :)

  6. I wish I had read this 10 minutes ago before I ate those Newton Fruit Thins (guiltily closing the bag now)

  7. Melissa,
    My hubby wants to have ice cream every night and it drives me nuts. I go downstairs to my office so I'm not tempted. You are right, eating at night is horrible!
    Congrats on being a Featured Member of vB!!

  8. This is SUCH a great point. You're totally right. Why am I waiting until they go to bed? LOL. Okay, it's 6:45 where I am. Cease eating!
