I need 3 snacks a day!

Wow, I am glad I got through yesterday. I went to bed at 9:30 on Tuesday night because I was tired and I had to get up an extra half hour earlier to get to a meeting. Then it was my TOM, and I was having a rough time with it. I hate feeling tired, sore and hungry....all of which I felt yesterday. The one thing that really helped me out is that I had 2 snacks yesterday. One between breakfast and lunch and one between lunch and dinner. The one between lunch and dinner really helped out a lot. I had a hot chocolate with lf honey graham crackers and I immediately felt better. I have been having hot chocolate almost every night lately...I love it because it makes me nice and warm and relaxed. Anyway, I was reminded once again how important it is for me to have at least 2 snacks a day. If I don't and my thinking is.."save the points for a larger dinner"....I eat so much more in the evening. This is a bad habit that needs fixing, because if I have my snacks I am not crazy ravenous at dinnertime and then don't need to have an eating free for all in the evening. It is so common sense..but I just can't get it through to my brain permanently.

I've lately found tactical snacking to be a good thing. A quick bag of Sun Chips out of the vending machine can actually save the day. I can think of a lot worse things to eat than that!

p.s. Looks like your graph is pointed the right direction!

amen to the snackage..it is so intellectually clear to me that when I DONT do it my 'banked' calories are there for dinner but I, too, end up going above and BE--YOUND.
