Lose It! I Love This Tool!

I've been using a fantastic program to log calories and exercise called Lose It! http://www.loseit.com/  Thank you Sharon for turning me on to this fantastic website! 

I noticed I often eat 2/3 - 3/4 of my daily calories after 4pm.

I sometimes eat 1/3 - 1/2 my daily calories in snacky foods. 

So, going forward this week, I'm trying to:

1) Make sure 2/3 of my calories are consumed before 5pm.  That means less night snacking and figuring out what I need to do during the day to decompress instead of waiting until night to flop out with a bag of sunflower seeds and popcorn to unwind.

2) Replace some of my typical snacky foods with other choices.  Like what you ask?  Aforementioned sunflower seeds and, get ready for it... chocolate-covered gummy bears.  Or really, gummy anything.  My kryptonite.

And an update:  I've lost 49 pounds since December 20, 2010 and am now under 200 pounds.
