Lighten up blog

Today I was hungry. I have been eating like crazy the last few weeks but today I really tried to eat sensibly. The result? I felt hungry. I am happy that it was not unbearable or accompanied by a headache. I need to find a balance of good eating and hunger. I do not want to be cranky or testy with my family because I am on a diet. I need some good snacks to sustain me in between the main meals.

I think one of my weaknesses is stress eating. The hardest time for me is right before dinner and late at night. These are usually the times when I am tired from a long day and stressed about all there is to do. I turn to snacking for comfort and distraction. I hope that recognizing this will be half the battle of overcoming it!
