Laura you sound like you got a plan on your weight loss. Compliments are a great ego booster. Every time I get one I feel great. You'll get to goal by January 1 if not sooner. Hope you can solve your hair loss problem. Have a great weekend.

Well, all I have to say is it is so easy to get off track and so hard to get back on! Two, three, four days of night time snacking..one day of staying on program...next night overindulging....back on program the next...back to overindulging on snacks the next night....Finally on program two days in a row and I feel in control again . But, I know how easy it can be too say "just one more night!". 9:00 pm and my mind says " time for snacking!" Weight is up and I have my monthly weigh in on Friday but moved it to Monday (hoping the scale will go down a bit more). I have such a sweet tooth and I know that I need to get a handle on it. I bought some Detour protein bars at Costco that I am replacing my Anytime Bars with and I think I may use that as my last snack of the day (they taste as good as a candy bar!)  Although for some reason I went through a bag of Tortilla Chips in 3 nights and usually I don't crave chips.... At this point I need to try and see what works in helping me stay away from eating at night..  I am dealing with stress by eating the wrong foods and I acknowledge that and know that the things that are causing me to be stressed will not be going away any time soon so I better find other ways to deal with them...

Laura I think after being on the program so long that when you get to your goal, you can't wait to eat something you haven't for a while. I'm starting to think that way and I'm 2 pounds to goal. Are you still writing everything down? That will help to keep yourself in control. I plan on writing it down and using my fitness pal but I will be a little lenient and splurge once in a while. I may order JC food occasionally since there are some good items that I like. It takes a while to adjust and each person is different.

I find going on these forums and reading what everybody says and helping others keeps me on track. Laura keep in touch. Think of something else to do when you get that nighttime urge to go off the plan. Do something you like to do and after a while you won't feel hungry. What I do sometimes is fix myself hot, black tea. I've found that the hot tea is very calming. There are times when you think you want food but all you need is something to drink like water. Keep a picture of yourself when you were heavy on the fridge and anywhere else you keep food.

You are right..I went crazy eating things I hadn't had for over a year...like the tortilla chips. Once a got a taste..forget it!
I am trying to drink water or even a cup of coffee.I'm.not a tea drinker. It has helped.reading old threads under Maintenance and other forums issue helpful too. Playing lots of Words with Friends...just avoiding those cravings any way I can.
I also have been keeping track of all I eat, tracking calories and making sure I get in my dairy, protein, veggies and fruit in..getting starches in is never a problem! Thanks for your encouraging words. And Congrats on being 2 lbs from goal! So happy for you!

Thank you Laura. Even if you are not a tea drinker there must be some hot local/nocal drink that would be soothing and calming. Herb tea, which is not "real" tea comes in different flavors and doesn't taste like tea. My favs are orange, raspberry, mint, peach. I've been wanting to play Words with friends but had trouble getting on it. I've played Wordfeud. Maybe we can play the one you like. I get cravings too for ice cream. I need to keep the local kind on hand but the other has the flavors I like. I used to binge when I got stressed or down. Now I can control myself. I'll have a little and can stop myself. Usually a little taste is all I need. I make cakes and cookies for George and of course his meals. I might nibble a little and of course when I bake I'll scrape the bowl.
