Evening muncher

Evening muncher

Hi, I have just joined this site hoping I can spend some of my evenings giving and receiving support from people who like me have a weight problem, night times are the worst eating through boredom, I really need to get motivated to lose some weight before my operation, because afterwards I won't be able to do much for 8 weeks, at the moment I do low impact aerobics twice a week and swim as much as I can fit in., all this will have to stop until I am fully recovered which scares me for the amount of weight I might put on., I joined a slimming club about 2 months ago I lost 5 lbs and cannot seem to get anymore off its so disheartening when you know how good you have been and the scales don't show it, I have decided to look at my portions more closely and calorie count with my fitness pal app, (after reading the NHS website on weight control ) I think I will invest the money I am saving into a good pair of scales,

Good Luck to all of us

If you think the eating in the evening is boredom how about something to occupy your mind. TV is no good with all those breaks just designed for getting a snack.

I have a tendency to boredom eat. If I do I try to limit myself to very small healthy snacks such as a small tomato, a few raw nuts, a small amount of 0% total fat yoghurt with a few berries. Or try and distract,myself with some form of activity.

It would be better not to snack find some fab herbal tea, and enjoy that in the evenings

I was an evening snacker until I started on a Low Fat Diet (see Dietdoctor.com). You should have a look at this.
