Hi everyone 😀I just signed up so any tips welcome. My names Sue, I'm 47 and have been hypo thyroid for nearly 20 years. I became a full time student in 2014 and this seemed to coincide with menopause starting so there's the double whammy easier to gain weight coupled with sitting on my butt most of the day. I walk pretty much everywhere so I clock an average of around 5 miles a day but I'm still gaining weight and it's starting to hurt. I have a generally very healthy diet as I make everything myself from scratch and aim to eat 10 portions of veg a day. So I'm already doing what most plans tell us to do. So what's the problem you ask? Evenings. Why must I pick at crap all evening? ?!! I start off with maybe a banana or apple, then perhaps a chunk of cheese and some bread, then go fridge raiding for leftovers (there's usually a small pot of casserole or chicken curry and rice in there somewhere). This is usually between 8 & 10 or thereabouts. In fact I eat as much in the evening as I do all day! It's a bad habit and I'm hoping you guys can help me break it.
