my go to snack foods when I get hungry (especially at night)

I try water first, wait twenty minutes, do something different, and then if I am still hungry I grab dense calorie foods like almonds, sunflowers and craisens to eat. I use the STOP program , I Select, Taste, Observe, Pause while eating. This way I can really enjoy my portion. Like always I stay faithful to staying within my calorie limit. emoticon

Snacks at the ready.

I keep a small tray of measured snacks in the fridge for those moments when "I just have to eat!" Right now I have a bag with a few carrots and celery sticks, 2 bags of walnuts (1/4 cup each), and 2 packages of roast beef (2 oz each). I found some mini bagels at 100 calories each and have cheese sticks on hand. This is keeping me sane, somewhat!! emoticon

Seltzer Water

I love the fizzy feel of soda pop, but didn't like the calories and nasty ingredients. I was also trying to lower my sodium. I switched to seltzer water, which I can flavor with real fruit juice like lemon and lime. This has saved me money, improved my health, and I even like the taste of it quite a bit more!

Why you must track your Food

As I age, I clearly don't know how much to eat to stay within a healthy weight. Tracking my food keeps me accountable. With so many people overweight, we're just stupid in our portions and calorie intake. Tracking gives me a frame of reference. It keeps me on course.

Stop humanizing my food!

Food does not have vocal cords. It cannot 'call' me from the cupboard/freezer/fridge. Why should I 'love' certain foods - they don't love me back. Once I put food in its proper context, I can enjoy it, but not give it unnecessary power over me.
