Sleeping Helps You Lose Weight


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

After daily weighing for a while, I've really noticed that I lose weight after a good night's sleep. So to avoid night time eating, DH & I go to bed earlier. We say, "Off to lose some weight" as we go to bed. I used to hate going to bed, now I am happy to take myself off.

This helps with night time eating, too. If you want to eat at night after dinner, consider going to bed instead. It seems drastic, but I find it works really well.

    I am a big snacker late at night. I think the positive message of "off to lose some weight" may help me get myself to bed!

    Absolutely can attest to sleep connection with weigh loss and gain. I lose when I get 7 hours of good sleep and I gain or hold steady when I stay up past 10:30pm and get up by 5am. Good strategy to go to bed before the late round of hunger sets in.
