So, I'm back on the wagon to eat better, exercise more regularly and lose some (or a lot) of weight. I do OK eating wise at work and I tend to drink a lot of water during the day. My real problems come in at home...maybe because I have access to food here more easily than at work or maybe it is just a long ingrained habit...I don't know for sure what it is..but I need help. What do I do to avoid eating at home or at least snacking mindlessly or late at night? Any tips would be welcome. I know I need to start tracking what I'm eating...so I'm going to start doing that again, but any other tips would be great. I'm not big into crash diets or completely eliminating food from my life because for me that is just not sustainable. I want to be able to drink a beer, have some ice cream, etc when I want to. I don't want to feel like I'm in a food prison, because I know that will just make me want those things even more. I have a significant amount of weight I want to lose, but it isn't about being skinny I just want to feel better about myself and most importantly be around for my kids and husband for a long, long time. So have at it...what should I be doing to get on the right track??
