Last Call


As of this morning, in an effort to reign in some of the awful habits that we have developed in the last few months, Dave & I have instituted a last call for food: eight o' clock. 

We chose eight because that is the kids' bedtime.  I won't eat crap while little eyes are watching & if I'm really legitimately hungry after eight, we've allowed ourselves the option of "in emergency, eat produce." 

Being that this is the first night & my stomach is angrily protesting the rule change, I find myself wanting to gnaw on my own flesh & wondering just how many Weight Watchers PointsPlus Values my left hand has.  It has to be light meat, right?  Like a chicken wing?  One PointsPlus per ounce? 

I tried to distract myself with a little web surfing, but as far as I can tell, all of the Pinners that I follow are hungry right now too.  Pinning food on Pinterest is a form of cyber bullying.

I'm going to bed.


  1. Bahaha, love this post and I am right there with you! Although I don't usually have a huge binge at night, I definitely do eat after 8 (even 10 or 11)! This is the hardest habit to break of all of the new things I'm trying to implement. We are STRONGER than all of this - I'm hanging in there with you :)

  2. That is a fabulous idea! I may steal it myself, although I'm sure the first few nights I would be the same as you! And my husband would probably cheat and snack after I went to bed... :P

  3. I can totally relate to this last night...same thing! I went to Pinterest hoping to escape my cravings and everyone was pinning food! Love the idea! I think I'll steal it too!

  4. I eat a snack around 830 but I make sure it is Chobani greek yogurt, so yummy and full of protein too, the pineapple flavor is divine! Your body needs a little something to sustain you overnight, just my thoughts.
