Cut Me Off

Going from 185lbs to XXX (like I’m going to tell everyone how much I weigh! Pu-leese!) didn’t happen over night.  It also didn’t happen by eating at night. 

 

It seems like such a small thing.  But I can tell you, changing this one little habit was huge. 

 

I stopped eating after 9:00pm.  Completely.  No mid-night snack, no late-night dinner.  Nine o’clock was cut off time. 

 

This helped big time in speeding my metabolism.  I was able to work off the calories I had consumed that day without adding more or sleeping on a full stomach. 

 

Try it.  It works wonders!

  • It use to be that a woman’s age was the super secret knowledge about women that we weren’t supposed to ever find out. (grin)

  • Theresa says:

    That is great advice. I as an older woman have lowered the cut off to 7pm unless it is a special occasion. I am loving this!!

  • Nicole says:

    I am with Theresa I have to do 7 or 8! I am on day two!!

  • Hmmm… I hear this all the time. I took the opposite approach when I lost 35 lbs in 3 months. I would always eat a very light (and healthy) snack before I went to bed. An apple or some grapes, or some chocolate chips or some pepperoni…

    Seemed like it kick-started my metabolism and kept it going through the night when I wasn’t eating anything.

    Then again, maybe I could have lost 50 lbs in 3 months if I hadn’t done that… hmmm….

    I can really relate! There were several key things that helped drive me to success and down 6 dress sizes. First, I had to learn to see myself as God sees me. Every morning I read words of affirmation from the Bible. Second, I stopped drinking 6 Dr. Peppers a day, and switched to Diet Coke instead. (Looking back, I wish I had chosen water because I’m addicted to Diet now!) Third, I set a cut-off time to 3 hours before bedtime. Fourth, I fasted. Now I don’t recommend starving yourself or becoming anorexic. But one day every week I would fast. During this time I prayed for God to help me break my addiction to food as a comfort source. Every time after I fasted, it helped me realize that I had been eating unconsciously. I ate when I was bored, depressed, happy, awake…Anytime was an excuse to eat. Food never turned me away. When I finally turned to Christ for comfort, that’s when results happened. Changing your lifestyle and bad habits is not an easy road, but it is well worth the trip.
