Hungry After Dinner

I absolutely hate it when I get hungry a few hours after I eat a meal. Was my meal just a snack?!

What did I eat? Well, I ate a meal I often eat that usually leaves me very satisfied.

So, I’m wondering if a skimpy (snack-like, perhaps) lunch caught up with me after dinner. I wasn’t hungry at lunch! Seems odd, but… If you can have a sleep deficit that catches up to you and crashes you out, then why not a hunger deficit that catches up to you eventually?

Ignoring the hunger is a bad idea. It just grows into an angry beast that will eat the pantry whole.

My plan is to eat a Greek yogurt. I’m over, but at least I’m not WAY over.


Brand Matters

I told my sister that I was surprised and totally pleased that the Austin Cheese Peanut Butter Crackers (6 to a pack) were only 4 points. That’s a decent snack food choice!

We went to the grocery store after our WW meeting. Just to be sure I wasn’t remembering wrong, we scanned the other brands of cheese peanut butter crackers. They came back 7 points! Wow.

I got home and double-checked my Austin crackers, and they are indeed 4 points. So, brand matters. So glad we didn’t assume!

Incidentally, I got my 5 pound star today! I’m definitely on my way now.
