My dh and I are working crazy hours these days... he leaves around noon and get home around 4:30 the NEXT morning... and I work days or evenings and sometimes I'm getting home around 2:30-3:30...
One thing to remember is that lack of sleep DOES affect weightloss adversely! My dh is always getting flack about his hours from COD and when he started getting up even earlier to exercise, I demanded that he keep a couple of days to sleep LATE and get rest.
Also, like the others said, drink your water throughout the entire day. Munch on something or eat something every couple of hours. DH was told to eat the starches early in the shift along with the heavier foods. So instead of eating "meals", he spreads his food out throughout the many hours. He also sometimes saves a rice cake for snacking on late because they really are next to nothing! And one more thing, if you're driving home and you're sleepy... don't reach for caffeine - reach for cold water! They told him cold water will keep you energized as well with out the lingering affects of caffeine.
Welcome back and hang in there. I know you can do this!!!
This is my year!
2008, the year of LOST WEIGHT!
Hugs and blessings,
