So I am taking an exercise class through my school district right now, and I am really enjoying it. It is a cardio/circuit training class and it meets Monday through Thursday for three weeks. I have always enjoyed exercise, but taking a class makes me accountable and doesn't allow me to say, "I am too tired, I think I will just watch TV instead." However, I am exhausted this week...my husband is a band director, and he takes a lot of pride in his program, so we have a lot of weekends spent traveling to various honor bands, jazz competitions, etc. This past weekend we went up to our district honor band clinic/concert and it was wonderful, but I am exhausted and haven't recovered. Not to mention three pep band performances in the last two weeks (which I participate in!) and I have not been making good food choices. Which explains the nearly two pound gain last week. I do great during the day, then get home and I can't seem to get enough to eat. Any advice out there? Do I need more protein and/or fiber to feel fuller? I know this is the right place to come to, because everyone is always so helpful and supportive! Hope everyone else is seeing a more positive (negative?) number on the scale!

    I know how you feel - it's that rummage to find something to satisfy you and you just can't feel full!

    I would make sure you have balanced meals throughout the day, and aren't' starving yourself. Protein and Fiber do help. Try smaller meals, and snacks - which isn't always easy at work but it might help. Do you plan your dinners? If you knew what dinner was going to be and stuff was ready to cook - you could just start on dinner and not snack.

    Great job on the exerise class, sounds fun!
