I use the tv just for background noise

Totally guilty of this. After dinner we tend to crash in front of the t.v. for some down time before bed. Since starting this program I have curbed my snacking during this time BUT my husband has not. He eats 1-2 snacks even though he just finished his meal. I DO get tempted but never cave! Lately around 8-9 pm I will make my cottage cheese and fruit snack and this totally satisfies me. In the warmer months there are outdoor activities plus it stays brighter out later in the evening... much easier to be motivated. Perhaps we should take some of these suggestions before my husband needs to buy a bigger size in clothing ;)

Watching less tv and getting in even little exercise can make a big difference!

My TV is like white noise and I am not hooked as some are. I also exercise during shows and the commercials. Sometimes, the commercials are more interesting. We need to be more mindful of our time, SparkFriends!

I agree the TV be a huge time waster.
( I have a few things I like to watch but I tell myself only if a quality exercise was done first and all my ducks are in a row!)

My biggest couch-potato draw? A good book! Once I've got my nose in a book, a bomb could go off, and I wouldn't wrest my attention away from it! Housework? Nah; do it later! Horseback riding? Whom are you kidding?? WORKOUT??! HAH!

TV is not the problem, self-discipline is. Exercise during commercials.

I have given up TV for 2 weeks now, and I'm incredibly surprised at how much better life is. I used to come how from work, and sit in front of the TV. And, I didn't really enjoy what i was watching. I've had a great day today, without the TV, and I hope that I can keep it going. Today, actually felt like I was on a vacation some place, where I wouldn't have watched TV anyways.

What I REALLY hate? When people have the TV on and don't even watch it, but spend their time texting on their stupidphones instead!
