Clear your house of baked goods and other things you can not resist. If you can't do that put these foods in places that you can not see them. Because once you start eating something you should not eat or you eat too much it is easy to just throw in the towel That reminds me of something I got from one of the leaders in a Weight Watchers class. The instructor handed out little pieces of cloth that represented towels. I have kept that little towel in my purse for about 10 years now, and I have never given up on myself since.
