1500 calories is almost half a pound. It is easier to say "no" to 1/2 pound than to going out to eat.

Lunch at the Chinese Dim Sum place... probably close to 1500.

10:30 am - I wanted to nibble. I thought to myself "what is it that I want". I hadn't drank much water so I drank some water and was satisfied. Later on I wanted a scone. I told myself I could wait until my next meal. I soon forgot about the scone.
1:20 pm - Once again I wanted to nibble. What did I want? I wasn't hungry or thirsty. To distract myself I came to the computer. hmm I forgot about wanting to nibble and realize it was just a thought that I didn't have to obey. So many things that I keep forgetting. I am not now hungry and I forgot about wanting to nibble. I think I was just bored.
Each time I give into mindless snacking, I know I will indulge in at least 200 calories. No wonder I am overweight. So far I have said "no" to about 450 calories.

I am not the calorie countnig type when it comes to what I eat on daily basis, but I know for a fact that based on the nutritent info on the package of a bar of dark chocolate that I eat, I saved 210 calories by trashing 1/2 the bar. I normally eat an entire bar in less than 10 min.
since i don't count calories, i can't say "no" to them. I am more into the nutrients since i don't make my "calorie" count on a daily basis. Yes, i am fueling my body enough

I said "no" to another snack attack. It helped today to think of mindless eating in terms of calories not eaten. If I keep this up, I will start getting trimmer.

I said no to the following;
2 kfc fried chicken wings- 150 cal each. 1 long john silvers hushpuppy- 60 calories An extra serving of brown rice at dinner- an additional 218 calories. As well as the additional approx. 1200-1600 calories from sweet tea daily. (This week i have made my challenge to drink NO tea, and NO soda. )

I said no to a cookie earlier - 60 calories I had a little snack and wanted to nibble more (would have been a mini binge). I wasn't hungry so food would not have satisfied me and I would have kept eating until I was stuffed. And of course it would have been high calorie foods (sweet delights). Instead I went out and worked in the garden. I was out there 90 min and burned 523 cal - www.healthstatus.com/cgi-bin/calc/calculat or.cgi So instead of eating at least 300 cal (a mini binge) I burned 523 cal. 350 cal = 1/10th of a lb. No wonder I am overweight as I mindlessly nibble throughout the day.
