I am a nibbler I am learning through trial and error; grab fruit ,drink water or clean something until my yen has passed or at least subsided somewhat I have always liked to have something in my hand I am a former smoker I guess it has been 15 or 20 years since I smoked but the something in your hand has stayed when I was younger and a lot more active it did not bother me and I did not gain weight but I do now and I like(vanity) to look ok in my jeans So this is really a talk to me no one else if I can get me convinced then I will be happy

I do like some hand work but the thing that keeps my me busy is my kindle I love it , I can read play cards or check on my mail. I do some needle work when it is cool but it stays pretty nice here as I live about 35 miles from the beach and my grandchildren like to go and spend some time there . My daughter just retired and we plan to do a lot of that . She had 29 years with the feds and is now enjoying time at home

I am a smoker but I don`t smoke in the house so I don`t smoke a lot. I crochet in the house to keep my hands busy.

I don't think I will ever be able to give up nibbling...I am on Weight Watchers which you mentioned you've tried. I find it really great that I can veggies and fruits for free points...since I am an emotional these come in handy. I have tried dealing with it and not eating, but that is a hard road to tow. I have had some success, but so many years of eating ad nauseum is hard to replace, you know?

I am a nibbler, too. In fact, if a little nibble is good alot of nibbling is better.
I am an emotional eater and have a problem with portion control. Food is love.....the more the better. I have to keep a journal and no sense in lying to myself. At the end of the day I can log the amount of food and calories eaten.
Good luck with your diet!

Hi there buddy,
My new snack is grape tomatoes. They are pretty, delicious and very few points. I hate to miss a weekly WW meeting. Even though I have a scale and I have friends, the meetings keep me focused.
I have hot cereal and lots of fruit for breakfast. This keeps me full until lunch when I make sure I eat something even if I'm not hungry.
Remember peanut butter and celery from when we were kids? That snack sticks to the ribs also. (1 Tbl. goes a long way)
Keep up the good work.

Just keep substituting with healthy snacks and activity for those crazy cravings! I know when I first started exercising daily, my appetite really increased.
Do you do needlework or knitting? I knit and embroider, that keeps my hands busy.
Keep up the good work!
