Note to Self.....
Sheryl, You can't keep almonds in the house.
Short of inventing a FOOD SAFE
that will dole out no more than 2 oz snack packs a day.....
and I know you took pains to portion them out into 1 oz snack bags
....but .....girl....forget the damn almonds.
Yours Truly
The Scale,

    If I buy roasted, salted almonds... forget it! It's a trigger. But when I buy raw almonds (I soak them to germinate them for the nutrients to be more bio-available), I don't overeat them. They're not a trigger.

    Good for you getting rid of a trigger! Getting it out of your sight and house is the way to go.

    I so ear you. I love almonds. I really struggle to keep eating in portion, because they're "good for you". Except in large quantities I guess!!!

  I love them, too, plus almond milk, almond butter, almond meal flour and almonds with spices on them in little cans. They are healthy but hard to resist.

    But Almonds are so good for you! However, I do agree it is tough to eat only 2 oz.

I always have nuts, almonds, pecans, walnuts, in the house and eat them from a ittle bowl as a snack. (ok, sometimes I throw some semi-sweet chocolate chips in there too, thereby satisfying 2 cravings at once. sue me.)

Nuts are one of those things that are so satisfying to eat and they help me make it to dinner time. I don't think I can give them up.

Maybe I better start measuring them again, though, as I suspect I have allowed portion creep to occur.

    There are a number of things I can't allow in my house. Besides the obvious (cakes, cookies, etc.) there is also marshmallows or marshmallow cream (don't know why I like that stuff, it's nothing but sugar). Peanut butter is another. And of course breads of any kind! The only thing I can keep and be reasonable with is the low carb tortillas, and the only reason I eat any of them is because they are high in fiber and low in calories and net carbs.

    I saw this on TV where they were making fun of this, breading cats. Poor cats!

    I eat way below my calories and still do not lose another ounce. Spark says i eat too little but I am thinking low carbs is a DRASTIC step to take. I must be in denial .Thanks Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    For me it's macadamia nuts. You would think that at almost $8 a jar I could control myself as I'm not Warren Buffet but I can finish the jar if not restrained. LOL.

    You know, after getting rid of many of my habits/addictions, I ask myself, "So, what's left to eat?" Just raw, I guess.
Another weekly weigh-in shows no loss
from last week. Yes, I know the scale
doesn't rule, but I've been killing myself
exercising and eating amazingly healthy.
No reward for all my effort.

    Well, you're doing the right thing. There may be a time when you can re-introduce them, but if the portion control isn't working (putting them in baggies) it seems like the best choice for now.

**SIGH** The things we do for our scale!

    I'm the same way with all things junk food. They can not be in the house at all or I go crazy.
