I have had to get past the starving children thing. If it isn't healthy for me, it isn't healthy for them either. At least that is what I tell myself. I have really cut down on what I buy and try to keep only healthy things around the house.

I have not necessarily thrown food out, but when it comes time to "replace" it I read lables and try to go for healthier options. I know there are certain foods that I cannot have in my house because I have no control - one of the main ones being chips. Love chips and who stops at a one ounce serving?

I always want to finish all the food in the house before I begin, hate throwing out food...starving children in China, India, etc. You know, what every mom told us. I was always very literal. Now I really do want to lose weight change my lifestyle, even though I am older. I want to be active for a long time. I am going to try and stop baking, I have no control if the food is in the house. I usually bake when I feel like eating something sweet, not for other people or for special events. I hoped to give away a chocolate cake, but was undermined by circumstances beyond my control so 2-3 pieces later,it still sits in the kitchen. Arrrggghhh.
