You are wrong about eating being out of your control. You are the only one who can control your unhealthy eating. It is all mind over matter but if you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

Throw out that food and replace it with fresh fruits and veggies. A Fugi apple is just as sweet as a cookie and much healthier for your heart and arteries. emoticon

Lifestyle change number one: Throw out the food. The starving children in West Crotchitch don't want that chocolate cake or those cookies or even the sundried tomatoes in olive oil.

I promise.

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.
