I agree with everyone telling you to not bring those items into the house! It is hard this time of year as my husband and kids feel I am depriving them of the holidays since I'm not baking cookies and cakes like I used to....So I suggest they go out to get those items.

Note to myself-
Eat smaller portions and more vegetables!

For me, the first two weeks were just getting used to the tracking of food. I set myself no expectations. I was just trying the program. That actually gave me a great start. The feedback taught me that I really wasn't correctly aware of what and how I ate previously, even though I've been working on being careful for two years. The actual written goals and daily tracking are showing in my weight loss. I gave myself two years to get to my main goal weight. I set smaller goals of 5 to 10 pounds along the way. Maybe this could help others.

Don't bring any foods into the house that you are addicted too.Keep fresh fruit and cut up raw vegetables on hand to munch on.You need to break the habit of eating sweets-sugar is addicting.

Love will cover a multitude of sins.Enjoy every blessing God has given you !

Welcome!

I know that if there are sweets in the house, I will eat them. So I've stopped buying them. I do have my popcorn fix. I do air popcorn and am occasionally bad and add the butter.

But it is not bad (after a while you get used to it) when it has nothing on it. Maybe have a few pieces of raw nuts. The protein helps. I keep them in my desk so I don't reach for the cookies and candies that are around the office.

Also, take a look under our general discussion area. We have some ideas there.

Hey guys - I'm new to this team. I was actually on the sparkteam page for 20 Somethings with 29-50 lbs to lose when I saw a link to this team. It was like you guys dropped into my lap, and it was so needed!
See, here's my big problem/trouble - My husband and I are munchers, dessert-aholics, sweet-tooths...all of the above. I am able to stay within my calorie range during the week, but come the weekend my husband and I both go WAY overboard. I know we shouldn't, but the problem is I don't know how to change. We love cheesecake and chocolate chip cookie mudslides and pie and icecream and popcorn...anything dessert-like! We need to get a grip and learn to limit ourselves, but I'm not sure how to do it. I would love your guys' help!!


Commitment: To eliminate all other options.
