Yes you can be strong! Try to find something else to do when he brings those things home. Go out for a walk, or even just go outside and sit and read until he has finished eating that junk food.

I myself do pretty good, then all of a sudden, I run into a week where I just can't stop getting the sweets. It is getting better, slowly, but I am definately not there yet!

Thanks, everyone! What great tips and advice to get me through! I need to take one day at a time and one craving at a time. I also need to sit down with my boyfriend and let him know to stop bringing home the junk! Last night he came home with yummy, delicious, HUGE, cinnamon rolls from Costco! AAHHHH!!! He has a bigger sweet tooth than me, but doesn't pay for it like I do :( I CAN BE STRONG!

I find that I can't bring any kind of sweets home. If I do, they are gone in an instant. So, if I do want something I have to get it while I am out shopping or make a point to go out to just get a sweet.

One thing I have been doing lately is getting the small individual size container of the chocolate almond milk. It really does satify that chocolate craving.

My worst time is at night while watching TV, that's when I want to snack, so I try to keep my hands busy doing something like sew, or crochet etc.

Hope this helps.

I have the same problem. What works for me when my portions get out of control is to just say "No" to chocolate for a limited period of time, say a week. That breaks the routine and makes it a little easier to moderate my portions when I start eating it again. Another suggestion: Buy some sugar-free chocolate syrup (the kind you use for a mocha drink -- Torani makes one http://www.torani.com/) and have a cup of that instead.

Hello! I just rejoined sparkpeople today. I want to lose 50 lbs. One of my major downfalls is chocolate! I need to learn how to enjoy my favorite treat in moderation, not eating half a bag of kisses in one sitting!
