Sometimes you just don't know where to start. So instead of starting, you munch on everything.
Changing the way you eat does NOT mean you can't have something nonhealthy on occasion, or in my situation once a week, 1 meal. Start with baby steps. Start out by watching your calories for breakfast. Get rid of the crappy things in the house. If you don't buy it, it's not there for you to make a mistake with. Frankly, I am a fast food kind of person. The faster I can get it to my mouth the more likely I am to eat it. So, my response is everything in my house is meal types of food. I gotta prepare and cook it. I hate cooking.
Get active. If you are active at something Wii, classes, walking, gym..whatever, you are less likely to want to eat that bad thing. Why? My motivation is because I just killed my self at Zumba, I am paying $60 a month to get fit there, and I am going to ruin it with stuffing my face with junk. What a waste of money.
When you want to "sneak" and eat, drink some water, have some Skinny cow or weight watchers "bad" foods on hand. Throw out left over dinners immediately after everyone got their plate. If it isn't there, you can't pick. -I'm a picker.
Good luck, we're here for you. It is truly hard in the beginning, middle and end...but with help and choices you can do it. It gets easier here and there. Don't deprive yourself something naughty once a week, that way you won't dwell on it.
