I have to agree. I usually have little projects and errands to do on the weekend, so it's not really an issue for me, though at times it can me. Just don't keep the really bad stuff on hand. And, I second the finding an activity you enjoy that eating is not a part of.

Oh, an track! Especially on the weekend. That has helped me as you can't ignore the calorie tally.

Good luck!

The only way I avoid eating when I am home all the time is to NOT have anything hazardest in my house!! I found that all "whites" were too addicting for me so they are not in my house: that includes rice, pasta, crackers, chips, bread, anything with sugar.... I make sugar free pudding and jello and store them in serving size containers so I can grab one when I "need" to snack.

I also started eating a huge salad at least once a day: I switched to spinach and Kale (so much healthier) and add radishes, tomatoes, mushrooms, celery, and other raw veggies, then 2 eggs some salt and pepper and low calorie Newmans' salad dressing... fills me up -- just a thought.....

I make sure if I want a "treat" it is not at my house and limited to ONE.....

Hope any of this helps!

Is there an interest that you always wanted to follow up on once life settled down? When I retired, I began taking piano lessons again and I find that I practice much more faithfully than I did when I was a kid.

My name is Tammy and I live in SW Missouri.

Find other interests that don't involve food. Develope a craft, read a book, go for a walk, check a library or local school. I read and collect records that I exercise to. I take classes on the internet through the local college. I wood burn signs to give as gifts. So many things to do and so little time. Enjoy life.

Hi I'm 47 and I have only been divorced for a couple of years and my children have grown up & left home. I find that I eat healthy during the week but my diet blows out on the weekends there is only a certain amount of house work to do & I like to spend time at home on the weekends as I work with a large group of people and like the peace on week ends any suggestions to stop eating from boredom
