Sugar, sugar, sugar. I am definitely chemically addicted because I get withdrawal symptoms when I go too long. Specifically however, my demon comes in the form of Wawa chocolate chip cookies emoticon

Sourdough bread. As a native San Franciscan, the flavor and texture was imprinted on me as a baby. It is definitely a trigger food for me.

Potato chips. I cannot eat a small number of chips. If there is a bag there, I will settle the bag next to me and mindlessly eat. I've been thankful for the little single Pringles containers.
I will throw one in my lunch box and that has helped me make it through the rough times.

You can't wait for motivation to strike; sometimes you need to dig deep into yourself and find the motivation on your own.

Cheese is my red-flag food. I try to stick to strong-flavored cheeses, like gorgonzola, so I get the flavor but use less. I also like the Laughing Cow Lite cheeses.

Bright Blessings-giving up chocolate, the dark sweet kind, first on the list. Potato Chips is second. Substituting carob for chocolate, and unsalted dry roasted sunflower seeds and peanut seeds for the potato chips has been a blessing. And satisfies the cravings. Eating a lot more fresh fruits and veggies has put me back on track many times.

I know what you mean about the junk food - salt or sweet. I fell off of Spark for a while due to this issue. Gained back 20 pounds of my 56 pound loss, but I am back on top of my game now. I have kept my same clothes so that has helped me get back to eating better. I have to do moderation. If I even think denial, I will just throw in the towel and give up. Been there, done that, way too many times. I do feel really good about my food shopping this weekend and getting myself back together before gaining it all back. I can do this. I know I can. One meal at a time, one day at a time.

Live well, play hard and enjoy life. It really is too short.

I'm a junk food junkie and have most difficulty trying to eat junk food in moderation so I really should give it up. Once I get started, I have trouble stopping and am ALWAYS putting it off 'til another day, which is EXACTLY where I'm at right now.

The hardest thing for me to give up has been my salty snack foods (and now apparently Starburst fruit chews, as well)

I agree that moderation works better for me in regard to food. I can abstain from alcohol, but food is more difficult. Therefore, moderating my intake is better over the long run in my experience.

Once one dismisses the rest of all possible worlds,

One finds that this is the best of all possible worlds.

I don't personally believe in "giving anything up" - I did Atkins and lost 65 pounds several years back, and then gained it all back because I couldn't maintain the "denying myself" certain foods, and if I had some I'd binge for weeks. My motto now - which is working beautifully for me - is "anything in moderation" - there are no "bad foods", just foods I have to be careful not to overeat, or just have as an occasional treat. Not denying myself means I don't feel punished or restricted, and I'm less likely to get a hankering for something and go overboard.

I was wondering what is something you have not been able to give up thus far on your road to fitness, or what do you think you'll have trouble giving up. For me it will probably be white potatoes. I just do not like the taste of sweet potatoes. What about everyone else?
