Oh my goodness! Do not, under any circumstances, put a whole casserole dish of home made mac & cheese on the table near me. I will mindlessly shovel in a couple of normal servings, then go back for more. Needless to say, I don't make this very often and I've started baking it in individual dishes so only one serving per person makes it to the table.

Cheesecake (thankfully, I don't have to deal with it too often) chocolate. My husband knows this and bought me a "resilient" plant (aka REALLY hard to kill :) and some running socks for Valentines Day instead of chocolate. He has seen me devour an entire box in a day or two.
Oh yeah - chocolate! I'll deny myself any because I'm afraid that I won't stop... then get frustrated that I have to deny myself. I'm working on trying to have a *reasonable* amount as part of my normal diet.

Everything I do is in moderation. No extreme diets here; I go to the gym 3 times a week when my schedule allows it; and I just try to make the best choices I can, regardless of what life throws my way.
Love my SparkFriends for keeping me motivated and inspired!
Martin's potato chips are mine. I can only get the small snack bags if I can find them. I bought a regular size bag today to have for a "Thanksgiving day treat" and the bag was opened & 1/2 way gone this afternoon before I could stop myself. Chocolate is another one too, but only in candy bar or m&m form. I can have bags of chocolate chips laying around and not be tempted at all. I even have a grocery bag in my one cupboard of chocolate treats for me niece & nephew for stocking stuffers and don't even think about it being there.

Baked goods, either homemade or from a good bakery. Packaged stuff I can take or leave, but some nice soft cookies or a chocolate cupcake... I have a very very hard time just having one and then stopping.
Not really. I have things that I'll eat a lot of but that tends to be my choice! These are not things I get often because they are things that other people make. My brother in law's barbecue ribs, my father in law's pumpkin pie, and when my mother in law was alive there was also a strawberry rhubarb cake that was absolutely to die for....and I'm not usually much of a cake person. Sometimes I'll do it with sushi but again, something I don't eat everyday. I don't like sushi from everywhere, I tend to like it from places where it costs quite a bit and requires a special occasion to go or this one restaurant that has it included in the buffet price..but that's far enough away and I'm a non-driver. I've actually joked about living off sushi...

Time to stop trying to solve things with food (lack of included) that food won't solve. Food solves one thing: bodily hunger.
My hushands is Ice Cream too. It's funny because when we first met he didn't want me to know about his middle of the night ice cream eatting. he would buy a pint the small blue bell ice cream......eat the whole thing and throw the cart at the very bottom of the trash.
It's cute but just not healthy. He's like my fat kid,I love him
My weakness is pasta. I can't just have one serving. My serving is like 3 on a plate. Carbs are my weakness.
