My mom is so cute because she will give them to one of my kids and say "take these home for you guys and your daddy". It's as if by "labeling" for them it's going to make a lick of difference. Update: We went out last night, had a great time, ate and drank a bit too much, but not ridiculous, then on my empty stomach this morning I had a cookie. It was as good as ever, but 10 minutes later I was having cramps for eating it without having anything else on my stomach and too little sleep. Yeah! That leaves me not wanting anymore!!!

I hear u, a few weeks ago I had a half a bag of chocolate chips that were calling me I caved and made the cookies, and over then next week eat the darn things! Luckly I didn't gain tons of pounds, and my cravings for them is gone, sometimes eating a few is ok! It's better if they aren't in the house at all, but if they let yourself one or 2, or if better ask your mom not to make and give u anymore, that as much as u love them u are really trying to eat better.

Hey kids it's me Linda46,

When in doubt - throw them out! Or take them to the party tonight and let everybody else eat them while you feel SO proud for saying no!

You are so right and I love the visual image of them on my thighs. Heck, I have no doubt I still have some on my thighs from 1999!

Chocolate chip cookies are EVIL. They stick to your thighs and won't let go! I have a couple on my thighs that have been there since Christmas!!!! STAY AWAY FROM THE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. Besides that, you KNOW you will feel guilty if you do!!!

I think I am so busy laughing about this that should keep me busy! Isn't it nuts how a COOKIE can outrank improving your own self-esteem!?! One of my favorite sayings is nothing tastes as good as being thin feels, but then to put it into action. Wow! Cookies are still in the van by the way and I am actually feeling better about it. I think I even learned something about myself through this. Odd little trivia - While I was waiting to see if I got any replies I got my kitchen cleaned up (dishwasher unloaded from yesterday, breakfast and lunch dishes put in there, and the countertops cleaned off). I suddenly realized I don't think about eating as much if my kitchen is cleaned up! It seems like a "finished product" and not to be messed with. What a great thing to know about myself though! One more challenge though - I am making a sparksrecipe for potato salad for tonight (see, I really am trying to be good), but I am worried once I get in the kitchen again and my focus goes to food there will be those cookies again! :) I really do feel better though. I am so proud of my other accomplishments in life that surely I as a person am stronger than a cookie (or all of the other future challenges I face). THANKS Spark Friends! emoticon

Send them to me - LOL!

Is there something you love doing that takes all of your focus and attention? That usually works for me. There's also a fifteen minute rule; if you wait fifteen minutes and get busy with something else, you might find that you've forgotten all about them. Drink a bottle of water. Last resort - if you can't resist, have just ONE (if it's a small one, HALF if it's a big cookie) BUT, put it on a plate, sit down to eat it and eat it very slowly, savoring every crumb.

By the way, if you have mom's recipe, input the ingredients into SparkRecipes, break it down into servings and see if the calorie count doesn't scare you off; that's another tactic that works very well! After all the effort I put in at the gym, the last thing I want to do is blow it on something that is tantalizing for all of two minutes!

Since you're going out later, I hope you'll be able to resist them, so be strong!

LEAVE THEM IN THE CAR! They'll be there tomorrow or the next day and will be just as yummy then. You can have that treat tomorrow, because you are already going to have treats tonight when you go out.

Now go think about something else. Go play with your kid; clean something; do a light workout; get your hands busy doing something else--crafts (I knit for therapy); cutting out valentines; writing a novel on the computer. Just go do something else and occupy your mind with something else.

If that doesn't work, come over here and do some of my chores. I have a messy, empty house today; kids are out with dad.

Good luck to you! emoticon You are stronger than you think!

Let me start by saying my mom makes the very best choc. chip cookies ever. She is not much of a cook or baker, but these she has mastered. I picked my kids up from her house this morning and she sent a bag of them home for my husband and kids. The husband is at work, one kid is napping and the other is lost in her activities. They are in my van as I did not bring them into this house (seriously, this is sad!) :), but now I am thinking about them. I know I don't have to deprive myself, but I had a couple of rough days already this past week and we are going to friends for dinner and drinks tonight so I am already pushing myself to the edge. I am in need of some insightful words here. Anybody up for motivating a chocolate chip cookie crazed mom today?!?
