I kept my husband from purchasing a bag of chips.
I asked him to please eat that kind of stuff out or at his office.

I haven't eaten any seasonal candy. Tasted and got rid of it (garbage). I don't know what I want, I just want...... anyone know this feeling?

I hope I get this figured out before I do damage. I thought it as chocolate.....but the smell wasn't appetising. It isn't fruit or gum, it is definitely for something sweet.

I know this is not good. My plan is to have flavoured tea in the morning, and keep up with my liquids. All my flavoured teas are Decaf, so I hope this helps me through the day.

I have had no Easter candy or anything. But I had two brownies yesterday evening.

I think this is a great idea, but I never remember to do it when I actually sit down to eat, any suggestions to making this a habit?

always a great idea to self-assess before eating...even more important when celebrating with family and lots of temptations are around. Thanks!

Great challenge and suggestions. I will join you in this, trying to do my best and do it for the first time for the best!

Have a wonderful, very Happy Easter Sunday, be blessed!

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.

Self-assess:
Before each meal or snack, first think about the reasons you are eating. i.e. hunger, taste, habit, subconsciously copying someone else etc.

Identify:
Any foods you are eating for the wrong reasons, comment in a notebook, or on the discussion board – appropriate during Easter weekend I think! Last Easter I went overboard on the hot cross buns and wasn’t aware until the whole pack was gone in a few days! I was well aware of the dangers of Easter eggs from previous years so only had the smallest pack of the smallest ones in the house lol.

Prepare:
Come up with a solution how to avoid this in the future and write it down in your journal and/or on the discussion board to share your tips with the rest of us! I decided not to buy 6 packs of hot cross buns anymore. If I do feel the need for one I can always specially go out and buy just one from a bakery!
