Commercials while watching TV with food being the ad does become a trigger. I like to get up and circle through the house walking as fast as I can during commercials and watching TV is a good time to stretch or do stay in place exercises and it is surprising what those few minutes will add to your tracker for the day. My tracker is the Fitbit.

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:3-4.

I have a hard time watching tv commercials around dinner time. They are almost ALL about food. Now my family tries to watch everything off the dvr so we can skip commercials. The other way is to pause the tv, do something else for 15 to 30 minutes (take a walk?) and then fast forward through the commercials.
Facebook drives me crazy now too but at least I can still scroll quickly past those food pictures.

Best wishes, Candy

I think I can, I think I can, I know I can win this weight battle!

Great find...and you are not alone as you can see. Advertising is such a powerful tool. It take practice to start arming yourself using the your powerful tool, which advertising is attacking, you mind. Find the words, visualize your goals and/or visual picture you keep with you that will help keep you on track. It works!

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

I've actually gotten off of Sparkspeople because of this reason a few times. Sugar being advertised and the mouse touches something then it's big screen and trying to find the close button.

I remember Sparks when they started and there were no ads. The good old days before money was wanted to run the site and they had to sell out to everyone.

If you don't love yourself....how can you expect others to.

Hehe the other day I was in a new gym, on the treadmill with a TV screen. A cooking channel came on and they were making chocolate truffle cakes with homemade vanilla ice cream.
And the buttons to change channel were broken.
It was like a special kind of torture!

I can have the same problem with recipe books. There are times I just cannot look at the pictures. Good that you just ate an apple.
