Chewing Gum helps curb you desire to eat also. Extra gum by Wrigley's has tons of flavors and is quickly becoming a favortie of mine.

I will do what I can with what I have for Jesus sake Today.

tip that helps me from eating way more on weekends is start morning with 2 sausage egg biscuits, then I am fine till supper time and have some carbs, next day I have my cappachino and a sweet and rest of week, I can focus on healthy snacks such as dipping baby carrots in fruity light yogurt, this helps raw carrott to go down easier.

I'll have to try the tooth brush plan. I don't have an upstairs but I do have a tooth brush in our master bathroom and the spare bathroom on the other side of the house.

I keep a tooth brush both upstairs and down so that I don't have to go up if I need to brush mine. It helps me keep from eating after a certain time even if I am not ready to go to bed.

My mom brushes her teeth at a certain point each evening and that helps her stay away from food. I can't make myself go up the stairs to get to the toothbrush to even try the plan...

Boredom in the afternoon and late morning hours get me. I will have to try a sign on the fridge.

I do have late-night snacking issues - usually popcorn. I make a healthy version but it's still calories close to bedtime so I've been trying to compromise by battling another weak point - not getting enough servings of fruit.

So if I absolutely HAVE to have a snack that late, I let myself have a piece of fruit... so far, so good

Does anyone else have this problem? I made a rule not to eat after 8 pm but almost every night at 10 or so I just HAVE to have a piece of cheese or something...

I have a perfect body. I just pad it for protection.

Boredom is one of the worst obstacles for staying on plan. I try to divert my attention.

I think a lot of us run into some variation of this problem during the process of changing to healthier lifestyles.

The best advice I can give is something I learned from others on Spark... First and foremost, this is a lifestyle change - It's not a race and it's not a diet you need to hurry up and finish... You'll need to be committed to it for the rest of your life so it has to be something you can realistically LIVE with... So, instead of focusing on what you think you can't do, focus on what you CAN do... Remember, small changes - when added to other small changes - will start to make a big difference. I knew early on that if I felt I couldn't snack anymore, I would fail. I also knew if I had to give up my favorite foods entirely, I would fail.

If giving up "boredom eating" is a challenge you don't feel you can do (yet), then choose your snacks wisely. Instead of reaching for potato chips, reach for crunchy veggies, low-fat popcorn, rice chips, baked chips, or at least a 100-calorie serving size of your favorite chips.

I'm not perfect - There are days I know I can do better than I have - but I also know I don't HAVE to be perfect to get to my final fitness goal.

Don't give up. Take baby steps when making changes. Don't beat yourself up... and you'll be fine!

I have a magnetic pirate on my fridge with his sword pointing at me. I know he means business and I should only open that door if there's something in there that I NEED!!
LOL!

I, too, struggle with "boredom" eating. I also have a problem with "I deserve it" eating. I tend to use food as a reward and a treat for just about anything! I'm learning to find healthy ways to treat myself, and I'm working on the boredom busters, too. Never-the-less, I have a feeling these will be issues for me forever.

I think it simply helps to be aware of these issues and focus on not doing those things. That's where your sign on the fridge comes in handy, Kenny. I have one, too, and it reminds me why I'm there most of the time.

I like to clothes shop so I'm ok with that part but all the rest I totally agree with you on.

I was told that people who eat when their bored are still considered "emotional eaters" which was weird to hear.

I haven't combated the bored thing yet but let me know if your fridge trick works.

I have a perfect body. I just pad it for protection.

Just wondering if anyone has weird mental blocks to losing weight? I seem to have a couple.

First off, I hate clothes shopping and keep thinking if I lose as much weight as I need to, I will be buying a whole new wardrobe. I guess I should get something fun like a T-shirt I saw that shows a Wii controller and says "I exercise every day."

Next up, I tend to eat when I'm bored. I put a sign on my fridge reminding me to go DO SOMETHING instead of eating unless I'm actually hungry.

There are also times I eat a lot after exercising to the point that I end up gaining weight instead of losing.

All in all, I'm focusing on getting down to a healthy weight so I can get rid of this stupid sleep apnea. I can't remember the last time I actually felt rested & energetic. High school maybe? Focusing on how good I'll feel when I'm healthy has helped me focus on eating healthy & exercising.
