If hunger isn't the problem, food isn't the solution.

I don't put anything in my mouth without asking myself why I'm eating it. To see what it tastes like? Okay, just one. To refuel myself? Dig in. Because I feel like it? NOPE! when I simply "feel" like eating something, it usually means I'm "feeling" some other emotions, stress, fatigue, guilt and I'm just eating to not deal with them. Before I eat anything, I figure out what I'm really "feeling" first.

Cravings? Stop them NOW!

Problems with cravings? Stop them now by telling yourself this one thing! By the time a month goes by you'll believe this and won't touch any more junk food!

If you don't buy it you can not eat it

Why bother buying unhealthy food ?. When you go the market only shop on the outside isles. Produce, Meat, Dairy. All the processed food is in the middle. Bring an Ipod and distract yourself with music so you do not put other things in your cart.

Wait 30 minutes for your SWEET SATISFACTION!!!

When sweet cravings hit, 'once you cop, you can't stop!!' When the craving (or temptation hits for the first time, I tell myself, "I will, but in 30 minutes". I keep this up as long as I can. By the time I give in, I still do less damage than I would have done. Sugar has NO nutritional value!!! So it's not a necessity, but a luxury. Let's make it worth it and enjoy it even more! emoticon

Buy What You Don't Like

Fighting the Halloween candy splurge? Feel like the "bad guy" for banning junk food from your house? Here's a trick I use - buy foods you DON'T like. That way you're not tempted to chow down on something that you know isn't healthy. Hate fruity candy? Buy jelly beans to give out for Halloween. Hate ranch flavor chips? Buy those instead of your favorite cheesy chips. It's way easier to resist temptation if you DON'T find it tempting!

Look Cute

Doing your hair, putting on make-up and dressing nice helps you eat less.

Instead of Candy...

Sorry folks but I am a candy-a-holic. Instead of cookies and cake I rather eat a whole package of Sour Patch kids. However, to slim down I put a stop to this. Instead I eat watermelon, peaches, strawberries, bananas, etc.

I try to stay with the sweeter fruits to get my candy fix. So far it has been working great. You can have the flavors you want without the extra calories! emoticon

Go to sleep

Go to bed at a reasonable time. I try to be in bed by 9pm. This way I don't have to fight against midnight snacking because I'm already sleep. emoticon

Simple Sweets Moderation!

If you are ever tempted by a candy bar or other sweets and snacks just tell yourself over and over that you could eat right and lose the weight now, and eat the sweets later. Tell yourself that you could always buy a 60 cent candy bar or a 99 cent bag of chips, etc. on another day. It always helps!

Portion Control for Fair Food

It's easy to go nuts at the fair, and especially hard because it's fair season. Order what seems to be the lightest item, then dump half of it into the nearest garbage can.

Immediate Pleasure VS Eternal Pain

Junk food tastes good right now but an hour later you FEEL the negative effects. Weeks or months later you SEE the negative effects. Something great for a few seconds or minutes isn't worth something horrible for months or years.

Junk food...not in my house

If you see it you will eat it! Don't take junk home! If you HAVE to have it eat it at work and share with co-workers. If you bring home a pack of cookies you will prob eat all of them. Leave the junk at the door.
