    Mel,
Hope all is well with you. Happy Christmas to you. I liked your blog. Mindless eating can be a real hazard. I agree, not to eat while watching tv. Enjoy Christmas and spending time with your dh and family. God bless you. hugs, Ei emoticon emoticon

    This is my "dangerous" time, so I try to keep my hands busy by doing my crochet or knitting while I watch. I sometimes set myself a portion and try to see how long I can make it last. And of course, when its gone, its gone! emoticon

    I wasn't sure whether is was that I only watch t v late in the day that I snacked or hunger? I know not to set things out because I will snack even if I am not hungry.I try and do word puzzles while watching t v to keep my hands busy.

    Very true. We need to be focused and cognizant of what we eat.

    The trick is to only have in your dish what you're going to eat. No possibility of overeating if it's not there.

    What I do is serve myself once and that's it. emoticon
