Don't buy the stuff you don't want to be eating. If you have children who ask for their favorite candy/snack/treat, think about how you're trying to become more healthy. Then ask yourself, Don't I want that for my whole family? If you wouldn't eat it, why would you feed it to any of the other members in your family. If it's not in the house, there can be no temptation. Just like you've made adjustments, your family will learn to adjust too.

It is much easier to say no to junk food snacks and fast food if you don't let yourself get to the "starving" point. Make sure you eat small snacks in between your meals and never let yourself get overly hungry. Your brain does not think rationally when your blood sugar drops and your stomach is growling like a monster, and all you want is junk food. Keep this from happening by snacking on a regular basis and it becomes much easier to make the right choices.
