I have this really rough thing I do to myself when I want an evening snack. I just jump on my scales and when I see the result,- I don't want a snack anymore.
If you're really addicted to scales, you shouldn't do this, especially because you're always heavier at evening (water, food you ate adds to your weigh), and I don't do this every evening, only when I'm about to do some really bad choices like pizza or crisps. :) Scales are my reality check.

Instead of making those resolutions that barely last 10 days let alone 12 months - make some goals with positive non-food related rewards. Like I'm going to be below xxx lbs by Feb and I will get a massage for reaching it.
For all things that come in large bags or boxes (cereal, crackers, pita chips, etc) I repackage them in snack bags as 100 calorie servings. This cuts down on my guestimation errors when I just grab a handful or pour a bowlful!
