After you have determined that you are indeed hungry, MAKE SURE you have acceptable choices on hand - healthy nuts or seeds, fruits, veggies, hard pretzels, butter-less popcorn, etc. Then you will not be tempted to consume high calories fat-laden snacks!
While using the friend feed to see what my Spark friends are up to, I keep an extra window open showing all my friends. Then I can easily link to their individual Spark pages to comment, give goodies, read and comment on their blogs, and send them sparkmail without having to leave the friend feed.
This saves me the time and trouble of having to reopen the friend feed and navigate through the pages to continue reading the feed.
Out of Sight, Out of mind... and out of my mouth!!
I have to be sure to PUT every thing UP!! If there is anything out on the cabinets, I can't resist... I walk by and have it in my mouth before I know it. If I close up all snacks, cereals, etc and put them in the cabinet, I won't open it up and eat it. But if it is out, I'll eat it.
If I have the munchies, I'll cut up an apple, peal and section an orange and leave it in plane site for me to grab instead
