If You Know Its Bad For You, Dont Buy It!

This Sparked Me!

Generally, if I have food that's really really bad for me in the house, I will end up eating it and blowing an entire day before I realize what I'm doing. By not buying it, I have to leave the house and go out to get something if I want something junky. Usually I decide it's not worth the effort it would take to go and get it at the store.

    This is the only way I can avoid eating junkfood as well. I live with my elderly mother and sometimes I give in, thinking.. it is not fair to deprive her... But it never fails.. I end up eating it... Very good suggestion as I am witness. this works... Keep junk food out of the house... generally when I am out, I am not craving it so I don't buy it.. It's when I have it in the house... and the urge hits me.. there is no resistance.. Usually after I go to bed and wake up.... emoticon

    You are SO right! I cannot tell you how many times I've saved myself from bingeing on high-calorie junk by NOT buying it. This really works!
