Picture Roaches


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

People where I work bring in LOTS of really fattening junk food almost every day. They leave the items in the kitchen. If I am tempted by what I see, I just mentally picture roaches crawling on the food and I no longer want it. Gross but effective.

    Ha! That sounds like it would totally work! I know whenever I see home-made treats brought in to the office, I try to imagine and picture that the treatmaker has cats - and that the cats just left the litterbox and were probably walking across the counter as the treat was being made. Most times it works (sometimes the treats look so good, the cats don't seem so bad after all)

    This is awesome! Mine is almost close, I visualize cellulite or actual fat, it's how I stopped eating donuts, bagels and what I call "meetings" food.
