Thank you so much. I try to put the fruit out. I rarely buy chips. But even real food can do you in if you eat too much or too often. I have fibromyalgia and am awake most nights with pain. Most people get hungry every few hours. Then they eat.

You are making great progress. That's wonderful. Despite the hubby and sons.

I do the same thing...I'm 55 and cook for my husband and two sons..of course..THEY can eat whatever they want..and not GAIN weight...But me..I just look at it and gain...UGH
I did tell my hubby that chips, cookies and cakes are just for the weekend...So..fruit and veggies are in the house during the weekdays...and that has helped some...I just can't have that temptation around me anymore either...

I'm 74. I cook 3 meals a day for my husband and son. Everything is cooked from scratch--no TV dinners! I'm surrounded by food continuously. When I was younger, it seemed I was full of willpower. Now, it seems as if every temptation is answered by a resounding YES!!!

This is not me. I'm a reasonably intelligent person. I know what 1200 calories should look like. But I seem to be constantly grabbing the ice cream, the chocolate chips (right out of the Nestles bag), or a midnight slice of buttered (at least it's whole wheat) toast.

I'm 5'2 and weigh 170 lbs. Why is this not getting through to me? Am I just being self-destructive, or am I really hungry all the time?
