    I've been doing this for yearsI first heard about it in a WW meeting in the 1980s If you don't want to chew gum, try a sugarless mint, or even a Tic Tac - any strong flavor. - by AZURE-SKY
  • I LOVE this idea! Possibly the best NEW idea I've seen in a long time. Maybe one of my biggest temptations is cookie dough while baking. Did I say temptations? Ummm, downfalls. emoticon emoticon emoticon - by JOYFULMN
