Yesterday I walked to the post office to mail the book I sold on half.com. I wanted to treat myself to a lunch downtown, but I didn't. I walked back to work and ate my Lean Cuisine.

Every night I drive past a KFC/Pizza Hut on my way home from work, and I always have an urge to drive through and get a snacker. I don't.

In the not-too-recent past I got a McDonald's Happy Meal every Saturday while doing errands. No more.

I am not so good at resisting food I shouldn't have when it is lying around, however. And I am terrible about raiding the break room whenever free treats are out.

I don't want my pounds to creep back on, so I am stepping up my resisting as of today. If I can resist food I have to pay for, I can also resist free food, or food that's already paid for. I know I have to go a little bit hungry, and that's just the way it is. I don't have the kind of metabolism that allows me to eat what I want. So. I'm going hungry, for the ultimate goal of feeling better and feeling proud of myself.

    Thanks for mentioning this. I hope you've nudged me to step up the resistance, too. Wink

    I need to do the same. Too much snacking doesn't really help me in the long run.

    I've limited my family's snack option to only healthy things: veggie chips, carrot sticks, cheese sticks, apples, almonds. Healthier than fruit snacks, chips, and other crap I've been known to buy!
