Will power.  If you want to lose weight. You’ll do it.  If you notice the scale starting to drop, you’ll be able to have self control.  I’ve gone back on my  no sugar diet because of my pre-diabetes and it’s been a little over a month.  The scale is decreasing…that’s giving me will power to say no and not eat crap.  as bad as I want it, i can’t eat it.  (and i get sick from eating it)   You won’t loose weight until you get over that urge and cut it out completely.

@tmsing:  I started weight watchers a few weeks ago and I have found so many ways to get around this! for lunch today I had greek yogurt, ranch flavored rice cake thingies, and a little bag of 100 calorie yogurt covered pretzels. I swear I feel like I got to eat ice cream, doritos, and a kit kat bar! lol I still get sad when I have to walk by the donuts my coworkers bring in but I have found ways to trick myself 😛 I keep all my snacks readily available here at work so when temptation hits, I can go and have something that won’t wreck my diet but that (honestly) tastes just as good and doesn’t make me feel nearly as bad.

I read your threat title and my first thought was “I haz none” lol… 

 

When we have people bring in food sometimes we cut it in half, instead of a whole donut maybe eat a half of one?  That’s pretty much the extent of my willpower 😛

@stardustintheeyes:  I do the same thing!! 

 

Apples work too!  Apples will fill you up.  You get the urge for sweets or you are starving…eat an apple!  It works…seriously!

@Kandiss16:  That is a diabolical plan 0.0

The last time I ate a doughnut was when a professor brought them in for a study day before our final. Class was optional that day and at least half the class didn’t show up. These doughnuts were huge and our prof was jokingly threatening us saying no one could leave until everyone had had at least one doughnut (he didn’t want 50 leftover doughnuts) He really tried to get everyone to eat 2. I stopped at 1 because I was already starting to feel sick. The sugar crash I got off of that thing is probably the worst I’ve ever experienced.

I haven’t eaten a doughnut in years now. Whenever someone offers me one I just remember how sick I felt afterwards. I felt awful for a lot longer than the good taste lasted.

@rickhurst35:  apples are a very good treat! its all in your mind really. If you start convincing yourself that the apple is going to be delicious and remind yourself that it doesn’t come with the nasty after feeling that most junk food comes along with, it all starts to work a lot easier. I am a fat kid for real, and I love me some food! But when you hit your limit, whether it’s for health reasons or otherwise, having that self control isn’t as hard. Also, it’s all about being prepared and having a plan for when the hard moments come along. If you are unprepared, you are way more likely to just be like “screw it im having a snickers!”

@tmsing:  It sounds awful, but I don’t want any type of food more than I want to stay thin/lose weight.  I just think of my dress and how I want to look in photos and that’s all the motivation I need!

@tmsing:  Maybe its the skin on the apples. Give it a good washing or just cut the skins off the apples? 

I have allergic reactions to “some” strawberries.  Not all.   Some strawberries gives me rashes, some don’t?  Strange.

@tmsing:  The office is a great diet sabatoger. It’s terrible. I do the same as you and I don’t buy any crap for the house (or I buy stuff I don’t like – luckily all of FI’s favourites are yucky to me). It’s a lot harder at the office. I just try to ignore it and tell people not to even tell me when there is crap in the break room.
