  • Your excuse about the kids doesn't hold water, If you eat them they can't have them either...hum...think about that, maybe it will help you not eat it if you remember that if you eat one, that's one less for your kids!

  • Put them in a freezer friendly container, and bury them at the back, it's harder to eat a frozen cookie, when it is as hard as hockey puck.

  • I make them "reward cookies" lol... so for every set of 3 flights of stairs I run up, for example I would allow myself one cookie. If I worked out, I would allow myself dessert that night... If I cleaned house (active cleaning, like vacuuming and carpets etc) that would earn a cookie. Lol you'll find yourself being VEry productive just to earn that next cookie! :)

  • I make my husband hide the stuff. That way I'm not as tempted.

  • Send them to work with your husband, give them to a friend or an enemy, take them to a friend.

  • Well....since you grab one every time you go into the kitchen, you can maybe limit the number of times you go into the kitchen. Seriously though, I don't do a good job at all with it myself
