  • quit buying junk food., keep your fridge and pantry stocked with healthy snacks like carrots, fruits, and rice cakes. everytime you get the urge to snack, do 10 pushups and have a glass of water.

  • I agree with teri4lance, one thing to remember is if your children see you eating healthy snacks, they will want them too. Especially the 4 yr old.

    When I get bored I find other things to do, sewing, crafts, scrapbooking, making cards etc. Keeps me from eating myself outta house and home. I don't think about food. Also, go out for a walk or a bike ride as well.

  • Yeah, I've got a 5 yold, who is always asking for sweet things. I DON'T BUY THEM. Yeah I love to raid the fridge, I cook extras for dinner the night before. Then I have a healthy meal to pick at the next day.
