  • I do, because I do have will power. I just don't like to exercise.

  • I do, because of the hubby. But out of sight, is out of mind. Its not laying around tempting me. I have the will power to resist. I am not trying to loose weight as much as I try to stay active. As long as I get out and move everyday, I can eat what I want, but I still dont let myself go crazy on indulging.

  • No, unless it's a very small portion...

  • Not really. I'm not a big fan of sweets or "junk food" in general. Bread and pasta are my weaknesses, but I can resist most of the time.

  • Im same as Mrs.BAT.. Im not into junk food all that much.. We still have candy from halloween & girl scout cookies my dh bought about 1 mo. ago.
    My problem i think is lack of exercise & too much eating fast food.

  • I keep some in the house, I'm a believer in "everything in moderation". I don't go overboard with anything but if I want a piece of chocolate I do better having a piece then not. Over the years I have learned if I tell myself I can't have something I want it more, it would get so bad that I would have to have it and would over do it.

  • My proglem is--I don't buy it! Hubby does!! Makes me crazy sometimes. There are a lot of junk foods that I could care less about--chips, most ice creams, candy, Oreos-but there are some that I love! Certain flavors of ice cream, carmamel popcorn, Tastykakes, etc. He buys them and then I eat them!! Makes me crazy.

  • When I am trying to eat right, I usually keep those things away.

  • I try to keep that stuff outta the house. I'll think I have the will power and then I don't!!

  • I will ever once in awhile but I can still resist the urge to go and eat it.
