I can have or live without sodas but my husband lives for Mt. Dews and when he goes to get one, he brings me a Dr. Pepper, which is my fav. And instead of saying no, I usually drink it. When I get bored, I snack.
I also tend to want to finish my kids meal, what they didn't want. I am trying to do better with this but it is just hard for me to see the food go to waste.
