Try getting together without bring snacks. Leave the kitchen until you feel full.
Any ideas out there?

When I decided to stop spending the extra money, I was forced to also stop consuming so much extra waste and junk food.
Weight is back down below 200 and feeling great.

I've used Paul McKenna's book, "I can make you thin." ISBN 978-1-4027-6571-1, and I'll use it again.
Here's the amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Can-Make-You-Thin-Revolutionary/dp/1402765711/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1255886445&sr=1-1
First step: hide the bathroom scale. check; it's in the closet. Nov 1st is next weigh in.
Second step: If I think of eating when not hungry, try to change what I'm doing to a different activity.

1) Is $2:50 a lot for a gallon of gas?
2) Is 48 degrees farenheit cold?
3) Is 60 thousand per year a lot of money?
4) Is 5% return on investment good?
Can you see that the answer to the questions always depends on you? $2:50 for gass is good news if you've been paying $4:00. You must make a choice. Either way choose good or bad it is up to you.
One day I realized that my emotions about the weather, unemployment rate, price of gas, or type of car I drove are more about my choices than the condition itself. I am not suggesting we leave sanity at the door. Obviously a car that doesn't get me to work, price of gas beyond what I can pay, or temperature that freezes your skin are real boundries.
I'm thinking about the other 90+% of our lives that fit between the boundries. Our mental life is more like bowling. As long as we stay out of the gutters, a little curve could be a good thing.
My request to you is a simple one. Make a decision about today and live on purpose. Remember what it felt like to have a great year? Is it okay to make a choice to feel that way every year? I think it is.
