Default I will resist those mixed nuts!

I have passed by all types of sweets here in the office in the past month. However, today there is a large container of mixed nuts that is just driving me nuts. I just can not get those nuts off my mind! I know that nuts are not unhealthy but if I eat a bite, I will eat too many.

I don't have a food scale or a measuring cup so I can not measure a single helping. Even if I could measure a single serving, I would have consequences:

1- One serving would not satisfy me, so I would be right back to where I am now, wanting to eat nuts.
2 - I would have to either reduce my planned foods for tonight or go over my calorie plan.

Getting to 199 is much more important than being satisfied the 2 or 3 minutes that it would take me to eat those nuts. I am repeating that over and over!

Thank you!

Keep coming on here and hanging with us "nuts"!

Repeat after me: No No Nuts! No No Nuts! Hey that could be a chant too!

Yep..I would stay away. I had some mixed nuts over the holidays and was appalled at how much salt they have. I had to brush salt off them to eat them and they were not worth the calories, time, or salty fingers.

I buy unsalted nuts and add my own salt. I count out how many I'm going to have that day and that's it.

I had this problem with M&M's last night. They were calling to me from the top shelf of the pantry. They're not even mine! They were a stocking stuffer to my husband. I actually said good-night to them as I headed up to bed. LOL! If I can resist M&M's, possibly the world's greatest food, you can resist nuts!

I have the same problem. Mine right now is with Oreo Cakesters. My fiancee got a case of 18 2 packs from his family - and I sit here thinking I WANT SOME!!! I love them, but they are 250 calories a pack!

With the Nuts, M&Ms, and Cakesters - lets all repeat:

ITS NOT WORTH IT! ITS NOT WORTH IT!

Sounds like you are winning this battle! 199 feels so much better than a few nuts.

You can stay strong! I know how hard it is though when something is right in front of you! Just think about how good you will feel when you are at goal weight!!

I am glad I am not the only one that talks to my food. LOL



Keep saying no! I think seeing the 199 on the scale will be well worth it!

These are left over from all the holiday food. They were put out by the coffee pot today with hopes that someone would eat them. This is like a gallon size can.

You can do it! Repeat after me, 'I am in control, I am in control, I am in control.'

I had the same problem with nuts, I didn't allow my bf to keep them in the house. But, then I kept repeating this mantra and it worked! I can eat 6 brazil nuts or 12 almonds and stop there. Oh and I only eat raw nuts.

I had the same problem today with chocolate. I had a craving all day for it, finally I bought a bar of chocolate with the intention of only haveing one square, but when I found myself with a second piece I threw the chocolate bar away. It's wasteful, but at least I don't feel guilty.

You can do it! You are in control!
