They come 5 to a box. He eats two a day. Sometimes 4 a day on weekends. They're one of his favorite treats (& mine too, dagnabit!!!!) - THANK GODDESS they're only available for a short time during the year. :rolleyes:

So funny because I just went to the grocery store and as I was standing in line these Christmas Cakes were sitting at the top of the food belt. Never saw them before but they looked SO GOOD! And of course I was stuck standing there for longer than normal as the woman in front of me went old school and was paying with a check. I might have gotten them if it weren't for the fight I had with myself a few minutes before about pistachio nuts and why I shouldn't buy that 3 pound bag of them. By then I had my willpower back, thankfully.

Make yourself a cup of hot tea with splenda to satisfy that sweet craving!

Someone on here told me about how they mix cinnamon and splenda and sprinkle it over their 100 calorie bag of popcorn. OMG -- so delicious! That helps me too.

Good luck! STAY STRONG!

I never had any of these snacks when I was a kid, but my ex husband grew up on processed foods. When my ex-MIL went grocery shopping for me after my c-section, she didn't follow my list, but made up her own which included these!

That is probably why I existed on coffee for the first two weeks of my daughter's life. :o

Ugh, I hate it when my boyfriend brings crap food home with him. They seriously just do not get it!

Luckily I have a sly trick, I mention those cookies or whatever he brought into the house very often and it usually makes him crave one and he eats a couple! They are usually gone within 2-4 days. Then they are gone!
He still doesn't know I do this though so shhhhhhh, its our little secret lol

I had a talk with my Husband about stuff like that. Finally he is getting it because we finally decided to make sure we read the labels and most likely it's "poison" for us and especially for out kids.

Is he the kind of husband that can eat such things and it doesn't make him fat? Mine is like that and it's frustrating! lol

Heh... he USED TO BE like that... but in the past few years, he's "aged" (he's 40 now) and he doesn't exercise anymore, so nope... he's quite the chubby-hubby!!! :dizzy: He keeps saying he is going to start exercising & watch his diet, but so far, nada. As Bugs Bunny would say "whatta maroon!!!" :D

My husband made brownies last week. And there's nothing I love more than homemade brownies. It's really hard having a naturally thin person in the house even though he does use pretty reasonable portion control.

I have to remind myself not to take losing weight too far. The more unreasonable I am (no treats, banned foods, tiny portions) the less likely I am to stick with it to reach or maintain my goal weight. For me it's a about getting the right equation. One dessert isn't going to kill you (unless you're a food addict, in which case completely disregard); you just need to balance it out somewhere else. And I'll gladly eat less dinner one night if I get to have a brownie. :)

OP ~ My DH used to do that too, but not so much anymore -- but, just like ISIS, I would remind him often, so he'll eat them faster (becuz he would forget). I have another trick that works well for me: I purposely buy things that I know I don't like that much. He & guests still get a snack, but I can pass it by ...

Also, I only buy or serve a small amount (ie one dozen light shortbread which my Dh likes); and I make sure to have lots of healthier snacks available that I can have on my plan. I buy SALT-FREE nuts, so I won't eat too many; and serve things like olives, pickles, cheeses, LF meat, wg crackers, popcorn, etc.

Then, after Christmas, I give away anything that I don't want -- one year, we had loads of Halloween candy leftover, so we donated it all to our local food bank; and they were very grateful for it.



Husbands are the first child ...

:lol: I often tell my husband this -- he is my biggest child and our furry baby is second to him ... ;) Btw, my DH is one of those very thin men who can eat anything too.

Great idea -- will have to try that one; thanks for sharing!

Oh, don't get me wrong - I have my treats! - but certain things, like those LDXTC? - if I eat one, it's a downward spiral from there. I am painfully aware of my trigger foods. Those dadgum xmas tree cakes are one of them. GrumbleGrumbleB*tchMoanWhine :^:

My hubby does this too!!! FINALLY this last month he has learned that if he brings in treats, don't make it things I love! There are plenty of bad foods he likes that I could take or leave...don't bring in my favorites cause that's just mean. If he acts mean, then I get mean, :lol: And no, my DH is not a small thing, matter of fact it's a running joke on when the baby is due. I kid you not, a SOLID round belly, and since he has a bit of a hernia, it mimicks the belly button of a due lady too, :rofl: He would so not like if he knew I posted this, but it seemed to flow with the conversation ;)

My husband is 22 (almost 23) and can eat practically anything and it doesn't do anything at all. He stays in his weight range of 185-200 lbs. He could lose a little but *shrug*. I'll laugh when he's about 40 and it's caught up to him. :) Women age better ...usually. :) Plus I'm actually older (by 3 years, 8 months, some days lol) and I look younger than my age...so that will be plus. :)

I'm 8 years older than my hubby. For years now I've been whining about my "age-related aches & pains" & he hasn't had much to say... until recently. Now he "OHs!" and "AHs!" just about every time he stands up or sits down :lol: yeah, that'll teach'm! ;)

Make sure he eats all of the cakes before you kill him...no point in having them around when he's gone tee-hee.

Yeah, I understand. My husband--who normally is not a sweet eater---decided to pick up a box of dark chocolate cherry cordials from the gourmet aisle in T.J. Maxx the other day. I just had two (for 50 calories each). I could easily eat the entire box, but I'm resisting.

Ha ha, I bought a box of those things right before I started getting back with the program. They are so good. Interesting... when I bought them years ago there were 10 in a box the same size as the box that now holds 5. :)

My dh will bring home treats and then not eat them. And if I ask if I can throw them out he says "no, I'm going to eat that".

I had to stare at the thanksgiving pie for 2 1/2 weeks while he refused to throw it out. Granted after about a week it lost its allure and when mold finally started to grow on it a couple days ago, I tossed it. (yes, he asked "Why did you eat my pie?")

When I was half way through my weight loss I ended up buying a box just not xmas trees.. I ate about a bite and realized it really does NOT taste that good.. I could taste the fakeness of the little cake and I just threw it away. It really was not worth the calories.

Omgsh, I am in love with those christmas tree cakes. I always have been, as has my twin sister. We were never allowed stuff like that as kids, and I think that made things worse as adults because then we could buy them ourselves and we crave them all the time.
Luckily, hubby doesn't care for really sweet stuff. He's one of those perfectly healthy people who can eat truckloads of terrible food and not worry about gaining weight. Grr. At least he's not naturally fit. He's just naturally thin, which is a slap in the face in itself!

my BF is like that and he can eat whatever he wants it kills me.... But my parents are like that too they eat junk food all the time and are really over weight and they bring doughnut holes from Krispy Kream all the time and i am like i dont need them i and trying to drop weight. so i have only had 3 out of a box of 24 in 4 days.

oh man! another one of my "trigger foods"!

it's been "tradition" every year for my father & I to share a box of cordial chocolate cherries at xmas time. I quit buying them for him because I know he won't WAIT until I leave to start eating them, LOL - but of course he still buys them for himself. ACK!

One thing's for sure, since I have been working on cutting down on my sugar intake, things like the xmas tree cakes & the cordial chocolate cherries are WAY OVER-SWEET to me now. While I may CRAVE THEM, I know that eating them makes me feel SICK. Just TOO DADGUM sweet!! Maybe I can consider that a NSV? :^:

That is definitely an NSV!! And I am the same way... the junk just stops tasting good after a while and makes me sick too

Ugh, my hubbo is the same. He's naturally thin. And by naturally thin, I mean that he is very active and has a built-in sense of portion control. Classic eyes are bigger than stomach...I hate when he goes shopping with me because he'll always want huge portions of things, and pick out all this junk food. He'll buy a whole pie and only eat one slice. Ugh, or cheesecake. He loves it, but once he's had a piece of it he won't want another piece for at least a month or two. So then I'm stuck with 80% of a cheesecake, one of my biggest triggers, staring at me.

gah. lol, he bought a 5 lb tin of Danish butter cookies from Sam's last time we went. luckily, I don't like them because he'll eat a few at a time every few days...those cookies are going to be in my kitchen for a while.
