    AND not eating my 2 1/2 year old's left over mac and cheese!

    I'm good at not eating my daughters leftovers, but she is big into feeding me from her plate right now. A person cannot refuse food from a 2 year old when it makes her so happy to give it to you.

    I don't believe in will power. I believe in fitting in so much good stuff into your every day life first that you don't have room for much of that isn't quite the best choice. After a while being balanced is so much of your normal lifestyle, that no will power is needed. You just live like a healthy person and know that you're treating your physical and emotional well-being right.

    Oh man, that is the hardest for me! It barely makes it to the trash before I devour left overs. I have to immediately throw away any left overs (if there are any as I try to cook exactly how much we will eat) because if I try to save it for another lunch/meal, I end up eating it that night....or while I am putting it in tubberware. lol

    Easy for me frankly. They put their hands everywhere and often in their food... Ew no thanks!!!

    But when they buy pretzels or want cookies or want me to make them an ice cream cone... it gets tougher.

    .....having a donut and not the whole box of donuts.

    .....having a serving or 2 of ice cream and not the whole container.

    .....having a cookie or 2, etc. etc.

    I just make it fit in my calories if I want it.

    Now a Micky Pretzel I have every time I go to Disney World, we go once a month. :bigsmile:

    ordering a redeye coffee from starbucks instead of my usual mocha soy latte. It was difficult for me but the redeye was really good. We had treats over this past weekend so I didn't need any more sugar or extra stuff. I was proud of myself!

    Willpower is, walking by that pretzel stand knowing that you can have one anytime you want as long as it fits your macros, today, tomorrow and the next day, not giving it another glance because food doesn't control you, you control it and walking right by.

    leaving almost half of a beautifully cooked, utterly delicious, juicy, thick ribeye on the plate, because i know if i devour all of it i'll be way over my calories for the day... and that includes eating back my exercise calories.
