    Okay laugh if you want to but it keeps me in check. Anywhere I have a weakness to snack or ruin myself, I place a picture of myself at my heaviest. I have one on the fridge, on the stove, I have it on my phone background. I have the reminder of what I am working to get away from and it keeps me from blowing it... ,lol

    I'm exactly the same, why eat breakfast at 7am if you're not hungry at 7am??

    Though this could be because I work crazy hours in hospitality, my work and eating times get a bit unconventional! I get comments and looks for not eating the most important meal of the day...... but I AM - just when I'm ready for it :-)

    I must admit sometimes I have the problem of picking at things unnecessarily....... listening to my salivating mouth not my content stomach. Great advice with gum and brushing your teeth... I'm going to give it a go! :-)

    Research indicates that if you eat breakfast within 1 hour of waking up it gives your metabolism a kick start. If you wait too long then your metabolism stays a bit sluggish all day.... xxx :heart:

    Try to exercise before you cook. That always helps me from picking at food. Good luck.
