> > if you have that amazing virtue of will power, then try buying your favorite treat in single serving versions, almost everything comes in them now...try brushing your teeth when a craving hits, kinda kills the mood for sweets...maybe chewing gum would help?...also exercise--a walk, if i have the will-power (that again!) really helps me when i am craving

I submitted with no message. What I wanted to say was that I have lost 40 pounds over a year and a half by cutting fat and exercising more. I have a sweet tooth. I eat sweets, but not fatty ones(except occassionally:) I reccommend fudgecicles, red licorice, hard candy, marshmallows, sherbet, popsicles, Sweetarts, etc.
Also, don't give up your very favorite thing! I still eat pizza once a week, and I eat as much as I want. I find giving myself permission for this one indulgence helps me to not feel deprived. I liked the post about doing good things for yourself. I finally decided after being overweight for over a decade that I deserve to look good and be healthy, and that I prefer being thin over eating everything I feel like. I also believe you have to think of it as your healthy new lifestyle, not a temporary thing. If you go back to eating lots of fatty foods, you just gain the weight back and feel bad about yourself. If you exercise and take vitamins and herbal supplements, this helps you get into the mood of doing healthy things for yourself. Best of luck to you all. I am living proof that we can change things for ourselves to make ourselves feel better about at least parts of ourselves.
Now if I could only quit berating myself for all the stupid things I do because of ADD/depression...Oh,, well, one problem at a time!
