How to Stop Your Smacker

My top 5 tricks for preventing unnecessary eating:
  1. Always have lipstick and LOTS of gloss on.
  2. Wear the tightest pants possible w/out muffin top.
  3. Look at old "skinny" pics.
  4. Blog.
  5. Pray or recite scripture I have memorized.
What are yours?

I really love these ideas!!! Prayer alone has helped me so much. I am always like God Please help me when I feel overwhelmed with the urge to eat bad foods. It has helped me tremendously. Thanks for posting these. I need to go make my lips beautiful

Great ideas! It's true that one is less likely to shove something in their mouth when lipstick or gloss is on! Some of mine:

1. Prayer/scripture
2. Chew gum
3. Get a drink of Water

LOVE that gloss!

Water and hot tea really helps. Also, before I binge/emotional eat, I remind myself how painful the after-guilt always is, and a lot of times that's enough to stop me from doing it. Most of the time, it's really NOT worth it!

I always use the lipstick trick, and also always chew gum when I'm cooking to keep myself from snacking! I also try to remind myself that the snacking is only going to put me a step behind in my weight loss!

I love the lipstick trick. I am not much of a makeup person, but I seriously think I am going to be breaking out the CoverGirl LipStain again.

My biggest one is having a buddy. When I get stressed out I turn to the wife or text the best friend for a pep talk that keeps me out of the fridge.

brush your teeth, I hate the taste of toothpaste combined with food. Especially if you use mouthwash too!

Cry! lol just kidding =D I go do something else to distract me like blog or read blogs,clean up, or chew gum. Its so much easier not to munch when I am at work because I am too busy. The weekends are my enemy! Great ideas =D
