I say No after 7pm to food, I have a hard time with this for some reason, So I "Just say NO" when I think i want something to eat. It has worked wonders for me. Put up a Green light, yellow light and red light (picture of course) on your fridge or cabinets or wherever you get side tracked, switch the sign according to your calories, and at the end of the day the RED stop signal will remind you!!!22724104
A friend of mine keeps an 80's dance mix CD in his car. Whenever he's stopped at a red light, he puts the CD on and does isometrics on his butt. Not only does he have a great tush, but he really doesn't mind red lights or traffic snarl ups anymore!
