My downfall for snacking and losing will power to resist treats happens for me late at night. I go to bed quite late but my hubby goes much earlier because he starts so early in the morning. I am really very good about self control and will power during the day but while I am sitting on my own watching telly and winding down after hectic days I tend to start snacking to the point where I often do not stop. So my new plan is to put the treats in the bedroom .... near hubby's side of the bed, in very noisy crinkly plastic bags and tin foil and seed them with Christmas bells. This way it will make so much noise getting a snack and I will feel horribly guilty if I wake up hubby.:zz: (I suppose I could try the no snacks in the house approach, but I recently got a delivery of imported snacks that I love from South Africa, and these arrive in a big box about 3 times a year. A real treat to someone who did not grow up here).
