... Biscuits. Just can't stop eating them.
What's your weak spot - and how do you resist temptation?

Chocolate, all types cakechocolate

PebbleTTC Mon 14-Mar-16 20:28:05

I'd eat it all day every day, breakfast lunch and dinner

How do you stop yourself Pebble?

RunnerOnTheRun Mon 14-Mar-16 20:45:18

Just stop buying them!

RunnerOnTheRun Mon 14-Mar-16 20:45:47

oh and wine. Bloody love the stuff. I only buy it on a Friday for a Friday now. It's soooo hard though but you get used to it.

Chocolate and carbs

gamerchick Mon 14-Mar-16 20:48:08

Full sugar fizzy drinks. I always gain mega fast when I drink them.

Crisps are my weakness though so I simply don't buy them. Don't buy any biscuits man wink

My complete lack of will power, hatred of exercise, love of cars and amazing ability to procrastinate.

I try to only buy the ones I don't like (2 teenage boys moan if there are no biscuits in the house) but I'll eat them too!

gamerchick Mon 14-Mar-16 21:18:03

Buy the ingredients and show them how to bake. It could backfire but hopefully general teenage laziness will kick in and they won't bother.

gamerchick Mon 14-Mar-16 21:18:35

Or let them moan. Strap a pair on man grin

The fact that 1400 cals allows me to only maintain rather than lose!

1400 is nothing! <glares at MFP >

No room for error!

Peanut butter, cheeky small glass of vino, almonds, it's not even as if my treats are interesting. Feasting I am not.

Grrrr. 👙

oldlaundbooth Mon 14-Mar-16 21:20:43

That's a bikini that I am decisively NOT fitting into < the fact that I am holidaying in the UK this summer is beside the point >

I've wondered about MFP calorie count too. It used to be standard 2k per day for a woman but MFP says not...I came out as 1600 and can get thro that in digestives no problem!

I don't stay away from them that's why I'm overweight blushsad

AuntieStella Mon 14-Mar-16 21:38:36

Toast, butter and marmite.

I have to cut it out completely, because I can eat piles of it once I'm started.

Bread. sad I love it. I love all the yummy flavours from Co-op. I love a fresh french baguette. Sigh.

Biscuits here too, so I simply don't buy them generally.
That and just generally eating too much wink

I think the 2000 cals is outdated and was based on a time when people were generally more active- not as in , the gym, but just in the course of their lives. When I lived in London I walked to work every day- 40 mins each way. I could easily eat 2000 cals then, but v few people do that much "incidental" exercise. My SIL put on 2 stone in a year when she changed jobs and swapped 1 hour walk for driving. I know they say exercise isnt a good weightloss tool, but it's pretty effective at stopping you putting it on in the first place.

In the spirit of the thread, my downfall is sweets, especially liquorice allsorts. Love them!!

Hunger.
I'm all fired up, low carbing, no wine, my treats are Greek yoghurt and almonds. But I just eat too much, I'm so darn hungry.

gamerchick Wed 16-Mar-16 09:53:39

I knowni couldn't do 2000 cals a day, If I go over 1400 regularly I gain weight and I'm pretty active.
