Stay strong! emoticon

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

MISSYMOM1002 can you re-use the hershey's kisses for valentines day on the kids valentine's day cards?
Also I might suggest you try what we do in our house. You cannot bring sweets into the house anymore unless you are a child and they are from a party or gift from school. For the kids they have 1 week to either eat the candy or it needs to be given away to another person outside your house.
For parents or other adults in the house the kids candy is off limits and if you want something sweet then you must walk to the location you need to purchase the sweet and you can only purchase a single serving size no new sweets can be brought back to the house with you. If it does not come in a single serving pack you need to get rid of the extra servings before you get home and it is off limits to give it to the kids. This is a solo trip. It has worked amazingly well for our family and we did this when my Mother-in-law was diagnosed with diabetes and she watches out 10 year old after school so we did not want things in the house that would not be good for her to eat. i do still Bake low fat, no added refined sugar things that we all can have. sweets are also for special occasions not an everyday treat.
I hope you consider this for your family or at least a modified version

I don't have kids around to ask for sweets, but I would imagine that makes this even harder. I still worry every time that I go to the store that I'll buy chocolate, especially the dark chocolate kisses! But I have been strong since the end of December, and you can too!

Gosh, you sound just like me!

I think that you're definitely on the right track. You keep it up, and hopefully the both of us will fight against these sweets!

ok for me, i want to kick my sweet tooth for a few reasons.
1. my kids don't need this stuff around
2. i sure don't need it around for my health or waist line
3. it gets pricey!

i find that i have been eating sweets almost every day. if i have it in the house, i will eat a few servings a day until its gone. i can go a few weeks without buying any and i feel great about it and then i cave and it starts all over again. i have a BIG weakness with chocolate and since christmas we have basically had hershey's kisses in the house almost constantly :/ those are gone and i'm going to be going to the store this week. so afraid i will cave
