Help - I want to eat more truffles

I just ate two truffles - which is fine, and I really enjoyed them. But, I have four more in the house and I want to eat them. Now. I can't throw them out (because that might make my wife unhappy).

Ooooh - I'm having sweet cravings tonight too. Can you ask your wife to hide them from you?

Give the truffles to your wife and tell her to hide them from you, and maybe to not let you have more than X per day. A lot of couples and roommates do this with their problem foods, and it works...well, unless the other person has some sick and selfish desire to sabbotage you (been there).

I do the "hide this from me" too. If no one's there to help me out though I get out the step stool and put them on the highest shelf in the house and then put the step stool away. This way I have to make a concerted effort to get whatever it is back down again. It's enough to keep me on my good behavior.

Best wishes!

Be strong! Distract yourself quickly, and stay distracted as long as you possibly can. Then brush your teeth. You just might be able to forget about them.

So, how did the truffles get in the house? Did your wife give them to you? Sounds like it's time for "Honey, I appreciate this, but really, I want to lose weight". My family always has cake or something they're pushing. I just have to keep repeating, "you know, I really, really, really want to lose weight. How about an apple instead?" Actually my dad is the worst as pushing food. He ought to understand, but acts offended and says "you don't want any of my ice cream/cake/whatever!" But I have to hold firm. I know, it's tough.

Put a sticker on the box and label it with your wife's name. If I label food as "not for me," I don't tend to eat it. After awhile, I've gotten to the point of being able to just mentally label things.
