That bag of oreos is calling my name!

I bought a bag of Oreos sunday for my kids because they asked for some. They have eaten like two maybe... The whole bag is sitting there and I freaking LOVE LOVE LOVE Oreos. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am proud though. I haven't touched them!

Remember the slogan!!! JUST SAY NO, but instead of to drugs and alcohol, this time it's to the cookies that our families tempt us with!!

YOu can resist the temptation!!!!

Or the other classic line: "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels!"

Remember "moment on lips, inches on hips"

look at colorie content and determing how much exercise you will have to do to burn these off.

I am not about deprevation. First you shouldnt have bought them if you know they are a weakness food. Let your kids eat oreos somewhere else- or get individual servings.
That being said you bought them and now they are in the house. If you are dying for one, get a glass of lf soy milk and 1 oreo. Go sit a the table and slowly enjoy it. Really take each bite and tast how it feels in your mouth. now just add a few minutes to your walk or exercise.

OP here

You know, it makes no sense at all to tell someone to deprive their children of a cookie because they happen to be dieting. The children eat healthy any other time and there is no reason to not purchase something for them because I have low will power.

That was a dumb response.

Thanks everyone else for your nice responses. I havent eaten any.

I dont think the person said not to buy it. I think its not polite when someone asks for advice and calls the advice dumb. Remember, you asked for advice.

10:27 here

HOw the HELL was my first response not "nice". If you dont have the willpower to limit your food dont have it around you?!?!?!

You will notice I said the buy individual servings in which they can eat them and you dont have to. It might also teach them portion controll.

and then I suggested an option of only having enough to satisfy your craving.
My whole psot started with: I am not about deprevation

They do actually sell oreos in 6-cookie packages.

What I do if I have stuff like that (bought for my bf, who does not live with me but does leave his food here) sitting around and it is bothering me is either throw it out or stick it in the freezer. Although for some reason, I prefer frozen and microwaved Oreos, so for that particular food I just throw them out.

My husband still has snacks in the house that I love too.... especially these Chips Ahoy chocolate and peanut butter cookies, yummy!.... aaaah, where was I?
Oh yeah, I tell him to put them where I can't see them. It's a whole lot easier than opening the cupboard and seeing them there!

I agree with the small serving sizes, it also means that your kids won't binge on them either, remember too much of a bad thing ...... and your kids could end up fat.
That way you can enjoy a little taste yourself without the remorse
