Yes, that really helps a lot. I guess I'm lucky that I like making preparations, planning everything ahead can be fun. But one of my problems is that I don't always follow the plan, and I tend to sabotage myself.It's always good to be prepared for the week ahead.
Thanks! It's funny though. Knowing that I have them, but I'm not going to touch them feels really empowering. It's not a huge internal battle, it's not like I'm drooling over them like crazy. I guess that's how 'normal' people feel about food. I've done this before where I've resisted the urge to binge, and the sense of pride in that feels great. However, the downside is that when things get bad, I eat double or even triple the amount, or for months on end. Like an alcoholic who's fallen off the wagon. It's just something I have to work on. Emotional eating is tough.Well done on resisting the chocolates, my Mum is also a feeder so I know exactly how you feel.
