    Wonderful tips! Thanks for sharing. In the past, I've called this flexing my "resistance" muscle. Going to add it back into my program. Thanks again!

    Strengthening tools! Yes! Thanks for the shout out...

The environment thing is one of my biggest downfalls, especially if I am stressed. That's why I really liked 4HEALTHYMBMI's blogs about willpower and controlling impulses too. They made me see that - when it comes to certain foods - my body engages before the brain does. Out-of-sight-out-of-mind works well at home but since most of life is lived outside of the home, the temptations are everywhere. So, retraining the brain needs to happen. It's nice to know I am normal and not alone in that regard.

My son eats. He eats until he is full. He doesn't crave anything. He doesn't get excited over cake or cookies or brownies. It's all just food to him. I'm not sure I will ever have a normal relationship with food. So, I will keep trying to find strategies that work until they don't work.

Congrats on refrraming the DD while you were in the moment!

  I have often went to someone eles blog when I see in the status feed that someone i know commented. And just last night I was watching the phillies game and i wanted a donut. or cake. or anything of that consistency. but there was none in my envirement. lol
I usually bake high fiber pumpkin muffins around now, they would have been perfect.
