    You may want to create some go to foods, meals, and snacks for yourself and then store them in a separate area in the kitchen than your family members. If you buy frozen stuff maybe you can just say the left side is for them and the right side is for your stuff or if it can't stay that separate just label your food and like you said mind over matter tell yourself that YOUR stuff has a label on it with YOUR name and anything that doesn't have YOUR name on it is not YOUR food :-) It may sound silly or petty but I think of it as a good exercise for the mind the more times we create mini habits for ourselves and follow through the more you can prob. stick with them and make it a true lifestyle change :-) Good luck!

    I've enjoyed getting a glimpse into your life. I applaud the fact that you know it's early days still for you and you're being very mindful of the pace you set for yourself. Spot on, spot on! If it works for you and your family -that's all that matters.

    Good job. I also struggle with "off-limits food" in my house. I will not buy it, or in a very small quantity that is shared between 5 people. My husband is the kid's source. They talk him into stuff...chips, candy, etc... He is amazed at how fast it is gone around here.

    I remember spending a week with a BF in a cabin on a vacation. We went to get food. He was normal weight and could eat what he wanted without gaining an ounce. I am always watching what I eat as I gain easily. Even at times in my life when I was normal weight. I don't want someone to have to not get what they liked because of me. I never made it an issue. It was hard for me and I did eat some of his chips and some of his ice cream. I tried to be mindful and knew this was my issue and something I need to deal with. I understand when you say it is not easy having those things in the house. I will buy one cookie and don't bring a bag in. I wish I could do what your Dad does and only eat two pieces of candy a day but if it was there I would have many more.

    Keep strong, you can do it!

    I know no boundaries - my house - my fridge- my food. I could never wrap my mind around separate foods for individuals in same household. No one ever had the guts to stand up to me on that. Anyway- I've been solo many years and that meant anything here is mine .... I don't invite troublesome foods. On the flip side I don't touch food in my family's houses either.... what's there is theirs, and I only eat what is served on my plate. I think that's fair, Right?
