I have several triggers. My husband travels for his job so I am often home alone in the evening. I get bored and lonely and eat for something to do. Instead of eating mindlessly I will find something to do instead. I will spend part of the evening cleaning. I can also play my keyboard or work on a puzzle.
Certain foods are also triggers. I can't have certain foods in the house or I will eat the until they are gone. These include cheese puffs, homemade cookies or brownies. This is easy to avoid. Just don't buy the cheese puffs. When I want to bake, I can bake only a few cookies and freeze the rest of the dough.
A big part of my problem is my mindset. When I am focused and weigh or measure everything I can stay in track. I just need to find my focus again.
