Thanks for the support everyone.
I hope I will one day be able to keep the rest in the freezer and eat just one but at the moment I'm not the yet.

yes i understand how you feel . have you ever thought about feeding the children in the neighborhood ? or do you have grandchildren to feed them some .? with so much want in this world perhaps the local senior center would enjoy getting the bounty . just a thought .do not beat yourself up over this situation . just roll with it . forgive and go on with life . you can do this . we understand .

It makes good sense. I often recommend just that - especially when someone else gives it to me and I don't want to hurt their feelings. The cost of eating them would probably be more than the cost of throwing them away.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Waste it, don't waist it. Don't use your body as a garbage can. I try to remember these. I think you did great. I often throw out my kids leftovers very quickly to stop myself! Needs must!

Well done!

Never give up, never quit, never surrender

You only fail when you stop trying

There is nothing to hold you back except you.

You can press forward long after you canít. Itís a matter of wanting it bad enough.

The bad news is: we are our own worst enemies. The good news is: we are our own greatest champions.

Dr Phil says "If it aint there, it cant be eaten" so emoticon on enabling your healthy life style. You do whatever it takes.

I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

It sure does. Here's what I do. Like you I freeze rolled up balls of cookie dough and bake me one thawed cookie at a time. So I can't binge.
What you don't buy and bring home you can't eat.

You rock for the positive attitude. Keep up the good work

...bc I was worried I'd overeat.
I made them specifically to comfort eat, not eat the whole batch but still for comfort.

I chucked them, waste isn't good but neither is overeating.

I tried the freezing the dough and baking small batches but frozen dough is yummy in itself.

I feel uncomfortable.
It's almost like "ok, I didn't eat them but all this still emotionally triggered, the baking, the eating but also the throwing it away out of fear"

Does that make sense?
