dont you hate it when

people around you know that you're trying to change your eating habits, but they still come around and offer you the things you've been telling them that you dont eat anymore? I'm in phase I of FSD and my co-workers know that for the past week i havent had any "unhealthy" food. So why are they all bombarding me with b'day cake? They're all saying, "oh come on, one little piece wont kill you". Mind you, they are all a bunch of size 6s and 8s.

yes, i hate it. ultimately, we control what we ingest, but other people really do make it so hard.

It's coz they don't understand. For them, one piece probably "won't hurt". But for some of us "one piece" and trigger a 3 slice binge (or worse). Thin people don't understand this....that's why their thin and we're on PT doing the FSD. It's all about reshaping your mind. Don't worry, one day soon you'll have that kind of mindset and "one piece won't hurt" you either : ) Hang tough!

That is one of the hardest things about changing your eating habits. it's no different than a drug addict - all you have to do is see your addiction,and you can easily fall back into it. If you can resist the urge, more power to you, you'll soon find it easier to resist every time. if you happen to bargain with yourself and say "I'll just have one bite", then have just one small bite and throw the rest of it in the garbage (a garbage can far away from your desk!). You'll do better the next time someone offers you something.

137 hit the nail on the head. i agree 100%. i tell people all the time that cooking healthy is no big deal. but, then again, i'm a chef. i find it very difficult to understand why some people can't cook when it seems to come so easily to me. unless you have been in the same "place" as someone else, it can be very hard to really understand their struggles.
