I have more control because even if I have cookies- the serving is limited.
I do that too, I pack breakfast (I work out on my way to the office then eat breakfast when I get there), lunch, fruit and I have dried fruit in my desk drawer for those times when I run out of the snacks I've taken in. Some days I go to Spanish class from work and I take another meal in for that too. I carry so much food around!
I'm also getting far better at planning my menus for the week in advance. So I go to the supermarket on Sunday and work out what I'm going to cook every night that week and buy the ingredients for it. I don't have much unhealthy stuff in the house anyway to binge on, but if I've got planned meals it's a lot easier to ignore them.
I also have a fairly fixed exercise plan, I get up every weekday morning to go to the gym, and pack my bags the night before (including all the food which is in a bag in the fridge), set the alarm, and set my clothes out.
Planning, planning, planning.
(but in amongst that, I allow myself some leeway, so I know that during the day I can have a little unplanned treat if i want one without completely sabotaging myself)
