Today was my first true test with an URGE. I've always been a stress eater-since I was a kid.

Today was a truly BAD day, and as I was driving home, I really wanted to pull into any fast food place and buy French fries.

I did not.

I'm also an ex-smoker, so I have gone through this before and overcome...

It does make me re-evaluate what my triggers are, and today in general was one of them. Six months ago, I would have gotten a huge burger and huge fries to "make me feel better" about things.

I have not read his book, but I've gone through enough therapy to know that first you need to understand the problem before you can then change the mindset and deal with it.

I am feeling pretty good about making it home without getting fries tonight!
