I do, too. I, too, count calories, and there are times when I can have food in the house, measure out a portion, and be fine with it. However, the past few months have not been like this. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I kept trying to fool myself that I could have goodies in the house and eat them moderately, but I kept failing to do that. So, these past two weeks, I have been much better at keeping certain foods out of the house. I've caved a couple of times in the grocery store, but not nearly as much as I had been.
The key for me is keeping the trigger food out of sight! If there is a pint of ice cream in the fridge, it will not last one day.
