Pam - have you read Dr. Phil's The Ultimate Weight Solution - the 7 Keys to Weight Loss Freedom? I have found it very, very helpful in my weight loss. One of his keys is "A No-fail Environment" and I think it will help you, too. The first sentence in the chapter is "You can't eat what's not there." I'm assuming your mother would want what's best for your health. It took me awhile to be okay with throwing away food, too, but now I don't even blink, lol. Better down the garbage disposal than causing health and emotional problems for us, right?
Pop on over the the "Weight Loss Talk" thread and join us there, ok? We're in the midst of listing our particular challenges.... hope to see you there again!
