Elvis, that is exactly why I never partake in any work lunch stuff or work food ANYTHING, unless I see it brought in from take out. Or in a sealed container. Even then. Gahhh.

Sarita, I think the best way to overcome both work and at home temptations, are to rid of it. I understand at work you probably don't have much of a say.

At home, it could also be challenging but doable. What I myself have done with my boyfriend, is any chips, cookies, snacks, candy.. anything really tempting (the temptation DOES simmer down as mines basically gone now). I asked him to keep those things somewhere "hidden". It could be behind a cook book, or a can of pop far in the back of the fridge. Anything so it's not in plain view has helped a lot.

On the flip side, now that I've gotten over my "crazy cravings", I actually WANT those things in front of me. I want him to eat them in front of me. I want to go to a social gathering and have all my friends devour a pizza and chips and cake. Because this is a lifelong thing. It's not just a diet, it's a lifestyle change. And I've chosen to not live under a rock. I need my socialization just as bad as anyone else, and for that, there's going to be A LOT of times I'll need to discipline myself. So far I haven't caved much (other than a few vodkas Saturday nights). But since I'm going to be at this lifestyle for life, I want to get used to being surrounded by temptation, and have the strength to resist. Now mind you it's taken a few months to this point. But it DOES get easier.
