Default First real moment of wanting something I can't have

Today is Australia Day, in-laws visiting (which poses the 'I don't want to be obviously on a diet' problem), anyway we had a BBQ for dinner which was no dramas but I made pavlova for dessert and I felt like having a toddler tantrum as I wanted it eat it SO badly.

I also make ice cream and the homemade ice cream was just further torture. Even as I was baking the pavolova and the meringue was whipping it was driving me nuts but I got through it and thought today I wouldn't feel tempted

Just had to vent to people who understand and can appreciate my effort to not even lick my finger that slipped into the cream as I was serving, still feel like I want to cry! It's just food!! Reminding myself my will power 'muscle' is getting stronger arghhhh!!

In 2015 it felt like I had to make more pans of brownies, cookies, and other non-protocol foods for events than at any other time in my life

Good job! I completely understand. I started Phase 1 in late October and had to cook for Thanksgiving, Christmas and two December birthdays. All kinds of foods I loved that weren't OK to eat! And, when I cook, I usually "taste" to check for spices, and couldn't even do that - argh...... But it was worth it, as I continued to lose and am close to goal. You did great! Keep it up! Cheers!

Fitandhappy, this is me today. I am an emotional eater and I have ALL the emotions today.

Trying to stay strong. I did very, very well yesterday and the day before. I don't want to ruin it, but oh, the comfort food is calling.

Anybody have any words or wisdom (or distraction) or tricks they use in these moments?

I hope your day improves, stay strong my only 'tool' was to continually drink water. I baked today for my kids to go back to school next week and again it was torturous but I kept drinking my water and have had a cookies and cream restricted bar for my afternoon snack. I also remind myself where I want to be and the quickest way there is being 100% OP so that helps a bit too.
