Resisting temptation

A lot of people have said to me "how do I stay on plan when I work at a coffee/donut shop". Well it's no secret really I just take my own food and don't buy any food at work. The only time would buy something is maybe some chicken noodle soup if I've forgotten my food or a mini whole wheat bun to go with what I take.

For myself this is the only way I can stay on plan. I cannot eat 1/2 a donut and put the other down. I know myself very well, moderation is not in my dna. Everyone's different but that's what works for me. I bought some Sara Lee pound cake portions this week and they are individually wrapped and when I got them home I said to myself if I over eat them or eat them when they are not planned they won't come back in my house. So far I've only had one planned one and I'm quite happy with that.

I know my triggers and I simply cannot have them in the house. Period!

How do you resist temptation?
