Work and family gatherings are the worst! I try to bring a flavored yogurt and my favorite fruit so I get to enjoy a treat along with everyone else. So far this has been working when I’m aware and can plan ahead, when I can’t then I stay far away (other end of the room), so I’m not tempted by smell or sight. If it is right under my nose then sometimes I use mental reminders of the size I was and how I felt before to keep me on track now. It’s so hard to get off sugar, I try to stay far away from it now.
