Very useful notes, Louise and all.
I have been starting to use both tools this week and I find much more challenging Plans, because for me it requires to be absolutely sincere, fair and clear with myself from the beginning, and the addictive desire is much more powerful once you have been eating.
I am trying to challenge myself guessing and trying better each time and the more difficulty is that I know, from the beginning, that the addictive desire will be there waiting for me, and sometimes I am scared.
Times is feeling easier, because I am realizing how many many many times I used to eat just because the food was available. What I do sometimes, is to expose on purpose to me to the food, looking at it and experience and being conscious of the food staying there and me deciding not to eat it. It is so powerful, being able to coexist with it out of my stomach!
