C:Stack of cupcakes in hairdressers while waiting for appointment
T:I’m feeling grumpy. They look so delicious but Brooke says I need to live with this.
F: Curious. Grumpy
A: Sit and stare at them thinking how delicious they look.
R: Live with it but feel deprived and grumpy.
Then suddenly a new thought came
T: Cupcakes don’t solve my problems.
E: Acknowledgement. Sad for all the times I’d used them for emotional eating.
A: Look at them and they seem smaller!
R: knowing cupcakes don’t solve my problems.
I am hoping you will say this is an example of desire deconditioning.
