Thoughts to help with urges?

I’m following a food protocol and have been listening to Brooke’s advanced weight loss videos, specifically the one about replacing fat identity. What an ah ha as I’ve been “struggling” to lose the last 15-20 pounds for 5 years after losing 70.

So I’ve realized that I have an identity shift to make. What great news!

Today at work, I was following my protocol and then got stressed and had such an urge to eat. I felt the stress and processed the urges (5 beads in my urge jar). I guess my question is, if it felt really tense and hard, I’m guessing I was resisting? Or no because I’m supposed to “let it be hard”?

I think what I’m trying to figure out is if this is cognitive dissonance, changing neural pathways or resisting? Thanks!
