Thanks! I've started adding peanut butter to my breakfast in the morning! I think it helps keep off cravings.

I've joked about the not-being-alone thing before. I understand that emotions are a factor but I think for me it has to do more with the freedom I feel when I'm alone. It has nothing to do with my living arrangements or my boyfriend. Despite their junky habits, they're very supportive of my quest for health.
I've taken to posting photos and recipes on the fridge and pantry to keep me from eating unhealthy snacks (or at least choosing better options). I'm happy to report that I'm 3 days with no binge!
