just remember that a "b-flat attack" will happen to almost everybody. they still happen to me sometimes because I teach students on BBb and constantly think BBb fibgerings, but play a CC. Now, onto your question.
the other suggestions were good, but to add to them i would suggest that you find 3 or four pieces that you already know on BBb, and play them on CC. I know it seems goofy, but your ears will help your fingers find the new fingerings more than your fingerings will want to go back to the way they used to be. I don't mean the gregson or anything like that, just some band music is fine. Also, think the names of the notes while you play them, don't think the fingering.
