I don’t eat without my own permission

When I give myself permission, I am not defeated. I simply lost the round.

Sometimes my mind won’t listen to anything I might say to convince it that overeating is a bad idea, ad the best thing I can do is to give myself permission to eat something I suspect I’m going to eat anyway. In doing so, I acknowledge the struggle and deepen my understanding of the challenge I face controlling those urges. I also learn something about my adversary and can better prepare for the next confrontation. Unconscious surrender, on the other hand, can leave me feeling helpless, confused, or defeated.
