This is something I need to work on as a whole. I need to recognize my impulses, label them as impulses and the hard part is to not give into them. When I have an impulse the draw is incredibly strong, it's time to start exercising some self control. I do have a few ideas. For eating, allow myself two treats a week, and these are going to be planned in advance. It's not Thanksgiving DAY or your birthDAY or Christmas DAY that causes trouble, it's all the other days in-between. I need to shake off this instant gratification mindset, become more selfless, more humble........ Maybe I should think up some service projects to do, start thinking about others, become less of a consumer and draw closer to God. For the longest time I figured that when my weight loss journey was done, I could work on other things like spirituality. But now I realize that I can't continue on in my weight loss journey until I start taking care of my spirituality. I am too obsessed with food, thinking about weight loss and food and exercise all the time. I don't want to be obsessed with it. If I can change my focus, stop thinking about it so much then I will have made a significant step towards living a life free from my crippling addiction to food.
