I struggle with food.
I know what I am supposed to eat. I know what I shouldn’t eat.
I don’t eat what I should eat and I eat too much of what I shouldn’t eat.
I think daily about the bad foods I shouldn’t eat and that I shouldn’t eat them and that I am not going to eat them today. Sometimes I am successful at not eating those foods. Most of the time I buy and eat them anyway as though I don’t even remember thinking earlier that day that I shouldn’t eat those foods. I don’t know how to fix this problem. Is is a sugar addiction? Is it lack of will power? Is it some deep seeded psychological reason? I don’t know. I just know I have a HELL of a time with food.
I am going to try the following: every time I am about to put something in my mouth or buy something to eat, I am going to stop and ask myself if I really want it. I am going to ask myself if I will regret eating this thing. If I forget and remember halfway through, I will stop and ask.
