I can’t resist [those cookies] – they look too good. Response: It’s true that it’s hard to resist but it’s not true that I can’t. There is a difference between things that are impossible and things that are hard. Telling myself I ‘can’t’ resist is really just an excuse to give in. I’ve resisted plenty of cravings before, and I know I can now, too. Besides, when I give in I feel mad at myself and when I resist I feel great.
