One of our dieters is going through a really hard time in her life. She said that in the past she would have thought, “I’ll just worry about my eating when things calm down.” 

Instead of giving in to this thought, she’s been working really hard at staying in control of her eating because she knows that feeling out of control of her eating will make her feel more out of control in general. She said to us, “Even though it’s difficult, it’s so important that I’m putting in the effort to stay on track so at least, if nothing else, I can feel good about my eating and in control of the one thing I can control. Besides, I’d rather be lower in weight once this is over instead of either the same or higher!”
