Sabotaging Thought: I want to watch TV and TV is so much better when you eat while watching.

Response: TV IS so much better when I’m eating, but every part of life is so much better when I’m thinner, healthier, and feeling good about myself. Likely I want to eat while I watch TV because TV alone is not quite entertaining enough – but food is not the only enhancement to TV! I can try other things while I watch TV that have no negative consequences, like playing a game on my phone, knitting, coloring, painting my nails, putting pictures in an album, doing a puzzle, etc.
