Sabotaging Thought: I want to eat more dessert, if I don’t I’ll be depriving myself.

Response: It’s true that by not eating more, I’m depriving myself of extra dessert. But when I don’t deprive myself of extra dessert, I DO then deprive myself of losing weight and reaching my important goals. It’s not that I can't have any dessert, but when I have extra I then lose out on other (more important) things.
