Sabotaging Thought: I’m not happy with what I’m eating today so I’m going to stop recording/counting it.

Response: It’s critical for me to keep counting what I eat, even when I’m not happy with it. If I allow myself to stop recording my eating, then I’ll be sending myself the message that I won’t make myself take accountability for my eating and it makes it much more likely I’ll overeat the next time I’m tempted to. Continuing to write down my eating today will prove to myself that I face what I’m doing no matter what, and will make it much more likely I’ll stay on track the next time.
