Sabotaging Thought: It’s okay to eat extra because I’m at a restaurant.

Response: If my goal is to lose weight and keep it off, I can’t eat extra every time I eat out. How many times per week (or month) do I eat out? What about eating extra on weekends, holidays, special occasions, birthdays, etc.? The opportunities to eat extra are endless, so I need to figure out in advance when and where it’s reasonable to do so – it can’t just be a given.
