Sabotage: It’s the fourth of July, I should be able to eat whatever I want.

Response: I can eat whatever I want – if I’m okay with getting off track, reinforcing bad habits, jeopardizing weight loss, possibly feeling uncomfortably full, etc.  Remember that the same things that ultimately make me feel good on a normal day (eating reasonable portions and staying in control) are the same things that will make me feel good on a holiday.
