Future self

I’ve been having trouble accessing my future self, and connecting it to who I am now. When it comes to losing weight, I sometimes pause and ask what my future self would do… And I just realized that I’ve been thinking that my future self would somehow be this magical unicorn who could eat anything she wants and not worry about weight. Like she apparently is so fabulous that food and drinks and cupcakes don’t make her fat, despite indulging all the time. I think this awareness is good, but I don’t know what to make of it. Clearly my future self is entitled, haha. 😉 How can I tap into a future self that would serve me? What can I ask myself and how can I think about who I want to be in a way that serves in the moment?
