I need a new answer.

I’ve been struggling for months with turning down impulse foods, especially sugar, and not eating when I’m not hungry.

I’m doing thought downloads, I’m getting coaching, I’m making 24 hour plans and evaluating them, I’m trying to feel my feelings, I listen to the podcast, I’m practicing new thoughts and ladder thoughts, I’m doing worksheets, I spend an hour or two every day coaching myself, I’m doing ALL THE THINGS.

But I still eat the damn ice cream.

I know in advance that I don’t want the ice cream (or whatever it is). I know it’s not in line with what I want in life. I know it’s not on my plan. I know that I probably will want it, and that’s okay. I know that when I want it, I won’t die and I’m capable of just sitting with some discomfort.

But I just don’t.

I feel like I know plenty. I’ve followed the podcast for years and spent awhile in scholars. I *know* what I need to do and I *know* that it’s okay if I don’t feel like it and that those feelings are okay.

But I still just don’t do the thing (whatever that thing is).

I’m trying so hard not to give up. Please help.
