Protocol chatter


Hi Brooke
I have been with you since January and I still have constant chatter around protocol and food and eating. I am working on getting through it. I am not overweight, nor do i overeat, but i feel that i am wasting my time with this chatter. I could be thinking about much more important stuff. I realise in quitting drinking, how much more time I have in my life to live deliberately. I am trying to get to the bottom of this one.
Sugar and flour are not in my protocol – I don’t always follow my protocol. I hear the thoughts ‘I’m not overweight, I can have some of that, It won’t hurt, I don’t need to be so extreme, There’s no net negative consequence, I’m snacking on raw vegetables – surely that’s ok’
Do I just need to make a decision and stick to it? I find that i’m really resistant to sticking to the protocol and i can’t work out why. These are my models
unintentional
c protocol
t i might want to change my mind
f resistance
a don’t stick to protocol, come up with exceptions
r constantly change the protocol

intentional
c protocol
t i can get to the bottom of this resistance to sticking to a protocol
f determined
a i keep trying
r i work it out

Can you please point me in the right direction in regards to materials or any advice here? Many thanks
