Yesterday I went to the break room and had 3 pieces of lemon cake which was not in my plan. I did not feel guilty or bad or beat myself for doing that which is good. I spoke to myself and went back and investigated what I was thinking at that time and it was just that I wanted to eat those coz the cake is tasty.
Before , I would feel bad and reprimand myself for doing such things and I thought it would get me back on the plan.
So, now that I didn’t scold myself this time, I have the thought that I am letting myself chose to eat off plan and be okay with that which will give my brain a permission to eat foods off plan. It’s like talking to my child “ it’s okay, don’t eat it next time , okay?” And they still do it.
How do I think about these situations going forward ?
