Really sick of the self-sabotage cycle...

@KnitOrMiss - that's something I've been thinking about a lot, WHY I do it and using that as a reminder to NOT do it. I used to think I didn't feel like I deserved it. But I think it's because I feel like no matter what I do, whether I deserve it or not, I'll just fail. I've noticed when it happens as often as it has been it's usually when something else in my life has seriously let me down and I get into this "Trying is pointless" funk. Like being told the reason I didn't get the promotion at work- "You definitely deserve it. Everyone agrees on that. But if we give it to you, you'll be more marketable and could get another job and leave us." And I was expected to take this as a compliment. But trying to tell myself that that is something separate, something I can't control, so there's no reason to use it as an excuse to get off track with something I CAN control. It helped yesterday for sure, and so far it's helping today.

It's been a little difficult because my husband purchased a huge tub of ice cream and told me that he's going to be monitoring how much I eat daily. I think that he thinks this will help me, but what he doesn't realize is that I feel teased. I've told him, but he really doesn't understand. The good thing is that it has helped! And I'm very surprised about that. I don't like it one bit, but it's teaching me to eat slower and enjoy my little scoop of ice cream. Before I would have just not purchased it at all, because I would finish the entire bucket in a couple of days. He says that I need to learn how to control the way that I eat, rather than deprive myself of good things. I believe what he says to be true, but I grew up being able to eat how much food I wanted without anyone saying anything. This is pretty tough, but I'm appreciating it hesitantly. Do you have secrets to enjoy good comfort foods with self-control or do y'all have help like me? Seriously...
