This reflects a pet peeve of mine and the first time I came across it, I cried.
Yes, so many times in the past I had rewarded myself with food. And a couple years ago it just clicked - an epiphany - why was I doing that?
The realization sunk in that it had to be a lifestyle change, not a diet. I was going to have eat good fuel (food) in order to power through the rest of my life, start right away, and never detour from it again. It was all in my control and I could do it if I wanted to.
The first step was doing it and then putting one foot in front of the other and continuing. And if I stumbled or fell, I had to pick myself up, brush myself off, and continue on my way. No excuses. No whining.
Do I have treats? Heck yea I do! But they are treats... an occasional indulgence that I have incorporated into my daily caloric intake - just the way I need to do it to succeed.
