I can go days, weeks even months maintaining my healthy eating (I don't like to call it a diet, mostly because I see a diet as a short-term plan and I am trying to make lifelong changes). However, I occasionally start eating and cannot stop myself. Now I am not talking about good food hear either but absolute junk! For example, yesterday my daughters wanted to make peanut butter cookies for a friend of theirs who had been in the hospital. We made a batch and delivered half of them to their friends house. After supper the girls each had two and I allowed myself I. All well and fine except I couldn't stop their. One cookie turned into four or five more, then a pop tart(which I have never really even liked) and then a bowl of ice cream topped with peanut butter. The whole time this went on I was already full from supper but for some reason just couldn't stop. I felt sick to my stomach when I went to bed and still felt overfull when I woke up this morning. I could barely push myself through my morning workout. I should be able to have an occasional dessert or snack without grossly overindulging but I don't seem to be able to do so. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there anyway to change this or should I just tell myself to suck it up and eliminate the sweets/snacks/desserts all together?
