I used to have a magnet I kept at work, stating almost the same words as yours - Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints.
Now, moving on beyond that: I read something this morning that hit me. The book is about sold-out obedience to the Lord, but what I read this morning was something like: "I want to lose weight, but I also really want that piece of chocolate cake." WHAM! Right between the eyes. Her point was, do I REALLY want that immediate, temporal gain, or do I want something eternal? (obedience to the Lord, who has admonished us to take care of our bodies because they are the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit)
Now, that might not be a problem for you, but after hitting me between the eyes, it then stepped on my toes. I'm praying to think about food like that - do I really want that (cake, pizza, cookies, etc) more than I want to lose weight?
So, whatever you need to figure out to help you along, I'm thinking of you and wishing you well.
