I do not believe that self control is something that someone naturally has. It is a skill, like writing or playing an instrument, that improves with practice. We set out small goals to work toward and use those small victories to accomplish larger ones. For example, eating more fruits and vegetables. I can try to eat 9 a day. This will naturally remove other things from my menu that are not as healthy for me.
Keeping track of my food was a huge thing for me. It put everything I was eating in front of my eyes and forced me to be honest with myself. Only then could I start to make major changes.
Good luck. We are all here to support you.
