If you find yourself staring at a piece of food you can't seem to say no to stop for a brief moment and explain to yourself why you should have the food or better still why you should NOT have the food. Do it out loud if you're alone or explain it to a friend if you're in company.
Don't mindlessly eat, force yourself to be accountable. Make yourself rationalize your choices.

Just STOP the thought train that creates "reasons" (excuses) and debates whether or not you should exercise or eat right. When I hear myself debating and rationalizing, I call myself out on it. "Heyyyyyy.........wait a minute........" Once I realize where that train is headed, I jump right off and get back on the right track. Listen to yourself and quit thinking! ;-)
