Don’t let compulsive eating add to your stress

When you get caught up in a murky haze of a compulsive urge to eat destructively, no one has to tell you how easy it is to allow yourself to cave into impulsive desire. If you exercise, you know this feeling well—it’s how your mind tries to sabotage you from doing those extra five minutes on the treadmill or the last few ab crunches. If you’ve pushed through these moments of ambivalence, you know how important it is not to capitulate (listen) to the voice in you that wants to quit. For now, simply realize that no matter what you feel or think, until you take that first bite, you still have a chance to steel yourself and recognize one simple truth: It ain’t over until it’s over.’
