yeah thanks guys. I see what you mean with the smoking thing. Draco, thats a great idea about using your psychology to turn it around in your head. that's what I've been doing with sugary foods. Telling myself "ew, that's too sweet" (when really i could eat sugar straight), or telling myself I donlt like those foods.
My hubby will tell me that he's overweight bacause he just likes the taste of the food. Or because man is genetically programmed to eat alot when food is available!! Or because he doesn't have time to train enough. When really he needs to stop making excuses and just stop putting the food in his mouth, same as all of us. I keep telling myself "it's not rocket science", when things get complicated in my head.
Funny thing is, I'm not even finding this hard. But getting up to a large empty packet of chips, 2 ice blocks, and a container of juice makes me feel sad for him. Especially as I went to bed at 11pm, so he ate all that after then. He is really depressed, and it's tough to stay focused, but I will.
Everytime I think about eating a whole bag of m&m's or something, I think about the dissapointed feeling i would feel afterwards, and know that it's sooo not worth it.
