"Procrastination is a way for us to be satisfied with second-rate results; we can always tell ourselves we'd have done a better job if only we had more time..If you're good at rationalizing, you can keep yourself feeling rather satisfied this way, but it's a cheap happy. You're whittling your expectations of yourself down lower and lower" Richard O'Conner PhD.
Procrastination has lost me a lot of my life. My next step is to change other parts of my life the way I have with eating / exercise.

"It is impossible to live pleasurably without living wisely, well, and justly, and it is impossible to live wisely, well, and justly without living pleasurably" Epicurus
I really like that quote. It describes me so well, that is what always happens to me. I don't lose control, rather I rationalize to myself that it really doesn't matter. That is how I always get off plan.
