I realized yesterday that I treat my nails like my weight.
Everytime my nails start to grow out, I bite them off! I had already nibbled down two before I realized what I was doing so of course, I did the rest so they all would be 'even'.
It's basically the same thing with my weight. Every time I make some progress, whether it's actually losing weight, starting back on a exercise routine, getting to bed on time, etc., I always sabotage myself. I stuff my face for no reason, get on the computer when I told myself I was going straight to bed, or doing something else to screw myself over. And I never realize it till it's done with.
Realizations are good things. Recognizing destructive behavior is the first step to changing destructive behavior. So make yourself a plan of action to combat it (them) and banish those behaviors from your life - forever. Work around them, set up barriers, distract yourself, replace bad habits with good - vow to do whatever it takes - and do it!
