Don't wait for "tomorrow" to get back on track when you slip.

When you feel hungry and you've just eaten, take a five minute break and just breathe. Have a glass of water or tea. Reassess whether you're really hungry after that.

The "hungry ME" who demands treats and food has NO CONTROL over my hands and mouth. It may shout all it wants, but my MIND has control over what I actually pick up and eat. If I can take a few minutes and breathe, and realize that the two are separate, it is much easier to resist her ranting, or to calm her with expectations of healthy on-plan eating later. She doesn't want to starve, and I understand that. She needs to realize that I do indeed understand that, and then she calms down some.
