Default The lies I tell myself. How about you?

I've come to the realization that I lie to myself a lot. I think the biggest one is "It's okay to eat this now because I will eat less later".

How about you? Do you tell yourself any lies that are hindering your efforts?

I can add to this one. I have told myself a lot of lies over time, but the one that comes to play most often is "I'll only have this one small bite."

Pipsicle, I tell myself the same thing much too often. And its usually at the end of the say when I should be ending my eating, anyway.

Oh Yeah, somehow I have fooled myself into thinking I'm not as big as I am. It only hits home when I see a picture of myself.

This. I look at myself in the mirror and I think I look ok-ish. Then I see pictures of myself and I'm disgusted, the woman there REALLY looks like she carries my weight!

Here's another "I am working really hard". In reality, I may have made a couple of small changes at the most. I do think about it a lot and what I should be doing. For whatever reason, that feels like hard work to me.

Lie to yourself can't make you fit. If you lie to yourself regarding your diet then you are doing wrong.

I am my own worst enemy in many ways, but especially when it comes to food. "It won't matter this one time." "I'll start again tomorrow." "It's not that much." "I'll just skip lunch tomorrow." Blah, blah, blah, on and on.

I lie to myslef that I am ok with this and that is "not so bad" and that does not influence my health!

And that I am ok with that I am allways "a friende" and not looking good enough to be "a partner".

I lie to myself that someone will love me for me...i lie myself a lot.

Only when we confront our lies we can change things! Maybe this is a first step!
