Yes, if you are about to mindlessly snack, take it out of your mind and make the announcement: "I am now eating this entire bowl of leftover pasta because I'm bored, not hungry, even though I know it will go right to my butt." If not working out is your issue. Say "I am not going to work out right now because I would prefer be lazy and not address the fact that I need to get healthy. I am making the decision to prolong and even worsen my health and make my weight loss journey take even longer." Chances are your statement will make you think better of it.
