How Can I Help Myself?
By being aware of what you eat is part of it. However, just as important is learning good eating habits in place of bad. At first, this seems difficult: breaking an existing habit is always difficult, just because it is a habit. However, by the same token, once the new habit is in place it becomes easier to follow and maintain. Techniques from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and from compassion-focused therapy (CFT) can help you to learn new habits so you not only lose weight but then stay at your new, more healthy weight for the long term.
