"This one day of bad eating isn't going to kill me", which leads to another day, and another, and another...

I'm depressed and eating this candy bar will make me feel better. [of course, in the end, it only makes me feel worse.]

I've had some bad news - eating this whole tub of ice cream will make it better.

I'm starting a diet tomorrow, so I'd better eat all the junk food in the house, and/or go out and get a takeaway as I won't be having one for a while.

First excuse happens in the shop: "I'm buying these (chocolates, cheese puffs) as a standby for spontaneous guests. I'm not going to eat them this time."
Second excuse happens later that same evening: "Well, I have enough calories left to eat one serving of that guest food, so why not?"

What actually happens? I eat all 7 or 8 servings that night, or at best by the end of the next day.

That "last supper" mentality is a real diet killer. Instead of saying "I won't get to eat this junk food for a while because I'm starting a diet" say "I'm going to start eating healthy and eat these junk foods in moderation or as special treats"

i've got to get these _______ (cookies, chips, ice cream, etc) out of the house, but i hate to waste it. i'll just eat it instead. then it won't be there to tempt me anymore.

I'll do my workout later-when I get home from work; I want to sleep in. Then after work, I just have this one more thing to do before I work out. then after that "one more thing," it's too late, I won't sleep if I work out now.

I need sleep to function at work the next day - my workout can't be allowed to interfere with making a living.

I'm glad I could inspire, you, 2:47 poster! Hopefully it'll do the same for me in about an hour!

I'm not a bad person, I deserve to treat myself nicely! If I want to have a slice of cake or take a break from the gym, I should allow myself to do it.

I'm tired. I just want to eat what I want to eat and relax.
