Self control is not only denying yourself something that you shouldn’t have. It’s also doing the things you should do to get the results you want. It’s doing them regularly, consistently, and with purpose.
To eat healthy, you must have a plan about what you can do, and how you will do it. When all you focus on is denial, you will fail.
As in all things, understanding the parts will make sense of the whole.
Learn all you can about yourself. Know what makes you stronger. Know what makes you weaker. Self control is doing more than it is denying.
