I know what I should be eating, so why don't I eat it?

I know I'm not alone in this, but what's it all about? I'm an intelligent woman, my dc's eat a great balanced diet so why can't I do the same? I like fruit and veg, I like 'healthy' foods, but I also like chocolate, pies and wine. I can't seem to get a balance, last week when dh was away I realised I hadn't eaten any fresh fruit or veg in days!

Has anyone overcome this?

I know how you feel. Sometimes I have to force myself to eat an apple. It's pathetic.

CatMandu, I'm the same. I've overcome this once with anti-depressants and going to over-eaters anon, and again by doing slimming world but recently have fallen off the wagonsad

I know exactly how you feel. I have read so many books on the subject and am now doing weight watchers for the millionth time. I have no idea why I find it so hard. Last week I was looking at gastric band websites... and when I think about being a frumpy mummy wearing slacks and jumpers because that's the only thing that'll fit I want to cry. So...

I have stuck a nasty photo of me in my underwear inside my cupboard door, one in the fridge and one in my wallet so when I feel tempted I know what it is that I'm sentencing myself to.

DH is a bit overweight so he has a pic of himself up too. They are horrid pics and it really does help!
