I am struggling with emotional eating and mental mindset. I understand that I am in control of the way I react to the world, and right now I am not choosing to put my health first. I am choosing to wallow in what is happening that I don't like and that I cannot change. I am disgusted with myself yet still make negative choices and then beat myself up for making them.

Why is the part of the mind that can make you feel so badly about yourself so powerful and the choice to love yourself so difficult?
