Set up some boundaries for yourself. “I won’t eat sweets on Wednesdays” Then watch as you’ll be tempted to eat so many sweets on Wednesdays. Are you the type of person who will stick to their guns? Or are you the type that makes compromises? If your willpower is defeated by a cookie, then you are weak. Do not make compromises for a cookie. If you do, you are weakening your willpower. There will come a time where you are faced with the decision to make a compromise for something far more dangerous. “Should I sleep with her anyways?” “I mean, it’s just a couple hundred more dollars.” Don’t risk it.
