Think about a food you love but rarely "permit" yourself to have. Get excited about enjoying ONE serving of it without any guilt or shame! Portion out a reasonable serving, sit down somewhere away from social media and work, and really enjoy it.Then, move on! Don't let that spiral you into self-judgment, or into eating more food that will make you feel poorly later. Way to go!
