When things are going well on a diet, I feel an urge to screw it up. What is wrong with me?

This is very common. There is probably a biochemical and nutritional deficiency that may be partially to blame. We will cover that over our emotional eating teleseminar series.
Could be an emotional component too.
You need to take some deep breaths, get centered and make a list of all the reasons why you don't want to lose weight and make lifestyle changes.
Some of the reasons may be:
1. I don't want to give up my favorite comfort foods.
2. I don't want to be left with a void when I stop emotional eating.
3. I'm afraid I will fail.
4. I'm afraid to be thin.
5. I don't think I'm capable of doing this.
6. I'm addicted to my junk foods.
7. I can't face my emotional pain.

Stick with our program and you'll kick this habit.
