If you think, “it’s not fair that I have to work on losing weight and can’t eat whatever I want on weekends,” remind yourself that while it’s true this is unfair, focusing on the unfairness will just make you feel worse. Working on accepting it and doing what you need to do will make you feel better – and make losing weight easier. Nothing will take away the unfairness, but in one case you can feel much worse about it and in the other, you can feel much better. Which would you rather?
