U need to become accountable for your actions. Understand how many calories your consuming and how long it will take to burn off that 1000kcal pizza, which will easy be two hours of hard work. Realising the effort you need to put in to burn off that pizza to accomplish weight loss will empower you keep you focused

I know what you mean, I go through stages like that, too. I think it's good to remember in those moments not to be to hard on yourself. So you had a piece of pizza, don't let it ruin the rest of your day/week/month/life. It is what it is, just remember to make a better choice next time you eat. And try to think of food as fuel for your body rather than a form of enjoyment or a part of an experience. Itmight help to give yourself a cheat day every once in a while, eat good all week...

Resist resist resist, that's what I suggest. Try not to think of unhealthy food. If you can't, then think of how bad it's for you and how are you eventually end up looking. For the working out part, try to make a schedule(and set goals) which has a proper workout time. Just think of it as your duty and mentally prepare yourself before you start.

I've had times like that, where i get on a sugar and carb kick. It's like an addiction that once I have some junk, the urge to keep eating more is so powerful. If you can just make it through a day of eating healthy it gets so much easier. Don't worry so much about finishing a workout, that's tied into your diet. Your main focus should be to cut all sugar and most carbs for a day. Then eating healthy gets a lot easier after that and the workouts will finish themselves once you're back on track. Eat brown rice, fruit, chopped fresh veggies, make some amazing fresh green salad, even a simple one with two ingredients will help. (watch out for high fructose corn syrup dressings!) Wrap some tuna salad and hard boiled egg slices in red or romaine lettuce leaves for a simple wrap. You can do it it gets easier just fight it for a day, then maintain.
