If you feel like "eating healthy" is a big sacrifice and you can't wait until this torture is over; then you'll never be able to achieve to reach your goal, and will find yourself binging on sugar loaded food the first chance you get..

Make sure eating your comfort food occasionally, not every week.. It must be kind a reward for behaving good for whole time.
