So I messed up AGAIN. I ate all the good fruit in a fruit salad my mom bought. Now she's mad at me and I feel like crap for it. Like why the heck did I do that!?! Why am I that selfish!? Why don't i think about others wants and needs... I'm a mean person... I know it doesn't seem like a big deal... but it is to me... I guess I did it to hide the fact that I felt bad that day... and I haven't really been eating good food lately. Just junk food. So when I saw the fruit my body was like "eat all of it!" Does anyone have a way to prevent or deter the impulsive eating habits?

One way to take the impulsivity out your eating is to pre-plan your meals and snacks. It takes some effort but if you know what and when you're going to eat and then follow your plan, you're less likely to spontaneously eat food. It takes some effort though. Since you're apparently still living in your parent's home, you may have to coordinate your plan with your mother. You also have to make sure the ingredients for your meals and snacks are in your house so you're not forced to eat unplanned foods. Try to assure that you eat either a meal or a snack every three hours to assure hunger doesn't overwhelm your plan. Good luck to you. Hugs!
