Disapointed with myself
Number one don't be disappointed in yourself. Why would you be disappointed in yourself? You're a beautiful human being. Human beings like food, some of us more than others. Ugh. My advice is to stop thinking about what to eat. The more I think about food, the more I eat food. Get a little outdoor exercise. Walking biking jogging chasing the kids around. Then think about that. Then you'll want to more of it. The fresh air and exercise regulates my appetite - makes me crave sweets less and nutritious foods more.
