My Journey

Hoping 2013 is better than the previous year. Very lofty goal of finally getting myself to my goal weight. Trying to go about doing this by changing my relationship with food and eating...and by extension, myself, I suppose. Being a person who is always good at getting going but terrible at finishing things...I imagine the hardest part won't be implementing my plan, but maintaining it a few months from now when my interest and attention start to wain. Mental preparation for that is key. :)

Thanks for your post regarding my lack of hunger. I didn't want to be ungrateful there, but I do believe that all the fear around so-called starvation mode is unwarranted, especially for someone who eats regularly 360 days of the year at least! Many thin people routinely go long periods without eating with no dire effects.

I have also read the information on intermittent fasting and even considered it, though every time I tried it on purpose, my binge urges reared up. I've decided I'm going to try not to resist these fasts when they come on their own like this one did. It doesn't happen often, so I doubt they can be harmful in the long run. It was the mental issue I was more concerned with, anyway. I just wish the desire to eat would go away for that time, too! I'm not plagued by the desire to eat when I'm not hungry on other days. Maybe this is all part of the process of getting free of the bonds of food. Statistically, it takes between 2 and 5 years for the likelihood of relapse to drop drastically. I'm 2 years in, so I'm feeling good, but I'm not assuming it's done deal.

Totally! If I eat that often, I just eat more calories overall. Plus it feels weird to never be hungry, even a little.

Ew,ew, ew! I looked up rennet and...ick. Here is a list of rennet-free cheese. Luckily, several are ones I eat regularly. Also, thanks so much for your comments. I am so enjoying everyone's thoughts on this topic. http://cheese.joyousliving.com/CheeseListT
