How lucky to have that experience of 42 days of non-compulsive eating! I know it's hard to get going again, but I feel as if after a few days, my body then starts remembering, at least some of the time, what it was like to not be full and to get hungry a lot of the time and it likes it! It sounds like you discovered again that when we start wanting thinness more than we want healing from the chains of compulsive emotional eating, something is up. Eating in response to our bodies' true needs is the real gift. Keep up with us on any of the the threads that speak to you.

hello all, i was eating just like the shrink yourself advises, i call it intuitive eating. I started back in september and lasted 42 days, felt great and was down 5 pounds.
Then I got mad that it wasn't happening fast enough, and got depressed around Christmas and the anniversary of my Dad's death, then I started pigging out, and the clothes are super tight, i don't really weigh myself, too much of a trigger for me. But, i'm guessing i am up 7lbs.
So..., the lesson learned is - don't give up - don't be so impatient, i could have come so much further had i not got upset and started overeating, how does THAT help??? - intuitive eating works for me, better than any other "plan", then i just go from "good" to "bad"
