I know what you mean about not wanting to be obsessed with weight issues when eating. Given Dr. Gould's general attitude about emotional eating, I don't imagine he would advocate being rigid about it. When I use this one, I think, "I've always been curious to know what my body would weigh if I were eating to comfortable fullness consistently. I'd like to give myself that experience by eating that way now. It's the only way to find out." Then it doesn't seem to be so much about being skinny or depriving myself, but on satisfying a long-held desire, which can help counterbalance the short-term desire. It doesn't always work, but I figure it helps to build up a store of these experiences, and eventually they'll start to tip the "scales."

This item can be tricky. I DON'T want to diet- that is yucky denial stuff. However, I don't want to eat EVERYTHING. I think it is easier to 'keep your health in mind'. When we set goals to become healthier- eat 5 fruits and veg, exercise and a specific level every day or x times a week our healthy weight or weight loss is the bonus result. When I think that if I eat cake all day I will get heavier it becomes a negative challenge. If I realize that if I eat cake all day my stomach will hurt, I will get a headache and become cranky (or my kids may say crankier emoticon ) I can definitely see reason in making a healthier food choice.
