On the all-or-nothing thinking ... I think every single person with chronic weight problems has this mindset. It is the flip side of compulsive overeating for some of us, and it is damned difficult to overcome because it is so ingrained. Yet I believe it is the single greatest thing that causes us to (a) become overweight in the first place and (b) continue to fail to lose the weight.

I highly recommend the book The Thin Books to help deal with this issue. It opened my eyes to how my attitudes were different from people who did not have weight problems, and how I could start to turn them around.
