Susan, I sometimes think about eating as "what would a 'normal' i.e thin person do. I notice that my thin friends sometimes overeat, they indulge for a meal or a vacation. The difference seems to be that they don't flog themselves afterwards, or see this as permanent, only as a vacation and one that needs to end afterwards.

I sometimes wish that magically my overeating will disappear. I am coming to believe that the goal is not never to overeat or indulge, it is to manage that eating so that afterwards I revert to plan. Perhaps even more important is that I don't follow up the wrong eating by punishing myself by escalating my eating and really reverting to bad patterns.

It was a holiday weekend with your parents. You ate wrong. Now its over and you are reminded how much better you feel when you eat differently.

You can do this!
