So I wasn't really prepared to incorporate every aspect of intuitive eating right away, and I think most people aren't. Each person has to sort of "ease" into it.

So surfergirl, I do agree with veggiedaze, although I also understand and sympathize with your plight. You have to do things on your own time and your own schedule, but be aware that in order to really make peace with food (and ultimately that's what this is all about) you need to let go of the "tools of control." Calorie counting and the scale definitely fall into that category.
