It's a good reminder for us. IE is always under such scrutiny here even though almost every real person in my life is a natural born intuitive eater. It obviously works, there is no explanation why the people in my life eat whatever try want, don't restrict/deprive, eat a variety of foods and don't have weight problems. I always try to remember that, not to listen to dieters.

Carol, I'm sure the scale will move again. Go easy on yourself, you have a lot to contend with.

"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
