@sunshine: I don't think I could ever do intuitive eating, it reminds me too much of when I would eat 1600 calories for breakfast and then try to starve myself for the rest of the day, that was horrible and usually ended in a binge. Have your ever tried asking your family to back off with weight comments because they're stressing you out? I'm sure you have your reasons either way.
Incidentally, my dad is inviting a bunch of people over here tomorrow for a greasy southern style open pot all day dinner thing. I hate these things and will do my best to be out of the house all day. I actually don't really like my dad's cooking, besides being unhealthy, it's overcooked and bland, with fat, salt and pork being the only discernible seasoning. I won't have a problem overeating that stuff, but...someone will bring a cake, maybe homemade, maybe store bought, it doesn't matter there will be a cake in the house and it'll be calling my name all night. There are already packaged cookies and mini candy bars here the night before which I can resist, but an already sliced cake? It's not fair. I don't know if I should allot myself a slice now or just try to avoid it, I figure if I can stay out of the house until about 8 and then go to bed around 11 I should be alright and just hope there won't be any left in the morning.
I turned my computer back on just to type this as I've been doing well since the 2nd (either hitting goal or still eating reasonably when I go over my goal, I don't seem to be losing as fast as I had hoped but eating orderly is priority #1 and I have lost over the course of the week), hopefully it helps.
EDIT: Overate a bit and now I'm done
. Drinking some seltzer before going to the gym.
EDIT:2 Well, I went to the gym but then I came home and ate half a pie (In my defense, I didn't know it was here before I left!) and a ton of cheap ice cream (you know, the kind that comes in tubs), and some yogurt, and some raisins, and a cookie. Oh well, could be much worse given my history; G'night, all.
