Carol, that's so weird. I couldn't eat at all after dinner last night either. (Although, I had sloppy joes and a sort of shake thing I made for dinner, and it might have just been way too much. But still, I have usually been able to manage to eat something later on).

Carol--I will definitely take a look at that article.

Amy--Any news on the job?

Things continue to be going well. I'm eating less and I am still binge free. Today is day 37.

Congratulations, Shay, on 37 days binge free. What an accomplishment! I was just reading in Bob Schwartz's book that some IE eaters start to starve themselves because of the high it brings. He says that will back fire and you will binge. I took that to heart.

No, not yet. The very earliest I would hear is today, so I'm waiting impatiently. I did have a weird dream last night about not getting it and trying to figure out ways I might still be in the running. Then at lunch today (not dreaming), I saw someone from the interview and she smiled at me, so I guess that's better than her avoiding eye contact. I just hate the long, drawn-out process here at the university.

Thanks Carol!

Amy--I definitely think the eye contact and smile is a good sign. We have to interview in pairs where I work. I always tell my colleagues if I barely want to look at the person or make eye contact it means I don't think they are what we are looking for.

An interesting description of IE.

Intuitive Eating: What is it? How does it work?
--------------------------------------------------

• It varies from person to person. Because our tastes, bodies, activities, emotions,
and spiritual paths are different, what our bodies require in terms of
nourishment also differs.

• It is cyclical. Weekly, monthly, and annual cycles, even life
cycles, change our body's need for, and responses to, food.

• It is imperfect. Intuitive eating does not mean we'll always choose
absolutely "healthy" or "pristine" foods. We won't always feel as if
we've had a "perfect" balance.

• It is rhythmic. We feel pleasantly full (but not stuffed) after a
meal and pleasantly hungry (but not starving) before the next.

• It includes a wide variety of foods. Cereals and grains, fruits
and vegetables, dairy products, meats, beans, nuts, and even fats
play a role in normal, intuitive eating. Again, the exact balance and
variety of foods must be individualized.

• It is free of obsession. It acknowledges that our compulsions are
due to biochemical or emotional reasons and any over- or under-eating
is a clue to begin looking further as an opportunity for learning.

• It is nourishing to the body and spirit.

• It feels good. Good food in the right amounts and at the right
times excites the senses. It provides tactile and taste sensations
as we eat, and a pleasurable "full" feeling afterward. When we finish
a meal, we feel comforted and renewed - physically, emotionally, and
even spiritually.

• It is an essential component of self care. What better way to
nurture ourselves than with the foods we need and enjoy in the
amounts we require?

Carol--Thanks so much for the links. I really enjoy reading them. I am also googling "intuitive eating" and looking for resources and I found this:

http://health.utah.gov/diabetes/pdf/...ut_april08.pdf

Granted it is a powerpoint presentation so you don't know what Dr. Hawks said along with it but he presents some interesting information in his slides.

I've read some of Steve Hawks articles and I thought he was supposed to write a book about his own experience but I've never seen it. I know that getting a book published is kind of difficult from talking to a personal friend who had one book published but was having a hard time getting the second one published. He lost 50lb.

Does anyone have the problem of being hungry, ingnoring it for awhile
and then being ravenous with resulting overeating? It seems like such
a fine line and if your not near food you can go overboard when you do
get near it. Is it possible to "time" your hunger so that doesn't
happen?

Hey, I'm glad you bumped this up! I'm still counting calories (trying to stop eventually) and was given an IE book from my therapist.

I've done well today and I'm really listening to my body.

How are you doing today?
