performance: gaining 0.4 lb a week

I have never been thin but it wasn't until after college that I really started packing on the pounds. I've tried many different diet plans and I have had some success in losing weight but I always gain it back and then some. My feeling is that dieting is only treating the symptom of the root problem. The question I never answered until now is, "Why do I overeat in the first place?" I have been seeing a counselor for about 3 months for an unrelated issue but in that process I discovered what I think will be the key to my sustainable success in becoming a more healthy, happy person. Wish me luck!

Still Megan, huh? I wonder if there is a Megan Hornsby out there wondering why her account is now named your email address. At least today I could access your journal entries.

Have you tried emailing the address?

Plus now I can't seem to get to any of your journals. Sad

I know the feeling. When I was not trying to lose weight, I didn't think about food much, I just ate whatever was on hand. Now that I am actively trying to curb my intake, I have to think about food more from necessity. It's natural and it did subside for me a bit once I got into the groove of my new way of eating. Roll with the punches and congrats for not going over your RDI *and* for logging everything. You are doing the right thing. There is another FS member that journaled on a technique called "tapping" recently that you might find useful as well. Do a search on the FS site for tapping and send me a message if you can't find it, I will see if I can track it down as well.

Rude people
I haven't really been picked on since high school and never for my weight. I am not sure how I would handle it, *especially* after having lost a lot of weight and then to be singled out for being chubby, or some such. I think I would be very incensed by the irony and injustice, hehe.

Ok, time to start again. At least this time it's before I go all the way back to where I started and then some.
