Spoke to my therapist today about my resolutions (of COURSE I have a therapist, I'm from New York, aren't I?!). I told her I'm not eating all that much because I am trying to eat when hungry and I never seem to feel hungry. I also don't eat that much when I do eat, because I'm having trouble gauging when I'm full. She said that my lack of eating was just the flipside of eating for every reason except hunger. She also felt it was a control issue. She said it will be hard to get in touch with my actual hunger after so many decades of not listening to my body. I think it will be a long journey but worth it.
Got Geneen Roth's Breaking Free of Emotional Eating from Amazon and started reading it. So far so good.
