So remember how I talked about the woman who came to my job to talk about eating disorders/food addictions? I got to spend a little time with her after the inservice and talk. Part of what she talked about was how a food addict (me) obsesses about food/body/calories/etc. One of the things she does is runs a program fod eating disorders. Anyway, we talked about how I weigh myself daily, keep track of my daily intake and my calories. It got me thinking about it all. I do think I am going to stop weighing myself daily and move to only doing it once a week. I am considering not planning out meals the way I have. I have found myself really thinking a lot about what I was going to eat and basically biding my time until I get to eat next. I really would like to hear what you think about my not planning out my meals, tracking my calories from the perspective of a weight loss patient. I think I need to take this into consideration also. I am thinking what I would do is to write down what I have eaten so if my weight started going up I could look at my food journal and see whats what. Anyway, I am interested in what you think. Thanks.
