It took a lot not to down it all, but the thought of being able to have it when I was hungry again made it easier to stop. Baby steps right?
    I think about this a lot too. I've been practicing Robin's hunger scale method very closely but sometimes I'll make a smoothie that's got too much water and it's probably 20+ ounces. I get full but I've started sticking it in the fridge/freezer for later. baby steps!!

    I wonder though, in real life situations, when people ask you to taste something to try something (or say it's your wedding cakes you're having to sample) or it's a group thing where it'd be rude not to taste with the group, how do you say no politely? How do you take a bite or two if you ARE NOT hungry and justify it? Is this where you'd then have to forgive and forget (like Robin says not to carry guilt around) and move on?

    I've done so well with only eating when I'm hungry that now I fear any instance that will make me "cheat" on this protocol and eat when I'm not hungry. What do you all think?

    What I have found recently is that people really don't care if you eat or not. I was at a social function with fairly close friends, about 12 of us, and I didn't eat or drink, and I normally definitenly do at these monthly functions. Not only did no one seem to care, no one even asksed me why I was not eating or drinking the wine.

    Years ago, there was one gal who never ate and drank at these funtions saying she had already eaten dinner. It bugged me because I would eat dinner and STILL eat more snack food and drink at the events. That was my issue, not hers. She was not being rude to me, you know? And guess what? She was thin.

    So, my feeing is, it's not rude to pass up food and the only person who might care is someone who wished they had your self awareness.

    You know what I think it is by and large about having a healthy relationship with both our bodies and food...that's where I am trying to get to at least!

    Good points Kim!

    KitCat, I've thought about this too, specifically when I taste while cooking. I think when I'm tasting for flavor it's different than emotional eating. I want to make good food for me and my family. I don't think it's healthy for us to get legalistic about eating. Otherwise that's just another false sense of security we're buying into and that's not healthy. I had a lot of "rules" during my bulimic years. As for social functions, if I'm asked why I'm not eating, I just say I have food allergies and can't eat what's being served. Kim's right though, people usually don't focus on whose not eating.

    Funny story ... my dad NEVER ate unless he was hungry. We'd offer him yummy things and he'd say "Its not time. I'll eat it later " If you kept on asking him, he'd just keep saying that! My mom on the other hand, was a BIG emotional eater, who was always dieting ... I don't think she ever weighed more than 125 lbs in her life.

    MARV: have you ever heard about the mother daughter fat trap? As women we attach emotional value to nearly everything in life. The book states that we pass this learned behavior onto our daughters as well creating a perpetual cycle of obesity.

    Men don't do this as a general rule. Men typically gain weight because of us. I mean we as women teach them as boys how to eat and as wives we are generally responsible for deciding what they eat and how it's fixed...just my thoughts. Men gain primarily due to becoming more sedentary, and if single they don't usually make wise food choices (again opinion based on observations I have made in my life so far). My husband is a prime example. Since I started nursing school and cooking less I have noticed that hubs will go for fast food, frozen food, processed food before he will cook something healthy! He was brought up in a convenience food household. Mom was a night shift nurse leaving him and did to eat the quick and easy foods prepared. Left to his own devises he always reverts to that. Me on the other hand I grew up on baked and broiled with lots of veggies...so that is my staple. I do have an emotional eating problem...or I used to. I now am the opposite. I can't eat at all when stressed. However I love chocolate, that is my weakness, my Achilles heel!!!

    Hi Ladies,

    I am on Day 19 of VLCD and down 15 lbs with cheats here and there. I've been watching Robin's Video's and can really relate. Today, I honestly ate when I was hungry and I feel good. I plan to download her book today. I'm glad I found this thread!

    Ha, how do I respond without making this post too long? I haven't read that book but it sounds very interesting. My eating issues definitely began in the home. We ate very healthy and my entire family is thin, but as the youngest of 7 kids I had a lot of 1:1 time with my mom, so I had a different relationship with her. I remember being 14 and we dieted and took diet pills together. I only weighed 115 lbs, but I was bigger than my two sisters. My mom & I were partners in the "losing the last 10 lbs club." My father just made things worse. To this day he snickers and makes negative comments when he sees a fat woman. He'd even say things to my mom when she overate, or laugh when she'd eat "diet" food. Always joking, playful, ha ha, but I got the message loud & clear. Eating is bad and being fat is even worse. So yeah, it's been a long road to overcome emotional eating, but I've come a long way in the last 10 years.

    MARV: good point! My mothers ex husband had a HUGE part in my eating issues. He abused me the entire time he was in my life but he would also make snide remarks about how much I ate...he had a horrible impact on my emotional eating and self worth. He was the reason that I equated my physical appearance with worth. Our Enviromental as children shapes and molds us beyond belief!

    Sorry you had to go through that. I'm glad you've been able to move past it, unlike him who is probably still just a miserable soul.
