Germanflower, thank you so much for your response! It may seem strange but it was so comforting to know that someone else dealt with this enough that they had to go to that extreme! I'm in no danger of being anorexic (enjoy food to much and want to be HEALTHY) but yes, I'm completely there with you that food is a snowball, for me it seems to carry its own momentum. Even if I eat healthily, early in the day, it still seems to start me eating. This is a problem all the time when I'm at the office - I'm so much better when I'm out of the office! Anyway, this does help. I may make a habit of just always leaving for lunch and not having anything else or just lemonade handy in case I get hungry.(that doesn't make me want to eat) Now to get started, I may to another short MC. I really found it helpful and was good at eating well for a while after coming off.
Thanks again, it was really helpful to read about someone else trying to be healthy but deals with this as well. Take care, be well.
