Keep thinking in an almost panic state. Then I want to fast til dinner, then I'll think I need to listen for hunger and stop at full. NoS is sane and when I follow it exactly, I do fine. Slow and steady. I just need to stick it out for a couple weeks to get the habit...

Well, I've been successful maybe 2 day a week... Which has helped me to at least hold my weight. At least I'm not gaining. I feel a bit less panic... A bit more relaxed.

But... I need to do this!
