Soaking it all in

Hello IE community, it's really wonderful that this place exists. I've been lurking for about a week having just finished the IE book and now mid-way through Health at Every Size and it's all making so much sense to me!!The other morning I woke up and realized how very simple it is.

I don’t need to…See More

So several questions on hunger:1) I am eating to Level 6-7 (or at least what feels like 6-7 at this early point), but what if I don't get hungry (Level 3) for the next meal?  It's happened a few times where I just don't get hungry for dinner...and then it's time for bed & I'm still not hungry.  Should I just go to bed?  Or eat a little something first? Not sure.2) How should I work on dealing with the combo of eating when hungry & a sometimes very busy schedule?  I know there's a bit in…See More

"I think many of us have those ah-ha moments with IE. You discovered that you are using alcohol to de-stress rather than dealing with the underlying issue. My big ah-ha moment was even realizing that I was an emotional eater!"
