So, apparently what I have been doing to stabilize and/or increase my weight has been working. I have gained back both some of my appetite and some of the poundage I had lost. Thank Goddess for that.

Here are the things I did:

- Chivvied myself into a normal eating schedule (for me that means 4x per day) but was very permissive about what and how much I ate.
- Asked my friends to help encourage me in eating. Tsuj and gentlescholar were especially helpful with this.
- Tried to eat, where possible, with distractions. Eat while watching something on the computer, or reading, or having a conversation.
- Tried to eat what I was craving, if I was craving anything.
- Did the opposite of all the weight-loss advice I could think of. Put more on my plate than I thought I could eat, put sauce on everything, drink soda or juice instead of water, eat cookies MANY COOKIES.

Heh. :) I have a good friend who is a stress eater, and she and I really wish we could add up our issues and come out with something like a functional eating pattern as the average.

I can't eat when I'm stressed, which is why I lost weight while I was unemployed and desperate. Now that I'm working at a job I love, I'm overweight again because I'm calm and therefore stuff my face. *sigh*

Oh, how's your temp job search going?

i'm very pleased you've managed a happy making plan!

especially the bit about where to be more strict (timing) and where to be more relaxed (variety). finding that balance is wonderful
