Redefine Your Relationship With Food

About a month ago, I found this thread at Metafilter:

There is some good stuff there:

Two things I had to seriously change about my thinking in order to keep myself sane and also not gain weight. I had to stop pretending that my male partner and I could eat the same food. He’s far larger and has a far higher metabolism. I make less testosterone, creating muscle mass on my body is a herculean task. He just has muscles. It’s a bastard. There’re usually two separate breakfasts, lunches, and dinners around here.

The other thing is that if I overeat I try not to consider it a moral failure and just keep overeating out of guilt and self-hatred. It was a reeeeeally hard practice to get into but now it’s second nature. So I ate an entire sleeve of oreos at lunch? Oh well, it’s still salad and an omelet for dinner, and fruit for breakfast.

I keep telling myself that I need to read the entire thing, gleaning ideas from it that will help me, but something is resisting that idea. I don’t know what it is, but I think it’s the same part of me that wants to eat an entire sleeve of Oreos…
