I can narrow previous post to:
1. I commit to relearn to eat when hungry and stop when satisfied.
2. When I err, I will adapt my plan and go on.
3. I will ask for support when needed and be grateful for it.
4. I will track my progress to keep me focused and motivated.

Day 1
I use to eat when hungry and stop when satisfied. My little grandchildren do this all the time. Babies know this at birth.
But along the way I stopped listening to my body and started listening to ads and other people. I became more sedentary and started to eat more for any and every reason (emotional hunger.) I gained weight.
Is this a condition (Lesson 91)? No, it is just that I became lazy and gave into immediate gratification (lack of discipline which is really remembering what you want the most). Do anything long enough and it becomes a habit. Now I have to replace those habits that enabled me to gain weight. Doing something for a 100 days should do it.

Accountability
BF: I wasn't hungry but I needed to eat for fuel so I had a cup of soup. Didn't need to check if I was satisfied as I was not hungry in the first place.
Lunch: Since I wait 3 to 4 hours between meals, I was a little hungry. I notice it takes very little food to satisfy me.
Snack: I am not very hungry so I will have a small sundae (a dish of fruit and yogurt).
Dinner: I was hungry and served myself a small dinner. I mindlessly ate it and went to do something else. My mind was elsewhere and I didn't notice if I was satisfied. Good thing I served a small portion as I would have polished off any portion and wouldn't have noticed until I was stuffed.

Day 1 - 3 mindful meals and 1 mindless meal.
emoticon New habit - keep a tally sheet as a reminder to eat mindfully. Post daily.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle you know nothing about.
Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.
Drop judgment and pick up love.
If you can move a grain of sand a day, eventually you will move a mountain.
Crappy choices bring crappy feelings.
Can'ts are joy limiters.

For the next 10 days I will report on the following:

1 - I use to be that way - I ate when I was hungry and stopped when I was satisfied.
2 - R U committed or just interested? - I choose to eat when hungry and stop when satisfied.
3 - Do it anyway! - The choice is already made.
4 - Boundaries, not diets- No excuses.
5 - Magic Notebook - I track my progress so I can stay focused.
6 - Protect your program - I am protecting my health.
7 - I can do it!- I am doing it.
8 - Help me, please - Join me and we can cheer each other on.
9 - Here's what I want - Share what works for you.
10 - Appreciate good support- Thank you.

The team is finishing up Days 91 - 100. This week. Let see what I can use for my plan for the next 100 days.
91 - Obesity is a condition. I think overeating is a habit which is the cause of obesity.
92 - Accept the solution. Work on a solution. Develop your own plan that works for you.
93 - 20 year plan. I am just going to focus on today's plan.
94 - 3 columns of weight of weight loss - weight loss (stuck to your plan); maintain (indulged a bit; gain (went back to old habits).
95 - Set your intentions. DNA as I will have reached my goal by Day 95.
96 - What will it take. I figured that out the first week. If I am not at my goal yet, I will continue with my plan, tweaking when necessary to improve.
97 - Use what works. Discipline is remembering what I want the most.
98 - New Years Resolution. Daily resolution. Keep going.
99 - It is not in here. Overeating will never solve emotional hunger.
100 - This is how I live. What I planned 100 days ago is not a habit. (invisible masters)

1. I commit to relearn to eat when hungry and stop when satisfied.
2. When I err, I will adapt my plan and go on.
3. I will ask for support when needed and be grateful for it.
