Have you ever talked about an eating disorder before? Do you have to work to keep yourself from getting back into that headspace? For me there's a very fine line between trying to be healthy, and craziness. And actually, now that I think about it, I find that I'm much more prone to the craziness when I'm maintaining, rather than actively losing. I'm sure there's a connection to your recent observations about maintenance, but I'm too tired/lazy to make it now...

Feel free not to answer if you don't want to talk about it, but, well, you bolded it so I figured it might be fair game ;)

Jen,
No I don't think I've mentioned it. I dabbled with starvation off and on throughout high school and college. I definitely have the whole perfectionist/extreme will power thing going when I want to go there. I thought it would be an issue all my life and I think it is why I kind of maintained at a higher weight rather than diet in my 20s. I would definitely get a little crazy obsess-o when dieting and had a hard time thinking of anything else. But when I did it this time after having Baby it wasn't like that. And while I do, certainly, struggle with extremes (either working out or NOT at all... very little in between for me) I don't feel a lick of what I used to afflict myself with food wise. I have to say that the last 17 years of therapy has definitely made me a different, much healthier, version of myself.... and a fair amount of the starving was , for me, attention seeking. (which now that I write that I realize that, of course, I still do have that tendency and is why I blog 24/7!... at least now I seek it out in a more healthy way)
