I don't stress if I go out and eat not so healthy or too much. I try to keep my eye on the long term goal. For me weighing every day helps me know how to tweak my eating. I can keep a better handle on it that way.
Good luck to others that are trying this type of eating.
Its interesting when you look at hunger, it's just another feeling like being tired, thirsty, sleepy, etc. Getting control of that feeling is the hard part. I know I feel the hungriest when I'm bored or around one my favorite snacks, chocolate. I've accepted the fact that I have to abstain because my moderator switch is broken. I've been this way all my life.
My injury continues to progress towards getting better so for the present time I'm keeping my condition up by cycling, working out on the elliptical machine and kettlebell work outs. All done at home, no gym's involved.
Until next time.

- In June 2006, sociologists at Duke University and the University of Arizona, for instance, provided the most recent statistical analysis of the problem. Their report, "Social Isolation in America: Changes in Core Discussion Networks Over Two Decades," announced, among other things, that the number of friends with whom Americans discuss important matters has shrunk as much as 33 percent over a span of nearly 20 years. This problem is particularly acute for young, educated men, who have lost an above-average number of "discussion partners"—down from 3.5 in 1985 to 2.0 in 2004—according to the study. Friendship, the report suggests, has taken a serious dive across the culture, and guys like us in particular are shedding companionship faster than anyone else. (read more)
