My hunger issues

Since I've gone up to 120 g of protein a day, I haven't been hungry much at all. So Dr. Awesome was right about needing more fuel.

I am really afraid of hunger. I guess this is understandable because hunger used to be my enemy. Excess hunger is what got me back up over 220 pounds. I don't think it's what got me to 200+ the first time -- that seemed more related to a lack of satiety and bad eating habits. But once I got over 200, it's what got me back there every time I lost weight.

But my body isn't lying to me any more. So I need to learn to listen to it. At least within reason.
