Just Stop It? - POSTED ON: Feb 01, 2019
Is the type of eating behavior that causes obesity primarily based on: Psychological issues or Physiological issues? Is the cause primarily mental and emotional, or is the cause primarily physical?
A common belief is that negative behaviors and bad habits are only symptoms of a bigger, psychological problem, and once you’ve dealt with that issue an unwanted behavior will end up falling away.
That might be true sometimes, but I've never seen it happen in myself, or ....in any kind of proveable way... in others.
It is now also becoming apparent that the type of eating that causes ongoing obesity involves deep biological roots.
So, if the primary “behavior battle” is actually rooted within one’s own physiology, rather than merely inside one’s own mind, perhaps “WHY” I desire to eat more food than my body needs to stay “thin” or inside a “normal” BMI is not really all that important .
Was Bob Newhart actually on track when he told his patient to “Stop It”?

Things are essentially the same for me at present. Even after 13+ years of maintenance … it is still requiring an immense amount of personal ongoing effort to maintain my large weight loss. Many details about this can be found in articles here at DietHobby within the Blog Category: Status Updates, More About Me.
My DietHobby posts have become less frequent because it seems like I’ve already shared …(repeatedly) … everything that I have to share. I am continuing to learn about, and experiment with, various diets and non-diets, however, I am now choosing to do this in a rather selfishly anonymous manner and have decided that my future personal contacts or personal involvements with online dieting forums and other dieting support groups will be limited to only those which I deem mutually beneficial.
Here at age 74, at times I closely identify with David Bowie’s Major Tom. Posted below is the music video: Space Odyssey, in which Major Tom, an astronaut, loses communication with Earth as he floats into space.
