Thank you all so much for your input. I will certainly look more into the leptin issue. I've been given a lot to take into consideration and I think most importantly the support of knowing someone is there to discuss the issues with. I suppose something I should think of is starting a journal and becoming accountable for what I eat.
We had dinner: London broil, braised leeks with bacon, and a salad w/ romaine, cucumber, tomatoes, black olives, and a dash of sunflower seeds. I was full. But I swear that right now this very second I am thinking about food. I will not eat anything before bed. I will make that promise now. But it doesn't change the fact that even though I ate until content, now 3 hours later I am obsessing about food and that is just unacceptable.
Big thanks again everyone.
