Getting back in shape :: Eat. Stop. Eat. update

So when I threw out the idea to D, he was monumentally opposed.  I am the. worst. at defending myself.  I had nothing to back up myself really with the program.  I wanted to give it a try anyway.  I've done two days of it.  It is definitely easier to get through a day with no food.  I get a couple hunger pangs but not much.  My only problem is that I've been trying it on days when D is out of town.  I can't stick to it long enough to hold off eating until 9:00 or 9:30 at night.  I contribute it to already unhealthy boredom eating.  I also can not resist from overindulging.  It's weird because my brain says, "Eat only a sandwich or salad."  My stomach and self ends up eating a plate of nachos and half a box of Cheez-Its. 

So I am contemplating that this may not actually work for me since I don't have the self-control to resist overindulging.  But it HAS got me thinking that I really need to get back to what I know actually works for me.  Watching and tracking what I eat and working out consistently.  Obviously maintaining a healthy weight is an ongoing struggle for me.  Any suggestions as to things, tips, motivators that work for you??
