The outlet where the GFI outlet is located is where the power comes in, then feeds the rest of the houses GFI protected recepticals. Shut off the breaker at the panel for that outlet, and pull it out, and see what you got. Many times I have seen all the GFI branches come to that one box. Makes it very easy to seperate the branches to a seperate curcuit. If accessable from the attic or basement, you can add an additional line to that box for the panel, and isolate the out door oulets from the bathrooms. But, you will need to replace the regular outlets with GFI recepticals. Another trick I have seen some people do is to disconnect the branch curcuits from the Load side, and wire them as hot, then replace all the outlets with GFI recepticals, so that if you over load the GFI receptical in one bathroom, it only pops that local outlet. Saves from running to the location of the GFI receptical to reset it. IE, outside using a power tool, and it pops the breaker in the upstairs bath. That can be a real pain. I do however do not know if this is a legal way as far as code goes, but I have seen it done.
