One thing I learned today: I want this to be permanent.
One thing I'm grateful for: "The most interesting thing that happened wasn't that I successfully avoided cheating. It was that some of the people I spent the holidays with treated me as if though I was torturing myself. They knew I had a food addiction, were inspired by my progress, and congratulated me on my progress. However, they expected me to cheat. I’m glad I can look from the outside in at the absurd pedestals we place on our food on. To me, it’s tantamount to presenting your car’s gasoline in a crystal vase before putting it in the tank. That’s partially why I’m successful."
