Today is the 9th day that I have not had a sweet treat. That in itself is amazing enough. But, two other things are now happening that I find equally amazing:
1) I could care less about food. I am literally eating half of what I used to and only care about food when I get hungry.
2) Realizing now that in addition to giving up sweet treats I also need (for health purposes) to give up dairy. I am noticing that when I eat dairy I don't feel that well. I've known that I have needed to do this for a while but couldn't make myself to give it up. Now, I just don't care about cheese. I would rather have a black belt than cheese.
Whatever weird emotional attachment I had to food seems to be disappearing. I am intensely grateful for this freedom and ability to focus in on what I really want for my life.
