Way to go! Eating has definitely become a more joyful experience for me now than I am able to truly taste my food. I'm still working toward being where you are but am greatful at how far I have come.

Gratitude must be the highest level of emotion. :D

I am very grateful to have experienced balance. I was always a healthy eater, now I am grateful to balance healthy eating with healthy levels of exercise!

At last, I feel hunger. At last, I feel pleasure from tasting and from eating. After almost 1 years on SP and, so importantly, tracking my food, my weirdnesses about eating have gone or at least greatly diminished. After a lifetime of thinking of food only for survival, of not eating, of not feeling hunger, by tracking I have learned to be aware of what and how much or how little I am consuming. This team's discussions have encouraged me to discover delight in eating and have also encouraged me in my own research and empowerment devising my own nutrition. I have found out that I have an appetite (At last!). I have found out that I am not numb to hunger. Finally, for the first time in forever, probably my whole life, I am eating and with joy. New is this to me to have healthy feelings and actions in regards to something so basic as food. Has anyone else shed their weirdnesses about food and found something easier and healthy?
