now, things are happening.
Yesterday I made the family their weekly homemade loaf of bread. Usually the whole time I am making it I am saying to myself "only 1 piece, only 1 piece" sort of like a mantra. Yesterday I didn't. I was making the bread as I was preparing for a friend to come over for a 'quilting bee', cleaning up the craft area, making a nice salad for lunch, quick bathroom checks, etc. I was not totally focused on the bread. The bread came out of the oven. I let it cool and sliced it. This is usually when I eat the ends-I like them no body else does-but I didn't, didn't have to fight myself (no, you don't need that you can have a piece with lunch-that sort of conversation with myself). I just didn't eat it. No drama, no in-fighting, just didn't eat it. Then I had a very small part of the end piece with some Kerrygold, with my lunch, and that was it. No going back, no sneaking another piece, no thought of it at all.
During the witching hour, nothing, no looking for sweets, no perusing the pantry, nothing. The same for after dinner.
Something is definitely different. I am not having to use sheer will power to stay away from a food. Something is very definitely different!
I am more optimistic, that using the flavorless windows will help me to get where I need to be.
