Comments:

OK. How do I think things are going? Hmm… I guess well. Although I am constantly aware that I have thoughts of restricting my food intake even further. I have a constant internal dialogue going between my logical side and my emotional side. Awareness is key to me here. So far I am enjoying the food I am preparing and eating, which is also a great must for me.
