“I can want something and choose to eat it, or I can want something and choose not to eat it. If I did the first all the time I’d be doing addictive eating. If I did the second all the time, I’d be too perfect. Is that right?”
Yes, that’s it. The only thing I’d change in what you’ve written is to say, “I choose to accept and allow this feeling of unsatisfied desire” (or something like that) when you choose not to eat. In other words, Work Through Desire.
“So when do I choose not to be perfect?”
I’ll speak about that in Session 6. But it sounds like you’re doing fine, so no big worry. You discover what you really need through trial and error – you get to practice every day!
