Renee, this is inspiring, how you work through your desire. Thank you for sharing the details.
After dinner, my desire is at a 10! And I justify giving in because I haven’t eat “THAT” much all day.
But I’m not hungry. And it’s the addictive desire, especially for addictive foods.

I like comparing it to a “MOTOR”. It for sure feels like a MOTOR to me!
My motor turns on strong and I feel relief once I’ve turned it off (overeaten).

Thanks for pointing out the aspects of working thru desire: changing my brain, taking control, and realizing the desire can’t hurt me.
