Laurie- That’s great and very inspiring to read. Thanks for sharing that!!
Louise- I found this line “when I was faced with an addictive desire, I did not choose not to eat something. Instead, I learned to choose to feel the addictive desire instead of eating. It sounds like just a semantic difference, but this made a big difference for me, in terms of feeling deprived. I wasn’t deprived, I could eat the food, but I could also experience the desire, even welcome it” very profound. That’s a great reframe that I think will be useful for me and others so thanks for sharing that.
