This is truly "eating to live" instead of "living to eat". I was telling my husband that I just am not thinking about food that much. It used to be such a part of my life... craving things. Now, when meal time comes around it's like, okay I have to eat my meal now for my sustanance instead of dying to dig in. The only time during the day I actually feel hungry and could see myself eating a lot (if I allowed myself) is the afternoon. The snack in the afternoon is a lifesaver for me. And even though right after it I feel like I could eat 5 times as much, I just tell myself to wait 30 minutes, and I'll feel completely differently about it...and I do! It's amazing. It's like the neatest science experiment to me!
Anyway, it's so nice to be feeling like I'm eating to live, instead of my cravings taking over my life!
