Bacon, Surf Boards, and a Dive Bar
Her entrée was a lobster roll that also had even more bacon! She offered me a strip, and I took a small bite out of curiosity. Guess what, it still tastes good, but my mind was able to ignore that rest of the strip and acknowledge how unhealthy it is for me. So, a salad covered in bleu cheese dressing now tastes awful (I used to love it), but eggs and steak still taste good -- it's just I have no desire for those things anymore. It is amazing to me that my mind can change so much. But look at it this way - most people love ice cream or cake, but you don't eat it every day, or even every week. Yes, I still like food that is terribly unhealthy if eating in large quantities, but I have conquered my all or nothing attitude -- at least as far as food is concerned.
I ended the evening with a banana and a giant bowl of cherries feeling rather satisfied with myself since the night could have ended up very differently if the old me surfaced. He did not.
