After 2 days of being back on plan consistently, I realized just how good I feel when I eat this way. And I believe I am finally making peace with food. It doesn't have power over me anymore.

I lost another 8 lbs since last month's weigh in. I'm only weighing myself once a month so the daily and even weekly fluctuations don't get in the way for me.
