It IS a great freedom, isn't it? The freedom I am currently experiencing is freedom from having to think about food, to plan meals, to shop, to cook, and to make choices. I know that this is a pretty unreal condition and can't last forever, but for the present time, I have peace; I am not at war with myself over food. However, as I mentioned in my post, sweets still look good to me and I am not at the place where you are today. When vegetables look better to me than cookies, I will know that I have conquered my other addiction. So . . . I carry on . . . and hope to some day be where you are!
