I was someone who ate healthy foods. And, then, a lot of other stuff. Since I'm a librarian, naturally, it was a book that kicked that out of me: The End of Overeating by David Kessler. It's about how processed foods are engineered to trigger cravings for more processed food. I stopped junk food cold turkey after reading that book.

I still want to eat a large volume of food, so I eat giant salads. Not exactly mindlessly, but not mindful, either.

I don't count calories, but I plan my eating the night before (I don't always follow the plan 100%, but having a plan makes a difference).

Just some other things to think about, but having co-dependent tendencies myself, I rather like the idea of letting it go and focusing on taking care of yourself. Who knows, your showing what works by example may be what it takes.
My goal story: Fifty and feeling fabulous!
