I made it through christmas and boy it was not easy. As the smell of tamales wafted through the air while they were cooking and the spoon scraping the bottom of the posole pot was chiming in my ears. The warmth of the fresh bread baking in the oven followed by the sweet flavors of the buttery snowball Cookies being dunked in powdered sugar. I managed to to decorate the sugar cookies like a family and participate in most of the christmas traditions that we usually do but boy was it hard not to lick the frosting off my fingers when it would drip off the cookie. As everyone ate i too ate my 2 oz of turkey along with my family though it was not the hardest day of my life it was the most trying but i kept my wits and thanked god i was able to withstand the temptations. I only pray for everlasting strengh through my journey. And although i am happy i made it through it also makes me sad about how much this life of mine revolved around food.

It does get easier. There will be changes to make mentally and emotionally as well as physically, but as you succeed in making them you will discover a new independence.
