I had a dessert crisis last night. I was in a fit of craving for an ooey gooey chocolate dessert. This of course is a problem in a world in which eating a slice of chocolate cake may satisfy the craving but also make me sick for 3 days. Luckily, we remembered that there were some of my homemade gluten-free brownies in the freezer. I had a small square of brownie with a small scoop of my homemade ice cream and some homemade caramel sauce. I don't think I have ever been more totally satisfied by a dessert. Again, I'm reinforced in my sense that I am developing a healthier relationship with food that will last the rest of my life. I didn't feel as though I needed to finish off the brownies or the ice cream. One sensible portion made me feel like I can go a week or two without anything similar to eat. I am so pleased. I don't want the rest of my life to feel as though I live in the land of denial.

I think I am really coming to a good place about food after all these years. Of course, the fact that I have had to completely upend my diet thanks to IBS, and that I've managed to stick to FODMAP, has helped a lot. My tastes have changed so much since I've been doing FODMAP. When I'm feeling really hungry, I think about a nice chunk of lactose-free cheese or a Luna Protein Bar, or some protein dense item, or if I want crunchy, I go for carrots or buckwheat crispbread. I don't miss baked goods the way I did at first, and I'm doing OK with only having ice cream when I have the time to make it myself. I really look forward to my buckwheat pancakes and gluten-free fruit crisps. The point is, I think I'm finding a way to not be on a diet all the time, but to eat in a way that controls my weight but doesn't make me feel deprived all the time. I realize that the trip to France was a real test and a tremendous achievement -- it would have been so easy to fall off the wagon in France, but I didn't. The desire NOT to be sick was stronger than the desire for a chocolate croissant. I hope it's going to pay off in the long run.
