I ate a cupcake tonight, and I'm proud of myself. I know that sounds weird, but here's the thing: I am learning to go out for an evening and not eat crazy. I had salad, steamed shrimp, and about 1/2 cup of rice. I drank club soda. Then later, I had a small chocolate cupcake. It was very yummy. I'm sure I will regret it, but my point is: Eating normally does not mean never ever again eating a sweet treat, but rather, eating in moderation, so you can indulge occasionally. I am so proud of myself for eating conservatively at dinner and choosing a small cupcake for dessert. I know there are folks who can do better, who can stay on plan every meal every day all week. But I want to find my way to a way of eating that will last me for the rest of my life, and life includes evenings out. So I felt like I did a good job tonight. Excuse me for being self-congratulatory.

I think I'm starting to get my eating act back together again. I guess maybe I was just bored and needed a little time out. I can't go completely crazy, of course, because I'm too busy right now to allow myself to make myself ill by eating say two slices of deep dish pizza, which might about kill me. So after about two weeks of eating more than I should, even if I wasn't being totally terrible, I seem to have gotten myself a bit better organized, better motivated in the past couple of days. What seems to have worked was to allow myself a few treats over a couple of days so that I stopped feeling deprived. I am very suspicious I was just so aggravated by the new set of dietary restrictions to prevent kidney stones that I was in temporary rebellion. But after I saw the doctor yesterday, it didn't seem quote so onerous. He told me the information I'd read about oranges and grapefruit was wrong, and that I can eat those. He confirmed the information that when you eat dairy with high oxalate food, the calcium and oxalate bond together and that prevents the crystals from forming and then becoming stones -- so I can have a piece of chocolate with a couple of ounces of skim milk; I can have spinach mixed with cottage cheese; etc. So maybe I just felt a little less aggravated about things. The catch is, when calcium and oxalate bond, you don't absorb EITHER the calcium or the oxalate, so that's a potential downside. But I think this is do-able.
