The wonderful thing about all of it is that… this relationship is designed, decided, and controlled by me and only me! The baked goods have no say, nor should they. Sweet or sour, I get to be in charge.
When I was accidentally dieting (because I seriously didn’t know it – most people don’t), I would think about what foods will help me lose weight, how much I should eat to lose weight, when to eat so I lose weight, etc.
I felt liberated with this permission, and glad to be eating everything with my family again. I doubt they noticed the change, but they did stop asking if I would join them – because they knew I would.
