I read this on a blog this morning and absolutely loved the writing and meaning behind it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did:
I see it now, you surrendered to food. I don't mean you gave up and relinquished your power to it in the conventional definition of "surrender".... no, you took a big sigh and made the decision to stop fighting against it. To accept that food was there to stay, and like any other reality, it had to be accepted, and dealt with, collaboratively. If you couldn't beat it (and yourself) into submission, conquer it, than you had to find a way to co-exist with it, in a way that allowed you both to flourish. That way, you're still you, in charge of you, enjoying and living with food which is free to be whatever it is.
