Is it freedom from one addiction, only to exchange it for another addiction?
Is it freedom to gaze at my body in the mirror, in a different way from the way I used to look at my body?
Is it eating a chocolate cupcake without analyzing the calories in it?
Is it freedom to not talk about diets and eating and food and running ALL the time?
