Hence, this post 🙂 So, here you go… The 5 things I wish I’d known 5 years ago:    “Backsliding” is natural.  In fact, it’s part of the whole healing process.

That is exactly how I felt (both literally…because I was traveling abroad and had this happen to me, and metaphorically with my eating 🙂 ) I spent
