So, I guess what I've learned from this experience is.... Don't do that again. I thought I had made a good strong habit of eating mindfully and it would make it through the off-period (relatives in town for two weeks, which then got extended to my vacation, which then got extended for no good reason at all). But I was wrong. Very wrong. It became an excuse to indulge in everything at any and all times.
I was able to hold on for about a week. So I guess I'm learning my limits, and if this is to be a lifelong effort, then it's good to learn those.
Getting back into the spirit again. Here I go!
