It took me years to get it.

I like that I can make myself foods that are 'special' and similiar to my old way of eating but I rarely make them (except oopsies) because I don't crave them or think they are necessary. I love the way I eat and never feel deprived. I always think I have traded up in my food choices. I will take bacon and eggs over toast with low fat spread and a piece of GMO fruit any day.

The key for me was understanding that weight is just one of the issues when it comes to diet. Sure, weight loss is great but so is the absence of pain, digestive issues and the long list of other benefits. These have been important to me in loving my woe.
