I found this video on Facebook and it describes me to a T. Watch this and see if you can relate.
I was doing so well eating today until that 2 o’clock slump hit me like a ton of bricks. I didn’t have any sweets in the house because I know if I have them I will eat them. What did I choose to do? I baked a cake from scratch then I ate a quarter of it. My husband makes fun of me because he knows that I will bake to my heart’s content if I have a sweets craving. It’s so frustrating because I always eat the cake/cookie/pie etc. then I feel terrible because I feel guilty and yucky. I did something different this time though… I got up, threw the remaining cake in the trash and got on the treadmill. I watched an inspiring weight loss video on You tube and I walked a mile.
I guess I am just plain going to have to give up the sugar altogether. It seems so extreme but I am addicted to it. I can’t control myself around it. I’m just going to have to give it up and I am starting now. Will you follow me on this journey? I will start by eating fruit when I have a sugar craving along with drinking tons of water and eating healthy meals and snacks. Do you guys have any books or articles you recommend on quitting sugar? I know this is going to be hard but as they say, nothing worth doing is easy. I’ll be back!
