I have realized that I am an addict. I can’t fight it. I’m afraid I’ll have to go cold turkey. That’s right, live a sugar free life. Sugar is one of the very first things I think of when I wake up in the morning. And I think of it fondly all day long. If I only thought about sugar, there would be no problem. Unfortunately, I can’t resist the beautiful siren song. When I get the craving for something, I’m absolutely powerless.
I’m not talking about all sugar. There’s sugar in pretty much everything and I’m not going to fight it (plus my body would probably go into shock). Just giving up sweets.
I know from doing this once before that the first two or three days are torture. TORTURE!!!! But I don’t have a choice. So wish me luck. I’m having one day off every other week where I can eat two sugary things (I like making these elaborate rules for myself. It makes me take it seriously.) I just keep reminding myself that my mind is stronger than my body. I can resist the sugar. Oh yes, I can. I think, I hope, maybe . . .
