Sugar. I love it, and I hate that I love it. How can I stop myself from "needing" it? Ahhhh I'm so frustrated.
A while back, I said I was going to focus hard on replacing sugar with natural sweet things such a fresh fruits. I did.......for a while. Then I fell off that train.
But I'm ready to get back on it. I bought a box of "Bottle Caps" (my favorite candy after Gobstoppers)today while at Wal-Mart, and have been sitting here munching on them all afternoon. I feel like a giant gross slob, seriously. I know I'm not a slob, but what sugar consumption does for my mental/emotional state is complete freaking craziness.
It's gotta stop. It seems like the more sugar I eat, the more I want. Yikes. I've read online that it takes anywhere from 4 days to two weeks to stop having sugar cravings, so I have a feeling the next week or so is going to be very rough.
I through an almost-full box of bottle caps in the trash can at work about 3 minutes ago. I anticipate a high level of difficulty on Saturday when everyone is eating cake and ice cream at Jameson's party. I just have to keep my eye on the prize (better emotional state, better body, etc) and probably do a lot of praying for self-control!
Wish me luck.....
