I didn't realize how much sugar has a hold on me. I am only in day 2 of removing sweets from my diet and I feel like I am going crazy. I am having withdrawl symptoms and my body is going into shock. I am a true junkie! I might be putting a dramatic spin on my self-imposed sugar ban, but I do believe that my body is reacting to the changes I am making. I think my husband is ready to give my an animal tranquilizer because I am so moody.
I can honestly say that I have become dependent on the sweet things that I nibble on during the day. A chunk of chocolate or a slice of cake would give me the bursts of energy that I need. The more I eat, the more I need. I am surprised at how often I reached for sugar laden snacks. It is legal crack in my world. I almost think that quitting smoking was easier than cutting out junk food. At least smoking has become socially unexceptable.
I did ok today staying away from the garbage, but I am going to be tested this weekend. I am throwing a shower for a girlfriend and there will not only be one cake, but two of them! Cake is my weakness. I live for the stuff. Sunday I have a breakfast date at our favorite pancake joint. It is going to take everything in me not to get something that I can load up with syrup.
