I am addicted to sugar. I realized I was really liking sugar way too much when I started making sure I always had something sweet around to eat. I was lonesome and used that for my excuse among others. Then I changed my thinking and decided that I didn't want to live what little years I may have left fat and unhappy and not feeling good about myself.

I am addicted to sugar. I realized I was really liking sugar way too much when I started making sure I always had something sweet around to eat. I was lonesome and used that for my excuse among others. Then I changed my thinking and decided that I didn't want to live what little years I may have left fat and unhappy and not feeling good about myself. I battled with myself at first and said I was a grandma now and we were supposed to be cooks and I didn't have to be sexy anymore because there was " no man to please". Then I decided that I did not want to be like that. I could change my mind to enjoy the time I have more if I am not self conscious about my appearance and feel better about life. I will be free and not addicted to any substance or person except the Lord. With his love for me and help I will be an overcomer! You too.
When I started this my main goal was to lose 50 pounds for my 40th class reunion in the summer of 2014. I have never been to one. I havn't seen these old friends since then but I have connected with some on facebook.
I have been keeping track of my food and I knew I had to get completely off sugar. I have been walking/running around the lake 1.2 mile at the park daily when weather permits. I also do a Richard Simmons work-out daily rotating between Oldies 2,3,4. Drink water! Sometimes I will allow Sunday off or another day. Actually, my daughter-in-law and I have started walking the 4 mile hike through the park after church on Sunday.
I am a single 57 year old Christian lady that still has many good years left - Lord willing! I have one grandaughter I cherish. (She is not really liking this change in Me-Me because she used to get a lot of sweet treats here.) I live in central Mississippi but I used to live on the coast.
I am trying to work "The Daniel Plan" by pastor Rick Warren, and 2 doctors, into my life and it has really opened my eyes to so many harmful things I was eating. I am trying to find a balance as I started a Sunday evening 6 week study of "Gods at War" by Kyle Idleman.
