I've been on SP for two years and have done several good things toward a healthier lifestyle.
But the better I do, the more I realize what a way to go I still have in doing many things in a healthier way.
It amazes me that, with my all or none tendencies, I haven't become addicted to anything major. Although the advice of the wise says that a little bit of something will remove that feeling of deprivation, I CANNOT have just a little bit of sweets.
I'm always picking up something to teach myself moderation. Yeah, right! It's like I'm a 5yr old sometimes when it comes to sugar. Today I had one of those invisible tugs of war with an angel on each shoulder as I picked up a small bag of Gharadelli chocolate squares. "You don't really want that," the good angel wisely whispered in one ear. But the other rascally one, said, "Oh come on, teach yourself moderation, for pete's sake. Just have one or two a day as a reward for doing so well."
So, tonight the pkg is in the garbage - empty. And I'm sugar dizzy and feel sick from eating the entire contents.
I will beat sugar. I know I can. This was a tough blog confession to admit to myself and on the computer screen. It's a wonder I have not succumbed to a diabetic coma tonight. (which I don't have - yet!)
Wishing all a great weekend.
