I am trying the Sweet Truth Challenge for the second time. My sugar addiction is making me sick. Yesterday, after a long day at work in the ER, I had to have a bag of Hershey Kisses. The grocery store I went to didn't have the classic kind. I traveled up and down the aisles hoping a bag would appear out of the thin air. It didn't. As an alternative I purchased two king sized Hershey bars (740 calories). I ate them quickly when I got home. After which I felt terrible. This addiction has to go. Work out and eat healthy for the most part, but I am not seeing the results I want. I know it is partly due to my sugar consumption. For weeks at a time I will eat 1 bag of Kisses daily until I literally feel sick or dehydrated.
On the other hand, I don't like the "have to it " feeling. Nothing but my desire to live a life pleasing to God should control me. When I eat Hershey's milk chocolate I feel out of control. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I am an over comer and I will overcome my sugar addiction.
