This Year, No Pumpkin Pie Fantasies!!! That's How I know I've truly Left Sugar!!

Here goes the same ole song...
Prior to 4-5 years ago, I had a lifelong curse of being able to eat anything without weight gain. A curse because it spoiled me into thinking that I'd be that way forever and ever.
Not so with the introduction of hormonal changes, job stress, life stress, and tons of other changes. Around this time of year, my very favorite pumpkin pie would take center stage. No, not just a piece, but I was used to eating the entire pie in a day, and sometimes one the next day.
Fortunately, with the past two years of this lifestyle change, I did not get as carried away, but still had a battle with "portion" control. (which meant NOT THE ENTIRE PIE!) Okay, well, see I think what's happened to me is that during this past 4.5 months since my dear cousin passed away, I started to return to sugar.
However, I remember a technique from my college days in Psych class - satiation. I think that I ate so much sugar that I got sick of and from it. Truly, I can hardly stand the thought of it now.
So, no pumpkin pie fantasies for me. I even bought a Carvel ice cream cake this morning for a friend. Didn't even want any!
Wishing everyone a great holiday. I'm thankful for my sparkfriends and all the help you've given me.
