Dreaming of Sweets!

Sunday, February 13, 2011

It's been almost 2 months without any sugary sweets, at least in real life. I've spent most part of last week dreaming with sweets. I ate Cameos and Bimbos (vanilla and cream crackers) and within the dream I remember I am not supposed to eat any of them. In my first and second dreams I realized I was not supposed to eat any sweets and started questioning myself and stopped eating them. On later dreams, however, I realize I am not supposed to eat them but I take a "what the heck, I relapsed" attitude. Somehow my brain says it is ok to eat a little sugary sweet, but not the whole package (knowing I am unable to control quantities in real life). These dreams are interesting and cruel, but help me realize I have a very very sweet tooth that will not allow me to follow my calorie goal if I did in fact include them in my diet. In that sense, these dreams help me keep focused on not eating sugary sweets for the next 24 hours... so, until then, no real sugary sweets for me!

    I do this too, especially since I stopped eating sugary sweets. Unfortunately, I have given in too often after having these dreams and waking up being able to taste them. Congrats on your will power! I have given in too often. Sounds like you are doing great.
