My War with The Potato - Day 3

Saturday, April 28, 2012

I've made it through another day without a potato! So my war on the potato is coming along well. I don't know where this is going yet, but I like what I'm seeing so far. I'm even starting to feel like I can do this without no problem. Still hanging back a little, anticipating a sudden stop or curve in the road, but it just feels like maybe the cravings the the root go the same way the cravings for sugar go - away! So, leaning on my experience with my sugar departure, I'm thinking on the lines of, "Whatever you do, do not wake up the potatotooth. I believe it sits right next to the sweetooth, which may be convienent. Don't bother either of them.

Onward! emoticon

    I didn't find it hard to give up potatoes, pasta, or bread actually. I only occasionally eat them now.

    Good for you! You should be proud of yourself for doing this. Hang in there your almost half way there.

    I think the potato is a lot like plain sugar in that it is hard to cut out and just eating a little doesn't work. I stayed away from the potato for nearly a year before I was able to start eating just a little where before I couldn't stop. Keep up the great work on resisting that temptation!

    I believe there is a harmless one between the sweettooth and potatotooth, it's the sweetpotatotooth;}

    YAY! There is power in threes! Yes~ 3 Days, 3 Weeks, 3 Months, 3 Years~ don't ask me why it's just so. (I know, as I permanently liberated myself from the hideous nicotine addiction six years ago next month.) Just stay the course and take it one day at a time. YOU'RE DOING IT, dear heart~ you are kickin' that tater to the curb! YAY! *hugs* BB~ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
