My name is DeterminedAgain and I'm a sugarholic.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Seriously. It all started with some well intentioned friends giving me Halloween candy. It spiraled down into a sneaky sugar spiral of yuck. Seriously. I think about sweets all the time...I want refined, processed junk. I salivate at the thought of a cookie. Or a donut. Or a pancake. It's getting to be ridiculous. And gross. I'm not super indulging, but I will find a way to rationalize things too much. The time has come to put my foot down.

The first step is admitting, the next step is...well, stopping. I'm going to start by detoxing. No more processed sugars if I can help it. Today is a bad day to have that realization considering I'm going to my little charge's third birthday party tomorrow, but I figure I can always say no. I need to find the willpower somewhere.

    Go for it! Sugar can definitely be addicting. If I have it in the house, I want it.

    Sugar is crazy addictive! I had sweet tea at a conference in October... and then that kind of nudged me toward drinking other things than water again. And then there was Halloween and I had candy and it made me feel sick, but I kept eating it. *shakes head* I'm starting to get it under control now, though I haven't cut sugar completely. I basically started making fruit choices my snacks and saying no to candy. It helped me branch back into water and healthier choices. :)

    detoxing is hard... but once it's over, it's over. you generally won't crave the yucky stuff once it's out of your system... i'd probably do the same thing. sometimes moderation just doesn't work out. good luck!
