Haven’t blogged for a while. I haven’t felt that I have much to say. I just keep plugging along on my eating plan. Thanksgiving was reasonable. I have come to the realization that I have a “sugar problem.” If I eat food with a lot of sugar, it makes me crave more sugar. I kind of already knew I had this sugar problem, but really did not acknowledge it. What hit it for me was doing the cleanse right before Thanksgiving. The cleanse was good and not overly harsh (in other words it wasn’t a colon cleanse), but part of the cleanse process was to keep sugar to a minimum. So I did. I got done with the cleanse the day before Thanksgiving. (You have to time these things…..LOL!) To make a long story short, the pie set me off. I was planning on only having one piece of pie. So I had one piece after the mid-day feast……and then another for dinner. Not a total wreck, but not a good choice either. Friday I found I could not resist the cookies my daughter had out. Saturday, I had a few more cookies. (Which gave me a sugar crash….did not like that much.) I finally got a hold of myself Sunday. Sugary foods need to be avoided as much as possible by me if I want to keep the weight off. The “Oh what’s the harm in one” attitude needs to go. There is harm in just one for me because it sets me off hunting for more. Doesn’t mean I will never have another cookie or piece of pie again. It does mean that I’ll think twice before I do and will need to plan on how to avoid eating more of it for a few days after. There are still lessons to be learned, even once you lose the weight.
