I did it!

Monday, January 21, 2013

Today marks the 14th day since I have had even the slightest craving for sugar! I had a huge sugar addiction, HUGE! Doughnuts? Pft.. I could have eaten a dozen a day and still want a snickers before bed. When I was pregnant with my son I had gestational diabetes and ended up having to give myself 3 shots a day just to keep my numbers in check, even then I saw it as a pass to have a piece of cake. The insulin did its job so what was the harm? I was bad!

I wish I could say I had some huge revelation that made me give up sugar, but I didnít. We always have doughnuts in the house and one day I just decided I did not want any. They didnít even look appealing. The day after was the same as well as the day after that and now it has been two weeks since I have had to talk myself out of one..or three.

I have noticed a few changes in how I look at other foods also. Apples are sweet instead of bitter. My peanut butter cliff bar is almost to sweet to enjoy (I gave the last one to my husband and wont be buying more). Even my sugar free energy drinks taste sickly sweet. Like sugar water, seriously.

I am not sure what clicked i my brain but I am happy it did.

    Congratulations and fantastic work! Sugar is a hard thing to beat - not only does it provide us with a physical and emotional high, but it's practically ubiquitous in an American diet. It's frightening to think about how many foods have sweeteners (sugar, high fructose corn syrup, etc.) added to them that just don't need it. :(

So, good for you for becoming sugar conscious and tackling that sweet tooth head on!

    Great feat! I remember giving up soda in 2012, I just decided to do it for whatever reason. Your mind has to make the choice for things to happen!
