WELL - THIS IS A FIRST! Sparkpeople is my go-to sanctuary for motivation and pick-me-ups and I can always count on my fellow sparkpeople for encouragement. Today marks the first day EVER that fellow sparkpeople made me feel really bad about myself! Poo on you guys! I've noticed in tracking my food that I'm totally addicted to carbs/sugar etc. (mostly soda but just processed food in general) so I posted on the message boards asking for help (Help! I'm addicted to carbs!) every one who replied (*mostly*) said awful things. EXP:
"I see on your nutrition trackers and you consume 1-2 regular sodas/day. Stop drinking soda. Cut out processed food. Feed yourself REAL food. Empty calories. Coca-cola is totally not a breakfast food. Stop drinking soda. Have you tried diet sodas?"
HELLO PEOPLE- If I wanted to be put on trial, I'd post my nutrition tracker on my Facebook feed, not here in my sanctuary! I'm ashamed of these more-pious-than-thou sparkers! The title says very plainly, I'M ADDICTED TO CARBS. Duuuh. If it were just as easy as not drinking any more soda, I don't think I'd have a problem. It's like smoking, of course people who smoke want to quit.... but if you just scrutinize them about it, they will only want it more.
What I was looking for were some IDEAS on how to cut back on carbs (obviously cutting out soda would end the problem but I can't just quit, I've been trying for three-four years and the closest I can get is 1/day) So what I need are ideas on how to alter the refined FOODS in my life. Simple, fresh foods. Naked foods and useful resources and links and "You can do it"s and all that nonsense. Not. JUST STOP DRINKING SODA YOU DUMB-DUMB. Thanks guys! Thanks a lot!
I'm really upset, here! I try to work on my soda intake (having only 1-2/day is an improvement for me... at the height of my depression, there would be days upon days where sodas were the ONLY calories I would consume, no lie) I got addicted. Sugar/caffeine, it creates a HIGH and I'm A JUNKY.
Hi, my name is Sheena and I'm a coke head. Judge me if you like. I'm going to hole-up with a case of soda now and cry!
