eight months

Saturday, March 30, 2013

Wow I can't believe it eight months with no processed sugar. I feel wonderful. I am so relaxed and calm. I am thinking clearly. I make wise choices. If I get a little antsy and want to change things or not sure what I am doing is right it does not take me long to touch base with my sparkers and they usually are so encouraging and seem to say the right thing and I get back on track. I am having no cravings for sweets what so ever. I guess if you don't eat them you don't want them. We were in a store and people were wild over grabbing candy for Easter. Sugar is very additive and they were acting like they were needing their fix of candy. I use to be right in the mix. I am so glad if I do some grabbing its going to be fruit. The more I study the effects of sugar on the body the happier I am with the choices I have made. I have learned all kind of neat recipes for sweets with just dates, nuts, coconuts, peanut butter, dried fruits, etc. Its amazing how banana ice cream taste. I mean just a frozen banana whipped up by itself or fruit, nuts added and honey and cocoa for a chocolate syrup. We can be healthy if we really want to be and I do. Happy Easter everyone and thanks for all the encouragement.

    As you mentioned the more sugar I eat the more I seem to want. Sugar is very addicting, unfortunately. I sure wish it was healthy for us but of coarse it's not. Are you on a special diet or just using common sense and your own knowledge about how your body feels when you eat sugar?. Keep it up. I'm proud of you.

    Hugs,

    You are so right about the sugar fix that you see people need and how they act too. Fruit is better and sometimes a little too sweet.
