Can I die from lack of sugar?!!!

Monday, April 22, 2013

Let me begin by saying that I am so grateful to those who commented on my blog with well wishes during my grief as well as a little nudge.This site is starting off to be absolutely refreshing!! Usually I feel like I'm just one of the crabs in the bucket. You know how the crabs in a bucket just keep crawling over one another and dragging the one on top back down. There's always food and I promise that someone is trying to convince me to eat it. emoticon

I have not had a desert of any kind today and I almost feel as though I'm obsessing over it. I usually run on Monday nights with a group and lacked the motivation to change and get there after a late meeting. I have kept track of everything that I've bitten and must admit that it was easy with yesterday's planning. I made breakfast and lunch that will last the entire week. Dinner will be the test since I don't typically eat dinner . I've decided that I'm not working out tonight and I forgive myself. I bought new running shoes, loaded new music to Itunes, and picked up a new pair of earphones. I have promised myself to put in some miles even if just on the treadmill after my gym workouts this week.

    ROFL! Your title gave me a good laugh! I know the feeling all too well. I absolutely do NOT keep any sweets in the house! I also avoid all sugar substitutes. I eat a lot of fruit (no juice), and for me that sugar satisfies yet doesn't cause cravings. When you're prone to addiction, like me and sounds like you, you will naturally find a new one when you get rid of the old. I guess the trick is to substitute something healthy, in your case maybe running? Hang in there! It does get easier.

    You're body will miss the sugar at first, but it really isn't fatal - even if it feels like it right now. Sounds like you have a good plan, so you will succeed.

    That "someone" trying to get you to break down is the devil! Stomp on him with those new shoes and tell him to get lost! You are going to beat the sugar cravings and whip that devil into shape!

    Your body can take some time to adjust to less sugar, but I don't think you will die from it! :) Maybe a headache or two. Just keep heading in the right direction!
