Iím in favor. Unfortunately. We even have a dog named Sweets, although neither my husband nor I remember who actually came up with the name (shortened from Sweetheart). Yep, my sweet tooth is the size of Arizona, and always has been for as long as I can remember. Cravings are made worse when associated with Ďregularí food, like pizza for some reason--always have to have something chocolate after a pizza. Thereís probably a physiological reason behind it and if not, perhaps a psychological one.
But so far, Iíve been cookie-free (my biggest downfall) for the last few days and itís going good. Iíve found a cup of hot tea in the afternoon kind of takes care of the sugar-munchies. Shoving the cookies in the back of the freezer also works (out of sight, out of mind). Iíve conquered some of the cravings with fruit, reasoning in this early weight loss stage that I could probably have as much as I want of that and not do too much damage. Have to give a shout-out here to MYJOYNOW45EST for the fruit basket goodie she sent: thank-you and nom, nom!
So a streak of 3 days, woo-hoo! Iím off to look at the tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge because some moderation in life can be a good thing.
