I wanted anyone who read my blog from yesterday to know that I am gradually regaining my sanity and my will power. I know this because the lemon cake has stopped talking to me. I can look straight at it and not feel a thing. The last pretty piece went into my daughter's lunch bag this morning, so all that is left is a shell of a cake with no frosting on the sides and a thin layer of green fondant on top. I apologize to any fellow sugar addicts who might have trouble reading these descriptions. I just wanted to share the good news that my decision to write a long blog last night instead of giving in to the temptation to have more cake seems to have worked. Getting the truth about my briefly renewed sugar addiction up on the screen seems to have done the trick. This is all part of an ongoing process of forcing myself to a clearer awareness of what I am putting into my body. I have done a lot of unconscious and semi-conscious eating in my time, and feel very excited to have a new strategy for keeping myself awake and aware.
I hope this serves as a help to anyone out there who might be struggling.
