I am a sugar addict. It's hard when being surrounded in a family and household that doesn't care about health and will indulge and beg for sweets whenever possible at all cost. Ice cream in the fridge. Cakes and cookies are non-stop. I am taking my first step to change by joining this challenge so here goes. I am optimistic and scared at the same time considering Christmas is around the corner and I am the baker for the family. Help!
I am just now seeing your post. You are not alone, I am the same way. Definitely a sugar addict. My family and I are doing the same thing, trying to overhaul our diet. We have done pretty well, not bringing sweets into the house. So far, have been able to cut back and not have sweets every day. Trying to just have on special occasions or no more than once a week. Maybe you and I can keep each other going! Good luck!!
MEG061104 and to the team challenge...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
I am a sugar addict! I am trying very hard to get it under control. I have realized that I am one of those people who once I have sugar I cannot stop. I am trying to cut out all processed sugar. My family and I overhauled our diet a while back and cut out almost all processed food and I recently went vegetarian, but I have had a heck of a time with sugar. I am looking forward to this challenge to help me be able to enjoy sugary foods every now and then instead of every day.
