Well, I've gone without carbs and sugar and my weight is coming down. I feel so much better physically except for the urge to go get a donut or something. I went to the grocery store today and WOW! It's like a field of land mines! Sugar and carbs jumping out at you from every side! I stuck to my list and got very healthy foods.
I joined a sugar addiction group today. I think it's just time for me to revamp my food lifestyle. I can't eat sugar. Everytime I do, EVERYTIME, it ends in disaster. I am off of my medication for depression which I'm happy about. I'm convinced that the sugar is affecting my depression. I have had to turn off the TV also, because there are soooo many food commercials! I'm bombarded with images and descriptions of sugary/carby food! This is really tough. My daughter is athletic and therefore very healthy. My husband and son are both very thin and can eat whatever they want. I seem to get heavy just WATCHING them eat! I have friends that are heavy but don't care so I'm always in the middle of opportunities to eat and temptation to eat things that I know I'll regret eating later. I guess I need to have a very frank discussion with all the people that I am close to so that they understand what I'm facing.
The upside to all of this is that my house is very clean, laundry is caught up, and projects have been started with all of this extra time that would have been spent watching TV or thinking about food!!
