Not so sweet tooth.

Sunday, April 08, 2012

I think my sweet tooth is leaving me. I still can eat candy and cake, no doubt about it. The amount though, is going way down. Today, I made cupcakes for our Easter celebration, and everyone ate two, but I only ate one. It was good, but it was enough.

My daughter offered me some of her bunny, and I declined.

My mother in law brought me my weakness, cadbury creme eggs (she got the mini ones because she knew I was dieting and thought I could eat the tinies instead of the biggies - she's so sweet!) and I could only eat one.

This is a good thing, maybe a GREAT things. I've always struggled with moderation when it comes to sweets. I would sometimes skip healthy stuff to save up calories for sweet treats.

The homemade bread I made though? THAT I ate two good sized chunks of. With butter. I enjoyed every bite, even though it may have leaned to the excessive side. I will say though, it was fat free bread, and whole wheat, so there is that. Bread is my real weakness now, so that is something to work on. I'm pretty pleased though, that at least I'm moving in the right direction with the sugar!

    Mmm, maybe you could pass some of your "Low Sugar Goddess" tips to me... I so badly want to just get off of sugar once and for all! But every night, after that dinner hour, I get the craving for something sweet... And I'm tired, and my motivation is totally down so I give in. But don't even talk to me about bread. Mmm, my mouth waters! Being GF actually helps though, since we can't eat the traditional, easy, "right there" breads. I used to be a "bread-a-holic" but I've found that it's kind of like sugar. When you don't eat it, you don't want it. It's only when you eat it (or even indulge... ooh, I made the best homemade bread the other night... it tasted so *normal*! :D) but it's only when you eat it that you crave it. A terrible, vicious cycle, I know. But my son got one of those cadbury creme eggs, and they didn't even look all that appealing to me! Small little steps towards progress! :)

    I could write sonnets to bread. "How do I love whole wheat with a touch of honey and butter? Let me count the ways." (OK. It would be a crummy sonnet, but you get the idea.)

    Just curious, since sweets and especially baked goods are my particular Achilles heel, how long it took before you began to notice a decline in your cravings. I would love to be able to say no to a cupcake and feel good about the decision.

    MMMM I LOVE BREAD!!!! I definitely had a healthy amount with some fish chowder this weekend... but between the 6 of us the two loaves were gone within 24 hours :) I'm glad the sweet tooth is calming itself! And I'm glad you had a lovely weekend!

    I know what you mean. Went out to dinner on Saturday and got an herbal tea instead of fancy dessert. Nothing felt like it was worth it. But, fresh baked bread is ALWAYS something to be savored. (If it makes you feel any better, its all glucose eventually.) Still, its always good to get control over your devils. I always think about that anti-smoking commercial "It makes a cigarette looked like frozen hamburger instead of juicy steak, and that I can resist." Maybe getting control of your diet and exercise makes you more able to resist other temptations.
