"Sweet" Victory!

Sunday, June 10, 2012

I stopped by the grocery store this afternoon to quickly pick up a few items but mainly to pick up prescriptions in the store pharmacy. I managed to travel down the bakery aisle without buying anything other than half of a loaf of Marathon bread (it has various seeds, shredded carrot, pineapple, made with organic wheat flour, etc.)--it's SO good (If you have a Wegman's, check it out). I also meandered down the snack aisle without putting a single item in the cart. I was hungry at the time, and my blood sugar was dropping, so this would normally present me with a challenge.

I came home, took my blood sugar and enjoyed Asian Salad and a slice of the Marthon bread and a glass of half-caf iced tea with fresh lemon balm.

A week ago, I was in a constant state of craving sweet items, but I find that desire is fading. Dont get me wrong, I LOVE sweets and will probably always have to fight that battle, but I've noticed I don't crave them constantly like I did a week ago. Could it possibly be all of this healty food, water, exercise and sleep I'm showering upon myself? It's the only explanation I can come up with.

Bypassing my "red light" foods at the grocery store today, attention to portion size, all of these better decisions have provided me with such a sweet victory -- and I can' think of a better desert!

    Awesome! Congrats on your victory over sweets!
    I'm getting better at walking right past them too :) And I'm not even eating the snack foods for the rest of the family that are in the house :)
    And yes, it probably IS the exercise, sleep, and better foods. The less you eat the refined, processed sugars, the less you crave them ... nothin' wrong with that!

    I found that once I was diagnosed and got my BSs under more control, I know longer craved chocolate and soda which were my main downfall. I have been successfully keeping my BS under tight control (A1C at diagnosis was 9, last one was 5.1) Great job on your victory!!! You should be very proud of yourself!!! It's the small victories that make up our greater successes!!! You are on your way!!! Congrats!!
