Didn't eat sugar over stress

Friday, September 21, 2012

A few days in and I had so many things to do at work that time escaped me. I was stressing and got that "hunger" where I HAVE TO have something NOW and it has always been something sweet or chocolate. Then I remembered that these foods don't make the stress go away. It may even make it worse. It's just giving food, well a non food really, something to do that it was never meant to do. Food is meant to nourish, not quell emotions. It took some time to calm down but I was so proud that I didn't start pounding the sweets because in the past once I thought of them, I had to have them and I wasn't able to find any way to stop myself. God, I wish more than anything that I can continue to have this strength to remember this and finally free my addiction. I want health and freedom and more joy in life : ).
