Most of the days, I've been positive and patient. Today, I am ANGRY and FRUSTRATED and IRRITATED - mostly at myself.

WHY, WHY, WHY, WHY, WHY - is it still so hard?
Even though I have been carefully eating a balanced diet, trying to get more proteins and fruits/veggies, whole grains, and exercising/taking rest days, sleeping enough, etc. WHY do I still feel the urge, no - COMPULSION - to eat dessert after every meal?

I've tried all the tricks - water, brushing teeth, keeping fingers/mind occupied. The only thing I haven't tried is stepping out for a walk - too much going on today. Despite everything that I've been doing - OH NO, I'm still craving something sweet - ice-cream, actually. Mint chocolate chip, to be precise. I'm scared that I'll end up eating three bowls full though. I'm just tired of FEELING the NEED to eat sweets.

    I should've went to your blog before I went out to pick sweets at the local Target over here. I am not a huge chocolate fan but I like red vines & tic tacs. They seem to keep me pretty busy but lately I have been buying the shortbread cookies. They are so good so I got to get home & do some cardio to burn off some of this sugar.....YIKES! I am feeling though, if I don't have sweets then I will chew on some gum while sipping water. It works most of the time...

    God bless,

    Sugar is addictive. Really. Look it up. It is also one of the worst things you can put in your body. You have said you have tried everything, so I sympathize. Good Job on eating a balanced diet, I hope you have been able to find time to move every day for at least 10 minutes a few times a day.

    I can only recommend keeping sweets out of the house, packing your food if you leave the house, and making sure you do NOT have spare change if you are going someplace that has vending machines. Remember - the manufacturers of those foods are committed to keeping you addicted to their crap so they can continue to make money off of you. You can vote with your money to tell them NO - I'M WORTH MORE ALIVE & HEALTHY THAN DEAD OR SICK!!!

    Be strong - you are worth it!
