Day Six Down - 8 to go!! What I've learned so far....
Saturday, August 10, 2013
It's truly amazing what we humans can do when we are determined and have wonderful support.
Never did I think I could go 6 days without sugar, bread, fruit, or starches. Honestly, I thought I'd probably do a couple of days and then ditch it. Before BLC I couldn't have done it, but with the support of my Spark Friends and the enormous amount of literature and information on this site. I have not even tasted one bite of any of these...none.
I am astonished at my ability to say NO mainly to myself. In the past I have made every excuse there is...I've told myself lies to satisfy that SUGAR demon. I have eaten to the point of making myself sick....so when it came to this challenge I really didn't know if I had it in me. Because I was always cheating myself.
But now I know I can beat the SUGAR demon and the "obesity" BMI by returning to the basics of eating. Fruits, veggies, lean protein, nut/seeds, low fat dairy.
I remember when I was a little girl and there was very little processed or mass produced food like it is now. We ate fresh, my mom or grandmas made everything from scratch, nothing came out of a box. It was almost as if that was forbidden. Well, that forbidden food has become a cancer and/or drug today.
I am beating this addiction one meal at a time, one day at a time...
(I have to blog about this to journal my daily challenge...thank you for reading. I am very tired and I know this doesn't flow like it should).
