My name is Kyrsten and I am addicted to...

Hello, my name is Kyrsten, and I am addicted to flour and sugar.
These are the words that I’ve finally come to accept.
I have been dieting for most of my life and I am finally at a point where I realize I can’t “diet” anymore. I have a pattern of starting a plan (be it Weight Watchers, Atkins, calorie counting, etc) and I always fall off the bandwagon after a few days, though sometimes I’m able to keep at it a week or two.
I always promise Jacob, “Hunnie, this is it. This is the plan I know I can stick to. I am going to be healthy and we can start our real life together.” Happily ever after, right? Not so much.
I am addicted to sugar. I am addicted to flour. Just like an alcoholic is addicted to alcohol. I can’t practice moderation- I just go off the deep end. It is inevitable.
I have decided the only way for me to be set free from this “prison” I’ve kept myself captive in for so long- I need to do away with life as I’ve known it. I have to surrender my favorite foods and lay them on the altar for God. He is the only One who knows how to set me free, and this is the way. I know it.
So, on May 1st (payday and just sounds like a great day to start my new life) I am going to do away with cake, candy, soda, French bread, pasta… all the things that have been killing me. I am going to exchange it all for LIFE by adapting to CLEAN EATING!!!!!
I intend on beginning to vlog daily again. This time it really is going to be different. I am dedicated and I’ve made a promise to my Maker.
I can do this.
