Get serious!

Friday, October 18, 2019

I am going to clean the house of added sugar. How it creeps in is my fault. I pick up this candy here or this dessert there. It just sounds and looks good at the time. I am not happy with myself when I eat them. It is a habit learned over many years when I felt deprived and needed to “treat” myself. But giving myself sugar is not treating myself-it is killing me bite by bite! I choose instead to put good and nourishing things into my body because I DESERVE IT!! And because God has given me this body to take care of lovingly.

    Old habits die hard.. but they can be crushed. Having a successful environment is crucial on this journey and it doesn't hurt to have determination, a focused mind and staying consistent. Not an easy road, but making that decision to have a healthy meal, a healthy snack, to stay hydrated, adequately rested, even one good shopping trip at a time... is possible. It takes time but new habits can be formed. Stay strong, be patient and do what you can.

    Just make sure you don't replace it with aspartame or artificial sweeteners. Talk about something that could kill you slowly. A friend of mine got seizures from aspartame.
    She stopped using it and they quit.
    I always read and practice myself...if a food triggers overeating, stay away from it! Tests showed mice/rats were given a choice of cocaine and sugar. More addicted to sugar!!!
    Be strong! But, if you slip up, because we all do....don't be discouraged. Back at it afterwards! emoticon
