Today marks day 11 on my processed sugar-free journey. Some moments are easier than others… mostly it is still hard. I went to a health food store and purchased a supplement that is supposed to help take away these ridiculous sugar cravings (aka Pink Walrus/Starbucks cravings). I look forward to seeing if it will indeed bring me relief!
There is NO DOUBT that I am being controlled by my cravings… no doubt that I am a sugar addict… no doubt that I needed to do this, sigh. I just hate it though and the fact that my brain is still against me most of the time. Addictions are for real folks! For many of us sugar is no joke! It may not be a fast killer, but sugar is seriously a mind-messing toxic substance!
I know, I know, “moderation is key”… but for some of us… moderating sugar is IMPOSSIBLE! It’s in so much of the foods that main-stream America eats! It’s addictive quality doesn’t help either.
Well, lucky me I’m over 1/3 the way through the month… holding on to see what tomorrow might bring. Greatful to those people who are supporting me, encouraging me and advising me! I truly could not do this without you! Accountability is everything in breaking free of this sugar addiction. Thank you!
