I think this will be the first holiday season ever (Halloween-until after Jan. 1st) that I haven't and won't overdose on sugar. It's pretty remarkable how incredibly addicting it is when you think about it-or should I say---it is for me.
True Story: I could eat a 1/2 a bag of Hostess powdered donuts...often more-and not be full :(
I wouldn't even consider that now.
I don't know if I'll ever be stating that I've OVERCOME. At this stage, if I opened up that door again-I'd be right where I was before. I won't be 'dabbling' in refined sugar.
True Story: I haven't lost any lbs. in almost 3 wks! I'm not giving up, and I'm not even all that worried (yet). My sleeping is still wack-o, I haven't exercised lately, I've been sick, and I just feel over-stretched--out of balance, if you know what I mean.
I've lived long enough to know that...this will pass.
True Story: I'll be gone for almost 3 wks caring for family and celebrating Christmas. I will keep in touch. You all have become such an important part of my support system, and my self-care. I've also started to think about my "crazy-A food" (my daugther's teasing comment) that I will bring with me: special chocolate, Stevia, Chia seeds, etc.
They have a Trader Joe's close by, so I can get what I need. I know I need to be proactive if I want to keep focused. It's easy for me to lose myself when I'm with family, so I just need to be aware.
I hope you all have a good day-and thanks for checking in.
