Girl vs. Sugar

Sugar, for me, is like a little demon - a monster lurking around every corner.  As I said in an earlier post, there is no doubt in my mind that I am completely addicted to sugar.  I've been away from my home in Dallas for a little over 10 weeks.  Over the past three days, while driving from Oregon to Texas with my husband, I ingested way too much sugar.  Now that I'm home, its time to end my binge. I began this weight loss journey while traveling and now that I'm home, I'm ready to put my nose to the grindstone. 

I came home to a clean empty fridge, which is a boon because I don't have any extra crap lying around my house to munch on.  Anything I bring in the house from here on out is my responsibility.  I went to Whole Foods last night and bought 200 dollars worth of fruits, veggies and whole grain products.  This morning, I'm back on track with an all fruit breakfast and a glass of water the size of my head.  It's good to be home.  And Sugar, if you're listening, you don't scare me.

sugar is my nemesis too.
it is way easier for me to abstain than to control/regulate.
when i want something sweet -- when it's staring me down, i just calmly say "i don't eat that anymore" and walk away.
(sometimes easier said than done but it works for the most part!!)

That photograph is just awesomeness. : ) For me, it isn't sweets so much, but I totally cave to bread, cheese, pasta, salty chippy things and...wine! I'm proud of you for keeping the faith - you can do it!
