Discovery (Re)

I should know better than to set myself up with a "not going to" resolution type of thing.

Especially when it comes to sweets.

My sweet, sweet, sweets.

I tried the idea of "no sugar before 11" but what I found, two days in to the work week, was that come 11 o'clock, there I'd be stuffing my face with all the candy, chocolate, sugar, sweet, whatever I could find. It was bad.

So bad that I figured I wasn't doing myself any favours and was ending up with just as much or even more sugar than I was saving myself.

There's something manageable I can do when I tell myself I *will* do something every day and when I give myself a goal that's reachable, but when it's difficult and I'm taking something away? No good.

So I've re-discovered that I'm not great with New Year's resolutions. I'm just good at being stubborn.

In a good way.

I guess what I'm saying is that I'm better at doing something than at not doing something.

Can anyone tell if I'm making sense? I just had a handful of candy and my mind's a bit blurry.

I used to have a wicked sweet tooth and then I did an anti-Candida "diet" - I didn't do the hard core version but I seriously cut back and for the most part I've kicked the want/need for sugar. I am not suggesting that's the source - but I can tell you that candy will make you sick if you do it - that gross feeling alone was what helped me.

But if you can do moderation - why not have a daily sweet?

Tell youself you'll be putting yourself at risk of having type 2 diabetis if you continue. Or might end up with dentures by the time your 40 if you dont cut back. ;-)

Or just lay off the sweets and indulge one day a week. Then it's more of a reward.

It's a fighting battle for me too, altho' I will eat fruit to satisfy my sweet as much as I will eat candy. Try Gum?

I don't think I could pick just one favourite Duffy, but Skittles are up there. And chocolate is way way up there! ;) said...

I'm sure I should do that SnP, and I'm sure I would feel a lot better. I'm just not brave enough at the moment.

Yeah, I'm keeping an eye on that for sure JS. And I brush me teethses lots! ;)

Thief Kas! And yes, I've found gum in the morning can help a bit and a nice apple mid-morning is quite tasty :)

As a fellow sugar lover I can totally relate. I cant have anything sweet within arms reach and not eat ALL of it. :( And I can see how it would be like the whole "don't think about an elephant" type of thing...all it does is make you think about the elephant!
