The Best Things in Life are Sugar-Free.

Tonight I was tempted to eat chocolate brownies and European chocolates during dessert. My host said, “These are worth falling off the wagon for…”
My response was, “I can’t. A lot of people are counting on me.”
Kind of funny, but in that moment it hit me that my quitting sugar is not just about me. Had I caved and ate “just a little chocolate,” not only would I feel terrible because of the sugar, but also because people could lose faith.
THANK YOU for visiting and reading! Knowing that I have people who believe in me (and believe me) helps more than you can know. Again, thanks.

That’s the #1 rule for successfully quitting sugar.

My housemate answered the front door today (Sunday) and then called out, “Do we want to buy some Girl Scout Cookies?!”
My immediate reaction was to want to jump up and place an order for eight boxes…but I let them go without an order.
Girl Scout cookies seem so “special” because you can only get them once a year—but they’re just sweet evil.
The problem is that, somewhow deep inside, I know I’ll eat them again.

That’s my mother’s philosophy. Her words! She’s a life-long sugar addict.
As much as I try giving her books, sending her statistics, and even living as an example, nothing has swayed her from eating sweets.
It would make me happy if she quit for a month because she’s never been off long enough to feel the effects of being sugar free. She can’t do it.
She can’t do it because she doesn’t want to.
I can’t change everyone. I can’t change anyone, in fact. But sometimes I can influence someone to start doing something they were already thinking about doing.
And, at least, I can take care of myself.

You love the sweets, and you are sweet.
I’m developing a theory, based on observation, that sweet loving people (who can’t control their sugar intake) are sweet people in general. And by being sweet I mean that you often get taken advantage of, maybe get pushed around a bit, or feel like people think you’re a push-over.
Is there a connection? What do you think?
