Hello, my name is Julia and I am a sweetaholic…there I said it…I feel better now. I’m not trying to make light of those people who have drug and alcohol addictions…believe me I’ve lived with people who have had both, and I know that it is a serious and horrible situation for the addict and their loved ones. However I do believe that I am addicted to sugar, and that it has a negative impact on my health. Anyone who knows me in person, knows that I need to lose weight…a lot of weight. More than that though I need to get healthy…and I think the first thing I should do is cut out the sugar.
It is not going to be easy, because frankly, sugar is not an ingredient for me…it’s a food group. Every morning I have at least two cups of tea with my breakfast…that tea includes loads of sugar. It is accompanied by toast with, jam of course…and none of that low sugar jam either. As the day progresses everything that I eat seems to have sugar in it. What I do have to decide, is whether it is better to go cold turkey, or gradually reduce it…am I going to be jonesin for a hit of the white stuff at two o’clock? Am I going to be saying to Bernice, “give me my sugar or the dachshund gets it.” Well, let me know if anyone else has tried to eliminate something from their diet…that is, if you lived to tell the tale, or you don’t risk imprisonment for the stuff you did while detoxing 🙂
God Bless, Julia
