Mind if I join you, at least for a little while?
I have made the realization lately that I am 100% ADDICTED to sugar. I can't eat just a bite. Chocolate, candy, bread, pasta, ect. is all the same to me and after every single meal I eat I crave sugar so bad that I sometimes feel like I would literally shoot the Easter Bunny to get some.
So, here I am. I really want to stop being a slave to sugar (simple carbs) and I realize that it will take some effort to do this. I've struggled with emotional eating and disordered eating for many, many years so I have to be careful because strict diets throw me into a binge cycle so it's a fine line with me. I can't tell myself that I'm on a strict diet and that I can never have a piece of candy again. If I have that restrictive mentality then I'm doomed. I am looking at it as a choice this time. It's not that I CAN'T have something, it's that I'm choosing not to in the name of a healthier lifestyle.
I'm not sure if this makes sense or not, but if ya'll don't mind I think I might hang around here for a while and see how it goes. I love the idea of having some extra support to get through this. I've been back and forth on 3CF for years but never seem to stick. Hopefully I'll still be welcome anyway, LOL.
Make it a great day!
