and NO, it's not that white powder! It's the other white powder. otherwise known as... sUgAr!!! flour, too.
Now, keep in mind that this is just my fifth day doing this. Honestly though, I can't believe I have made it this far. Why? Just as the title elicits, I love carbs! Of course, most of the diet books will tell you that if you feed your body sugary carbs, it will naturally start to crave them. It is just a viscous cycle. I know if I cave in and eat a brownie, I am pretty much done for until I gain more control over this sugar habit I have developed. I am not one of those people that is all out against sugar. I don't want to totally remove it forever from my diet. I just need control! Basically ...."My name is Molly, and I am addicted to sugar!"
My daughter said to me the other night when I said I could eat six brownies, " Don't you know....food makes you look better than it tastes, or is it, you look better than food feels... or something like that.." ...LOL
I said, "Do you mean, thin feels better than food tastes."
"Yeah, that's it", she said. She was just trying to be her sweet self and help me out.
It is a process though, and if you have ever tried to give up sugar (or some other product for that matter), you can relate to what I am talking about. Here is a recent scenario. As I was shopping for groceries and passed the cookie samples at the grocery store, I really really wanted one. It's like they called my name... "Molly.... Molly... we know you see us. We know you see our chunky chocolate chips nestled inside our crunchy outer crust. You know you can't deny us..." Damn, you cookies!!! I am proud to say that I did not take one, thank you very much!
Well, thin does feel good. Plus, all those carbs are not good for me. Hopefully I can hang with it. I will keep you posted as to how it goes.
