Two or three weeks ago, I wrote that I was going to cut sugar out of my diet. I did...for a few days. I continued to ponder it and decrease my daily sugar intake, but I didn't continue to cut it out completely. I like sugar!
Almost two weeks ago, I was among friends and our kids. The occasion was a beautiful day and a picnic at one friend's house. The other gals had the discipline to forgo half of an Eskimo Pie for dessert. I didn't. I never buy Eskimo Pies. They were a treat to me. So, I chose to have half of one as my dessert for the day. I felt bad because my friends and I had been discussing forgoing sugar... And there I was eating half an Eskimo Pie! Ay Ay Ay!
After talking with my husband, I've been trying to eat sugar in moderation. If I cut it out completely, I am afraid I will crave it all the more. If I'm able to choose a dish that has less sugar in it, I am. I've cut back the sugar in my coffee and I still drink it before anything sweet in the morning--even yogurt. I've also been taking acidophilus pills because a friend said she had greater success with those than with eating yogurt.
So, that's me. I needed to confess to you that sugar is a weakness of mine--but I'm trying. I respect my friends who are much stronger than me and were able to forgo the Eskimo Pies!
