I've always wanted to try to cut out the bread and sugar but I'm so addicted, it's been REALLY hard. Yesterday was day 1. I was tempted by cake in the copy room, candy on EVERYONE'S desk, pie that I made myself over the weekend and vanilla ice cream that we bought to go with the blueberry pie that I made. I microwaved a banana and put some straight up cinnamon on it after dinner and had that for my dessert. It's almost a mental thing at this point....like the meal isn't over until I've eaten something sweet.
Yesterday was hard because I felt tired for most of the day. I couldn't stop yawning and just wanted some candy to give me a little kick. I feel a little better today and actually notice a difference in my puffy hands and wrists...they have gone down a little and my rings don't feel tight anymore.
Granted, I came off a weekend binge and I also drank wine...a lot of wine...which always makes me puffy so just the lack of alcohol probably helped.
I really feel like there should be a sugar addicts anonymous. I could use a sponsor....especially because temptation is EVERYWHERE!
