A Sugar Addicts Struggle To Survive

Whenever I start a diet of any kind, it always starts out the same way. I am super excited to start it, I am optimistic and I don’t feel like anything could stop me. This is it, this is the time I will follow through and I will finally lose that belly. Of course the only thing I lose is momentum and by the end of the next day, sometimes even the first day I give up. Yeah, it’s pretty bad.

What I have come to learn from my constant dieting failures, is that #1 You can always start again, and #2 the longer you go, the easier it gets. I have had some good weeks of eating healthy, but as soon as someone is having a get together, or there is a restaurant date, my hard work goes to shit. I have no self control.

My biggest weakness is sugar. I guess you can say I am somewhat of a candy addict. Sure I like cupcakes, cakes, brownies, pies, and any pastry you throw my way, but that isn’t the think I am craving night and day. What I love is the sticky, sour, sweet, chewy, or gooey sugar filled candy! Any kind, doesn’t matter. I usually cannot go 3-4 days without it. I usually substitute a candy flavored gum to try to ween myself off the stuff, but it isn’t the same.

So after much investigating and thought, I have decided to cut all or almost all of my sugar intake for the next 21 days. I read that it takes 21 days to kick a habit, so I am hoping that after these 3 weeks I can not only improve my health, but kick my crazy candy addiction. This will include all candy,chocolate, other obvious sugar filled foods, and I will also be cutting back on the fruit. I will only have 1 fruit a day, if any. I have sorta been going crazy and eating 2 pints of strawberries a day.

So here goes.. day 1!
