My Biggest Obstacle

Friday, January 21, 2011

Okay, this is hard... and it is my first ever blog, although I've tried a couple times in the past. I need to write about a goal that is REALLY hard for me to attain. That would be the removal of processed sugar from my diet. I can tell by the way I react to it that it is an addiction! I hate that it has so much power over me. For periods of time I'm able to leave it completely alone, but then I take a little bit... just one cookie and the next thing I know all the cookies are gone! Most of the time I'm pretty successful at making sure I'm not left alone with those darn temptations, but this time of year is full of detours! I was proud to make it through December only gaining two pounds that I was able to remove quickly... Then the January birthdays and I really messed up earlier this week. I really want to get past the revolving two or three pounds I've been struggling with for the last couple months and back on the road to success! Starting right now!

    I know about the sugar thing. Its very addictive. I keep tying to tell myself that its like drugs...and you dont do drugs. One cookie leads me to ALL cookies...so i just need to not start.
