I promise this will be the last post about sugar! Tomorrow will mark one week that I have gone without sweets. I still use sugar in my coffee etc., so it has not been eliminated from my diet, but I have not had the cookies, cake, desserts that I had been so addicted to.
It has been a good week though. At first I felt "yucky" and could tell that my body was releasing the toxins from my body. Then after that I had renewed energy and just felt good! It seems like I got some confirmation that I was on the right track. First an emai came - not verified, but was from a medical standpoint about the dangers of sugar. It talked about cancer cells feeding off sugar - which I wasn't very concerned about, but very interesting anyway. Then in a conversation at work about a dinner menu, the talk turned to sugar and how damaging it was to the body. Lastly a newsletter from Prevention was on sugar and the damage it can do to your skin! So those were encouragements through the week as I refrained from sweets.
A very thoughtful person with a leftover dessert stopped by! She knew from experience that a home with boys always welcomes food! This is a leftover Milky Way cake from a birthday celebration. The boys loved it! And boy, did it look good! But there are times that to achieve strength...resistance must be used..and it was certainly used in this case and I have not succumbed to the desire to dive into this cake!
