All right! Four weeks down! As Iâ€™ve been saying, this â€œsugar thingâ€ was not a walk in the park for me. It was the beginning of a life style change and I am so grateful to have had a partner in it. The moral support provided just by knowing that someone else is struggling alongside you, has been supremely helpful. I highly recommend it.
I definitely still prefer sweet over savory and perhaps that is just my makeup, and I accept that. But there are some changes that have happened over the last four weeks that Iâ€™m very proud of: I no longer crash at 3:00 p.m. , I plan ahead more, I feel better, and while Iâ€™m certainly looking forward to allowing myself a cupcake here soon, Iâ€™m just more mindful about my food choices . That means that Iâ€™m more mindful about my nutrition and thereâ€™s no downside to that.
There are some things in life, you really do have to make yourself do for your own good, and for me, this was one of them. I had two false starts and I even had an outrageous sugar fest the first day I decided to scale it back in rebellion of the very idea! â€”Which was months ago. So, see? Eventually, you will succeed.
If you decide that this change would be beneficial to you, I hope that our bittersweet accounts can serve as a thoughtful what-to-expect guide on your journey to help you succeed.
Because, as Lora has said, victory is sweet.
