Bye Sugar. It’s been real.

Posted on

So – Day 90 of sugarless or extremely low sugar has finally arrived. Only 3-4 small desserts allowed for special occasions. No Easter Candy, no sweet rolls for breakfast, no sugar in my tea, no candy at all, no sugary drinks of any size. Truthfully, it was like losing a favorite pet after so many years of loving sugar. It was traumatic, nightmares about Hershey’s Kisses on a regular basis. It was similar to giving up cigarettes or alcohol (to me, not as major to those addicted to those two).  Read more here if you like:

I didn’t want to write until for fear of failure. That sugar once again would beat me at my own game. The game of I can do or eat whatever I want in my free world. I don’t like restrictions; I don’t like addictions because they restrict. It was a no-win situation. Like Kirk, I do not believe in no-win situations, so I rigged the game. I tricked my system into thinking that I was not really giving it up completely, which I did not 100% as that is nearly impossible. However, the restrictions are in place and practiced. I hope I can keep strict with myself on a daily basis with these few thoughts: (1) do not eat sugar alone. (2) It will be permissible to eat not occasionally, but rarely and hoping for not more than two times per month.

Some may disagree about the addition concept, i.e., those who are already addicted or predisposed to having cravings for sugar. I had to go with what my body was telling me, which was – HA, try to prove that your bodies molecules are not affected by C12H22O11. How did this blog know to subscript? I’m telling you (those who are still listening and not afraid of the concept of eliminating sugar), I was sick, depressed, withdrawal symptoms existed, like stomach aches. It was like an exorcism. It had to be a nasty habit at the least. I would reach for the sugar carton at work when I was getting my tea, I would pick up a sweet without thinking. I still want to eat tons of sugary stuff, so it’s embedded and may take ten years to stop it from affecting me. We’ll see.

Do I feel better without? I have been energized. Calorie consumption has been cut by about 1/3.  Progress – not perfection, but hoping that the end result will be no insulin or further restrictions. Restrict the culprit, not the person. Love Gin

not day for changing anything, not admitting problem with processed carbon compound C12H22O11. Not addicted to white sugar and anything sweet is not a problem. The food is not bad grammar is not bad. Why do people say that? Wrong and bad all the time. Who cares but them? Who is obsessed with eating or not eating anything? I don’t like eating the same thing every day, but sugar is something I eat in excess day in and day out. It’s like a club, us sugar eaters. Like SA anonymous – hide the candy bar in my desk drawer, sneak a couple of teaspoons of sugar   in my tea and eat that sweet roll from Starbucks in my car so others don’t judge. Why do they judge me? What did I have – 1 Valentine candy, 4- 5 lemon Girl Scout cookies. Yesterday was a different story – 1/2 sleeve of Thin Mints, 1/2 can root beer, Mother’s apricot jello salad (Lois Gruver’s recipe) and CoCo Krispies for bedtime snack. Work to do – can it be done. Can I get rid of my only vice that has cost me teeth, dentist bills and pounds? Sucks – set my mind and do it for a Change.

Ode to Uge

Uge keeps me up to date and motivated to blog bullshit and dispute conspiracy theories.

Ugie works at dispelling drivel of right winging phobes.

If it makes sense, leave it to Uge to expunge any sense, twist, carve, annihilate and obliterate my brain function and replace it with cleaned up, left behind meaningful droppings (a la George Carlin).

Thanks Uge for at least making me think…..
