sugar and non beneficial carb addiction
Monday, January 16, 2012
I think that I have a serious addiction to sugar and carbs. I'm being totally serious. I mean no disrespect to those who suffer from other addictions like drugs or alcohol, nor do I by any means want to imply that my struggle is even on par with what others may face but I find that when I stay away from sugar and carbs, (in the form of white bread, pasta, pastries, cookies, etc.) I lose weight and I feel better.
But once I cave I feel the pull and cravings start. And if I give in, it takes several days to get back on track. My mind just goes blank and I blindly eat everything and anything. I feel like if I allow myself a bit everyday I am fine for a day or two then the pull is so great it almost hurts! I don't get it. I haven't figured out yet how to find that balance and overcome the pull of sugar and non beneficial carbs. Today I'm trying to stay busy and stay out of the kitchen! So far so good, but I'm craving stuff badly right now, and I'm really afraid that if I have anything sugary or carby that I won't be able to control it. I'm such a flippin wimp. It's just food! How can it have such a grip!? UGH!
