I accepted a challenged to eat clean for 30 days starting May 1st. I've tried to do this before. I can remember how I felt. The sugar withdrawal was awful. I had a headache for five days. I was sick to my stomach all the time until the withdrawal symptoms went away. I felt better afterward, but like any other addict, I fell off the wagon.
I know eating clean is what I need to do. I know it would accelerate my weight loss. It would get rid of all the chemicals and junk that are in processed foods. I read a book many years ago called "Sugar Blues". It tells about all the negative effects of sugar. How sugar is poison. I know how bad sugar and white flour are.
My mind does not want to give up all my goodies. But my body is craving something better. I am an exercise queen. I am getting stronger everyday. I love this part of my program. My progress is slow because of my eating habits. But I am so scared about taking this step to eat clean. I have been worrying over it ever since I took the challenge. I can't back down from it. But I'm afraid of failure. Help me people.
