I am still human…

Posted on Updated on


Today, I just wanted some candy, cookies, and bad sugar, so I went and bought it. it cost me $10.50.


What I didn’t post is the $80 dollar worth of groceries I had purchased earlier that was full of greens, fresh fruit, and veggies. This post is my kryptonite and proof my journey is not perfect, or without trials. I haven’t wanted to binge like this for a while. I waited to post this picture, because I wanted to see how far would I go. I am happy to say, I didn’t eat it all, but I had some.

We had a conversation about the need to ‘break up’ with sugar or that candy bar, because it doesn’t love you. Well that’s so true; it’s not good for you. but why must it be so darn good?!

In truth, will I never eat any sugar again? No. I am going to indulge every now again. However, I am learning the importance of a great balance. Because of my need for sugar, I can’t do good or okay, it has to be great effort. So, yes, I had some sugar tonight, but I am far from over it or out of it. In addition to that, if this knocks me off my lifestyle change, then am I am just ‘dieting’, or changing the course of my life? I am certain that I am changing my life.

For dinner, it’s a green salad, with grilled chicken breast, full of veggies. :Life is good and okay. I just wanted some sugar today. Smily

    I need to be more like this when I mess up. I have been “off” for probably 3 weeks now, and I need to get centered around my goals again! I love reading about other people successfully recovering from a slip up, it helps so much

      Come on! come on! You can do it! Just find your center. I am happy to report that I still didn’t drink all of that soda and most of the candy. I haven’t eaten anymore than what was missing in the picture. In other words, the picture still looks the same. LOL Whoot whoot!! 🙂

        It looked African to me. My hubby is from the other side of the continent 🙂
