OMG - What have I committed to!!!
So I love learning... It is my favorite thing. I will watch self help, health videos, education videos and more. So I invited my Facebook people to watch Fed Up. Who watched, my mini me! Then she called and said let's do it. Let's make June the month where we conquer this! OK i said, really!!! Don't I know that I am addicted to sugar. EVERYONE knows I am addicted to sugar.
Went out to dinner last week and showed my friends that my dessert would be a tortilla chip covered in sugar. I did really. I put stevia in my water. I put sugar in the pit hole of my avocado. I am Brazilian and sugar is part of EVERY recipe.
I know the problems with sugar. It is really bad for your liver, pancreas, and so many other health issues. It keeps the body acidic and that allows for bugs... This is another entire post for another day.
So tomorrow I will start with the first of my 10 Day challenges that Fed Up asks and go sugar free.
I have a friend who has just given up cigarettes. I feel for her because I know it is hard. She went cold turkey. Some days are harder than others but she has all our support. I know the same will be for me.
So, like the mom... Here is the story. Mom trekked across the country to speak to the prophet and asked him to tell his son to no longer eat sugar. He said absolutely but you must return in two weeks. Seriously she asked, we have just spent three days to get here. His response was "Yes". She returned two weeks later. The boy spent time with the prophet and the prophet told the young man that he should stop eating sugar. The mom returned to him and asked, "Why did you ask us to come back in two weeks?" The prophets response, "Because I had to stop eating sugar." ... So before I can help any one else who wants to stop eating sugar, I guess I too must stop eating sugar.
