I Quit Sugar: Week Three’s Coming Out of the Woods

Things have calmed down considerably. No more rabid animal invading my body. My cravings are now psychological. The comfort of sugar. Or the pick me up when tired. But when I think of a packet of Raspberry White Chocolate cookies, I don’t salivate with desire anymore. I feel the teeniest twinge of feeling ill at the mere idea of all that sugar. Three weeks ago I polished off a pack no problem. Then I felt ill. Now I get echoes of that ill feeling at the thought of sugar. That’s progress.

Rationally I knew I would see a shift in my sweet tooth. It’s weird actually living that change. Out on a girl date, looking at gelato, the various chocolate flavours didn’t call to me. Who am I? It was strange to observe myself not immediately want a double so I could sample two flavours. One was never enough. I did indulge in a small chocolate and cookie gelato. Yes it was delicious. But I wasn’t particularly enthused for it beforehand. And afterwards I didn’t feel the need fore more, like once upon a time I would have. In reality, I could have gone without and not felt deprived. Now that really is making progress!

Let’s see if next week I can turn that progress into a completely sugar free week.
