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.
