Well, I made it! What I thought was impossible became possible! I thought there was no way I could live without sugar, no way! My family thought I was crazy, co-workers would look at me and say "why are you doing this to yourself?" I would answer, "because I am tired of feeling like crap!" I did not realize the side effects of sugar! I knew when I would consume a pop and candy bar mid-afternoon I would feel groggy and tired, but I didn't have sense enough to realize the culprit was the sugar. The first week was easy; I even made my husband an apple pie and didn't take one bite. About day eight, the cravings came. I wanted ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, a milkshake, anything. I continued to eat fruits and nuts and eventually the cravings were no more. I learned to read lables, especially ingredients. If I can't pronounce the ingredient, I don't want to consume it. I lost two pounds, I have energy and feel great! I have suffered from cystic acne for YEARS; my face has immensely improved. I still have a few spots but nothing like the painful, huge knots I normally have. My husband and kids are now on board with healthy eating, which is a huge help to have their support. I am now very anti-sugar/anti-processed foods . I drive by fast food places and can't believe I actually ate the food that is offered on the menu (I still go to Subway, which is way better than McDonalds). I can't see myself going back to enjoying junk food. Yeah, I am sure I will eat a piece of cake or a few peanut butter M&M's once in a while, but not as a snack. Now, I am 100% dedicated to living a healthy living for my family and I.
