It's been one whole week since I indulged in a single delicious morsel of sweetness.
It was hard the first couple days, but I've gotten to the point where I am ok to say no. I'm sure there will be moments when I really want something, but I will wait to face that challenge when the time comes rather than fret about it now.
I know in a previous post about regulating media I mentioned that it is extreme to cut things out completely, but I think I will maintain that stance for some things, but not all. In my case right now, it is best for me to have no sweets whatsoever. I am better able to jumpstart my weight loss goal this way, but more importantly I get to reset my palate. I am probably as close to a treat-o-holic as one can get. It's what gets me through tough days and brings me to my happy place. My threshold for tolerating sweets is much higher than it should be.
I cannot say how long I will go without sweets. I may even indulge on occasion, but for now this is working well.
Not eating sweets doesn't mean I have to feel neglected from enjoying food. Fruit is often a good replacement for me, but I'd like some more ideas.
What do you eat as a more healthy alternative to satisfies your sweet tooth?
