Turns out, I’m a sugar addict.
I’m not the only one in this boat I’m sure, but it was confirmed today when I got my weekly newsletter from Gwyneth Paltrow’s website, Goop. The article is aptly names Overcoming Sugar Addiction. This is what I decided I needed to do when this last weekend mom and I went shopping for and we picked up a lovely top for my holiday party. To get the full picture I tried on some pants and…hmm. So here I am starting my 4th day of “Off sugar”. Wow, really not easy. Monday was especially hard and under an incredible amount of stress yesterday had candy in had and I firmly told myself no and put it back. That was HUGE! As I sat here this morning I opened my email to find help, much needed help actually. Her short introduction leads to the article by Dr. Frank Lipman who talks about not only his own personal struggle with sugar addiction but ways in which to get yourself off of sugar or at least to a place where you can control your sugar intake.
