I'm on a no-sugar kick right now. That means, cupcakes, cookies, and candy (the Evil Three C's)--are not entering my belly right now. By avoiding these, I'm hoping my sugar-free belly develops a shrinking feature.

I eat a lot of sugar. I know sugar is not so great for the bod, but it tastes so good!

I usually start off my day with some oatmeal--pre-sugared. Then, I take in some coffee with creamer--and flavored syrup. At the office, I have to just have a bite of that candy my co-worker has at her desk (why do co-workers torture us like this?!). Then, I go home and fantasize about going to get some gelato. Hopefully, I do not have any previously purchased ice cream in my freezer, because if I do, at this point it's gone (why is it so much fun to watch the Biggest Loser while eating ice cream?!).

It can be hard to live life with no sugar. Thank goodness I am doing this by choice, and not by a medical mandate. I can't imagine what it would be like to do birthday parties and holidays and weddings (and probably even funerals) without the ability to partake in the sugar fest.

There is a great verse about sugar-overload I think of often from the bible:

Proverbs 25:16
New International Version (NIV)
16 If you find honey, eat just enough— too much of it, and you will vomit.

How many of us have been there? Some of you were probably there about 3 days ago.

Sugar consumption will probably always be a struggle. It puts me on a high, then it puts me on a low. I'm avoiding it for this minute. So stop parading around in my dreams with cookies and cupcakes!

One day, maybe I'll be able to have a better relationship with this powdery, white, wonderful substance. I hope. I pray.
