I am a pretty healthy young woman... I exercise regularly, and often vigorously. I love to eat veggies like: beats, asparagus, egg plant, anything veggies you name it and I'll eat it. I can prepare delicious salads, healthy breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. I eat chicken breasts with barely any fat, I eat my quinoa, homemade hummus, etc. On the sad side, I love, and I mean love the sweet treats. Mostly I reach for the baked goods and the chocolaty, rich, savory sweets. I hate it... At some points I will eat the sweets to the point where it's not even making me feel good, but I still eat it anyway because I know it might not be there around later, or that someone will notice and judge me for eating it. That, too, is a problem. I pack on the desserts while no one is watching... When others are around, I tend to stay away from them. I can actually be VERY self disciplined when it comes to sweets in front of crowds. I can say no to a delicious looking, pistachio filled, chocolate fudge cake without even blinking if my peers are around: and that's exactly what I did at work when that cake was around. I CAN do it, but when I'm alone I feel like I bury myself in my own misery of the deadly white powder! Please, help me. I've tried asking others for help. I've tried getting other people involved, but I think even though they know, I am still ashamed and I don't see any progress because I get myself to be alone only to find some way to get a bite of that delicious, mind rattling dessert. As of now, I am trying to reach out to other sources. I want to be beautiful again! Although I know I am right now, too, but I can be much better. I want to look good in my bikinis again, I want to look amazing for my special other half (he looks absolutely incredible) I want to not be so dependent on that sweet torture. I want to take control of my life in regards to the foods I eat!
I have read multiple articles on how sugar is incredibly bad for the body. It causes so many malfunctions within a person that only give rise to tremendous problems later down the road in life. Even reading and trying to be aware of those things does not help me put down that sugary treat. I am afraid, as I read this in an article as well, that I am addicted to sweets in a worse way that an addict is addicted to cocaine...
I envision a person, anyone to be my supporter! To create little games, or challenges for me to follow each day or week. A person who can see my accomplishments and also push me down farther! If there is anyone, please let me know.
