I am addicted to sugar. Totally addicted. I would happily eat a piece of chocolate cake for breakfast, half a batch of cookies for lunch and a few slices of pie for dinner. I've been perplexed as to why my running hasn't been paying off in shed pounds. The answer is simply my addiction. My body loves to maintain a very healthy weight (healthy as in hefty) and so it compensates--when I burn 300 calories running, I simply have to have a treat to balance myself out. My body doesn't like being a loser!
Simply trying to limit sugar has not been working. I'm terribly good at making excuses and exceptionally good at making treats. So I decided to go off completely. I also informed Noah that he would be doing the same. The one who lasts the longest gets $50 and a smaller waistline.
It's been almost two weeks since the competition started.
Sugar, you are no longer my friend.
