I am in uncharted territory when it comes to my relationship with desserts. I am continuing with the no desserts for now – (with a rare exception). The NO decision continues to be easier every day. But this time, I feel less sorry for myself in that I need to make this change long term. That’s different.
At least it’s a no-brainer that reducing or eliminating sweets and a significant reduction in sugar is beneficial to one’s health.
Change is hard but it seems that it is not impossible and the longer this goes on, new habits are being formed. Saying no to the gourmet cookie yesterday without feeling sorry for myself felt like a victory.
“How to not become a diabetic” classes start on January 30th. Eight weeks of learning how to prevent this condition in my future – so I hope I learn something helpful.
