Roberta Morris Zukauskas Posted October 19, 2012 Share Posted October 19, 2012 Today I feel like I am an alcoholic in recovery, though with me it's sugar...a coworker brought in mini-cupcakes for Halloween. I looked at them, even imagined what it would taste like to have "just one" - then realized that i wouldn't have "just one". I would grab one or two everytime I passed that table - and I pass that table a LOT during the work day. I stopped and thought about how comfortably full I was from my breakfast (eggs, chicken, canteloupe) and about how I would binge, and I was able to stay away without a lot of trouble. For me, thinking about "am I full?" is key to not eating these types of things. Whole 30 works for me because I just can't control myself around those types of treats. It is either binge or absinence for me. This may change later, but I think I will keep the "no sugar treats" rule for a while, even after my Whole 30. Yet another self-revelation...
