SUGAR ADDICT CONFESSES

One happy recovering sugar addict on her way to a Christmas Party. Forgive the fake Hollywood smile please--we were in a rush and I had to pose quickly. It's good for a chuckle anyway!
I am out of denial. I am a self-confessed sugar addict. It was easy to live in denial for so many years--my entire life to date! You see, I always prided myself on my sweet tooth. Believing it to be the secret to being thin. I can give up any food except sweets. Thus, I thought being a sugar addict actually kept me thin. However, soon I do give up on meals. Soon I am only wanting homemade peanut butter-marshmallow squares and ice cream--nutrition be damned! I gave up on grains--only eating sprouted whole grains and whole grain pasta, brown rice , etc., yet I refused to let go of sugar. If there were no grains in it: i.e. ice cream and my peanut butter-marshmallow squares, then eat away!
Here I am, on a low-sugar diet and loving it. How? Well, I developed adult acne, mood swings and exhaustion and strong hormonal responses during my cycle. I am so sensitive to the sugar high that I start to crave more and ore sugar to keep the high going all day long and soon I am eating nothing but a treat for lunch and a treat after a tiny supper. My nutrition sucked and I was on sugar highs and lows all day long.
Now, I eat protein, dairy, veggies, fruit and feel so much better for it. I have replaced sugar with dark chocolate (85%). Now I substitute the sugar high my a chocolate high. It is much better for me. I don't have insulin rushes and drops. I allow myself 2 squares of 85% chocolate each day along with my healthy meals and unlimited tea ( I am the worlds biggest tea drinker. I drink it without milk or sugar: green, black, oolong,white, hot, iced) Once in a long while I will have a small treat but I make sure it is as low in sugar as possible and if it is full of sugar I only have a small piece after a meal so as to not get an insulin rush.
All is well and as a recovering sugar addict, I've never felt better! I am full and alert all day long and I believe my acne will vanish for good and no more hormonal bloating each month. YAY!

Now, after saying all of that, guess what I'm off to do? That's right! Make Mistaya's Birthday cake. She wants a pumpkin pie/ice cream cake. I made up the recipe and boy oh boy, watch out sugar addicts, this is going to be the best cake ever.
I'll let you know the size of the piece I take after my meal (of course)   ;)

You did very well girl. Only an average slice after supper--even though you wanted so much more because it was the most delicious cake ever!

Does the panel behind you have the caption or title: "non sequitur" (it does not follow...)?
Just a curious cat.

Thank God you are back Johan. Who else will comment on my posts other than myself?
The panel reads: Non sinespe relinquerts
