I'm an Addict.

I'm an addict. And I think it's time to address it.

I am addicted.. to sugar.

I cannot stop eating it. Even though I know it isn't healthy that doesn't stop me from eating an entire bag of chocolate chips in a week or a whole pack of Starburst candies in a day (the yellows are favorite.)

I have always loved candy. Some of my favorite memories as a child are riding my bike down to Mireider's store with a handful of change to buy pieces of Mary Jane chews, packs of Mallo cups and cups of red Slush Puppy drinks. But, I wouldn't say I was addicted to it back then.

However, as of late, I cannot stop eating it. I crave it. I love it. I look forward to it. I don't discriminate against candy either, I love it all. Those left over black jelly beans from Easter? Sure! I'll finish those. Circus peanuts? Why not! Necco wafers? LOVE them.

I now understand why parents try to limit the sugar intake of their children because it is addicting. I have never craved sugar before, but now I can't walk past a bowl of candy without scooping up a handful. Also, I VERY RARELY drink soda, I mean like 5 times a year, if that, but recently I bought a Diet Coke and since then.. I have been craving that too. WHAT GIVES?!

I have once gotten so desperate for candy that I ended up eating sprinkles I found in the back of a kitchen cabinet.

Just last night I ate a couple life saver lollipops, tootsie roll fruit rolls, sour gummy rings, and a vanilla cream cookie... see?! I told you I had a problem! The next problem is going to be my jeans when they won't fit over my jiggly ass. I think I'm one Hershey Kiss away from needing an intervention.

I wanted to try the Advocare Herbal cleanse before the Holiday's to clean out my sugar poisoned body and get a handle back on my diet but I'm skeptical to try a cleanse. Do they really work? Does anyone have experience with Advocare and/or cleanses?

  1. I have had SUCH a sweet tooth lately. I just can't help it! And I will ALWAYS blame it on my time of the month. Always.

  2. I'm the same way with candy. I could skip some baked goods and head straight for the candy. My goal is to have a candy bar at my wedding (that doesn't exist yet). I'm also like that with carbs. I could eat a whole bowl of pasta and then follow it with a loaf of Italian bread and then have a bagel with cream cheese later on. It's sick! But so good. & don't even get my started on the soda. I crave it all the time. It's all a problem.

    And I've had a couple friends do the Advocare stuff and they highly recommend it. One friend is now an advocare seller or whatever haha she loved it so much she now sells their products.

  3. I have battled a sweet tooth forever. I am pretty sure i'm addicted to sugar. I have cut down on the soda by not buying it for the house but I can't cut it out 100%.
