Seriously? - Just a smile!

Thursday, December 11, 2014

I found this comment posted by a Sparkpeople member - referring to an article on how to handle sugar carvings - and just wanted to share it with all of you. Sometimes we just need to smile!

"When a craving strikes, try going for a walk or simply drinking a glass of water" ---

Seriously?

I can't stand it when I look for answers on how to help my sugar addiction and I get advice like THAT. I'm sorry, but when I want chocolate and I want SWEETS, I do NOT want a glass of freaking water or to go for a walk!

So annoying.

    Some blog I read was talking about how she drinks some really strong kombucha everytime she has a sugar craving. The kombucha probably has a little sugar in it, but I think the advice is more generally about filling your belly with something or occupying your mind with something that's not sugar. It's tricky.

    I agree with you, Gwen. In fact, I've been at maintenance for several years now, and even while I was actively losing 80 lbs., I allowed myself those indulgences. For me (and we're probably all a little different in this respect), being set back for a brief period of time by indulging in a planned "sweets excursion," say, got me to where I wanted to go.

    Maybe it's a little different for all of us, but even now, you can bet I get into sweets, though only on planned days. It's a strategy that's worked well for me. You'll find what works well for you, too! emoticon
