Hi. My name is Jen and I’m a sugar addict.
I know some people say that jokingly in an attempt to express their love of desserts. I love desserts. But I’m also completely serious.
When you catch yourself standing in a corner, shoveling candy into your face as quickly as you can before anyone will notice (and not just because that means you’ll have to share), that’s a problem. When you are able to sit there and tell yourself that it’s not a good idea to consume more sugar because you’re already starting to feel sick but you are unable to make yourself stop, that’s a problem. When you’re completely aware that the amount of sugar you’re eating is effecting your skin, your stomach, your mood, your anxiety levels, and your ability to sleep at night but you still can’t stop yourself, that’s a problem.
And that’s exactly where I find myself right now. Toxic. Ashamed. Lacking willpower.
That’s also why I’ve decided to go sugar free throughout all of April.
