HERE'S HOW IT HELPED......
-It has forced me to rediscover the wonderful world of fruit. I have eaten so much fruit this past week and not only do they take away my sugar craving, but it makes me happy because Olivia is eating loving it and I seem to have more energy. Yay for fruit!
-Made me realize that I do have some self control. Yay for this one too because I really thought I had none.
-Made me appreciate meals. I was the queen of piecing on sugary stuff all throughout the day and then when meal time came around I was not hungry for the real food, but this last week I’ve really been enjoying my meals (except for a few days, see below) and its made me very happy.
Now I don’t want anyone to think this was any sort of diet. I actually ate more the first couple of days than I normally do to appease my terrible sugar cravings. And I certainly don’t plan on eating no sugar, which would be way too extreme for a person such as myself who dearly loves the sweets. But when you eat brownies for breakfast and ice cream for lunch and a bunch of miscellaneous junk in between, something drastic had to be done for my sake and the sake of my child. I think that this helped. But only time will tell….
Oh also one other thing that made this easier than expected is that I got an awesome case of mastitis so I was in extreme, unbelievable, horrific pain for about three days. Well at least it kept my mind off the sweets, as I had no desire for food. Yes, I was finally weaning Olivia and I get a breast infection. How perfect is that? Just my luck huh?
