Well I want to talk about a “small” change I made that became a big healthy change in the end, and it’s a change that’s still progressing.
I used to be totally addicted to sugar. So I decided one day to limit the amount of sugar I eat per day. I started out the rule that I can only eat 4 sugar items per day. The smallest piece of candy would count as a sugar item or the biggest slice of cake would count as a sugar item.
It went well, so I decided eventually only 2 pieces. I noticed eventually that even when I gave myself permission to eat more candies. I didn’t feel the need to.
Eventually I decided to challenge myself and said “Ok no more sugar treats at all for at least 3 months.” I am now past 2 months, and giving up sugar entirely has been extremely easy.
I would like to say that I have in fact been losing weight, and I feel better now.
