I want candy

In conjunction with giving up Dr. Pepper, I am trying to give up candy/sweets/junk food. Well, not give up entirely. Just eat it less. (I've been really good about it too. I haven't had anything since the day I quit DP.) I don't eat things like that everyday, but I would say that I do at least two or three times a week. I've given it before, I know I can do it again. I'm just having a really hard time wanting to do it this time around. Especially without my sweet, precious Dr. Pepper to fall back on.

I usually keep some sweet staples around the house, but since swearing off, I haven't been buying my usual stuff. Yesterday, I was craving something sweet really badly. I had and ah ha moment and decided to make some chocolate chip cookies. I always have chocolate chips around and I convinced my sugar deprived brain that there was a long lost bag of them at the back of the cupboard. I must have rooted around in there for about 15 minutes and I never found that mystery bag of chips. I started to feel really desperate. I didn't know what I was going to do. I kind of gave up and began wandering the house to try and take my mind off it when I came upon the most glorious site I have ever seen. It was a forgotten Valentine's Day treat bag of one of my kids. It was like a light from heaven was shining down upon it. I immediately grabbed it and started digging around. At the very bottom of the bag I found one fun size Snickers and one fun size Twix. I ripped them open and shoved them into my mouth. They were the most glorious things I have ever tasted in my whole entire life. I heard the Hallelujah Chorus as I was eating them. A total meltdown was avoided and all was good and right in my world at that moment.

I don't know what I'll do if this happens again. What I ate were the only good things left in the bag. I shudder to think about it.

P.S. Giving up sodas and sugar at the same time.....are you insane?!?! ;-0

I hate it when I have to wander around wanting something like that. I am so glad you found something. Too bad you can't buy just one fun size candy bar to keep around.

One of my favorite treats are the Weight Watcher's desserts. They are really, really good, and not as fattening. You should try them.

I too have a major sweet tooth.

I have been there wandering around the house searching and searching and then, bam! Manna from heaven in the form of sugar that my kids have forgotten.

I felt the same last night! So I ate a graham cracker.... NOT the same.

Erin said...

I have days like this. Heck, what am I talking about? Every day is like this!

Wow, you're off DP and sugar at the same time?! Yikes! I buy sugar free candy every time I decide to go off sugar. It's not as good but sometimes you just NEED something sweet!

Did you lick the wrappers too? Cuz, I would have!!

Christa said...

You bet your butt I licked, smelled, hugged, kissed and carried those wrappers around for a long time.

I can't believe you're trying to give up Dr. Pepper AND candy at the same time! There's no way I could live without chocolate! I always have some around the house. I'm glad you were able to find some chocolate to satisfy your craving!
