Changing a Limiting Belief

I am getting a general sense that it is hard to give up sugar. I have to wonder if giving up heroine and tobacco is easier because there isn't heroine and tobacco in almost everything we eat. (unless they have changed the names in the ingredients). Even other foods made with white flour turn to sugar as soon as we eat it. We can't seem to run or hide from sugar, and that is probably why the addiction is so powerful. It is also suggested that the sugar substitutes are difficult because they increase the craving for sugar, increase the amount of foods eaten, and make the natural sugars in fruit less appealing.

I also have come to realize that it is my beliefs about sugar that play a big role. Let's face it, if I truly believe that life isn't worth living without sugar (which, up until now I have believed), then no amount of will power will stop me because I will either give in, live a dull existence, or have to end my life. It is much easier to eat a cookie.

P.S. Just so you know, I figured out how to add this cute embellishment all on my own. And you didn't believe in miracles.

I love the new look!

I just bought some agave nectar to try in quick breads, I might branch out to making cookies with them. It is supposed to be better than sugar. I will let you know what I think.

Gee thanks Beth. I have some of that agave nectar. I do like it. Court has a recipe book for it.
