I have this thing about sugar. When I decided to lose my excess weight once and for all, I decided to follow a diet plan that required I give up sugar in all its forms. I probably eat a piece of cake about 3 or 4 times a year and have gotten to a point where I don't really crave it. Of course, today is Christmas and I've had two pieces of luscious homemade chocolate cake. I will spend the rest of the day trying to convince myself that I won't wake up in the morning 10 pounds heavier because I indulged in some cake today. Oh, how I miss those days when I ate unconsciously and never really thought or worried about what I ate. Sure, I was 40 pounds heavier but, at least my mind was at peace. Food has become yet another source of angst for me.
