Now, nine years later with a husband who loves "cupcakes and candy", as his mom teases him, and two boys that love treats, I have struggled with being sugar-free. Nine years ago it was a lot easier, I just didn't buy things that tempted me. The hard thing now is I feel like I am cheating my boys of a good childhood if I don't make the occasional chocolate chip cookie. Growing up, my mom or one of my sisters would make them every Sunday.
So, the reason for this post is this: I am publically stating my goal of being sugar-free, knowing this will help me fulfil it. Starting today, June 1st, I am cutting sugar out of my life for three months (June-August). I may even go longer, but if I give myself an end date instead of saying I will cut it out forever, I think I can manage better.
Wish me luck! I will keep you posted!
