Sugar: The Bitter Truth

Remember when I told you that I would probably have to pray myself through certain situations concerning my LIVIT!! Well last week I had a few down days and spent most of the day talking to God and asking him how in the world will I be able to do this LIVIT for the rest of my life. Some days seem so much harder than others. So guess what happens??? I am a member of a fungus yahoo group. Yes there is even a yahoo group of people on the same LIVIT. I stumbled upon this group by accident. I was reading some other website and saw it and was shocked to see that it was exactly the same LIVIT. So I know God sent me to this group, cause he knew I needed all the help I could get. So anyway, this lady post this video link about suger for everyone to listen. That was exactly what I was struggling with a few days before. Sweets are my biggest down fall in life. I am totally addicted to cakes, pies, candy. Anything sweet, I will pop into my mouth without much thinking involved. Well on this LIVIT, I can have 0 sugar. It has been the hardest part of the LIVIT so far. Now after listening to this video, I am totally thinking in a new more positive way. Not that I plan to give up sweets for the rest of my life, cause that would be just insane, but after listening to this video, I will be way more picky about the things I pop into my mouth. Listen to the video and you will see why I have had a change of heart when it comes to sugar. Thank you God for always being there for me!!! You continuously light my path when it is dark!!!!

What a challenge - giving up sugar. When my daughter was diagnosed as diabetic, we had to radically change our diet, but now have minimal sugar which I'm sure is healthier. Also, we've grown to love some of the dessert recipes that we've discovered over the years.
