Is a big step for me. You that know me best are aware of what I am going through and what I am trying to do to improve my life. I have been asked whether or not I am still going to do this blog, considering the title and how I haven't swallowed and ENJOYED a whole slice of real CAKE (containing real sugar, butter, etc.) in YEARS.
The last time I had a whole piece of cake was before I even moved here (2004!). (Yes, my BF at the time bought me a wonderful cake at Jungle Jim's in Fairfield.) The no cake thing might sound a little sad, but... It's because I know I have no regard for portion size, so it is good to stay away from items I know I could polish off in the blink of an eye.
...Which means I can't have sugar in the house anymore. More importantly, no more products that contain HFCS. I think that's where I have been missing the boat completely. Many of the diet foods I have purchased in the past (even though they might be low fat or low calorie comparatively) still contain HFCS. That means even fat free cool whip... which I have come to kinda love on my otherwise sugar free mochas in the morning. Boooo...
I am addicted to sugar, specifically the treats I was raised on as a kid (that I know all the food snobs out there say they don't eat/don't buy/don't like, but I know you are LYING... I saw you in Safeway at midnight when they had a ten for ten on Hostess.)
No more sugar. Now presenting the new cakegrrl, without all the shameless gluttony.
