Starting tomorrow, August 1, 2012, for 30 days, I am not going to eat any desserts, no candy (which I haven’t but a very few times since the first of the year 2012), no donuts, no pudding, no cake, no ice cream, no cookies, nothing that is considered a dessert-like snack. However, I am not going to change the way I enjoy my coffee (with lots of sweetener), the only exception. Neither am I going to worry about the sugar content in the other non-dessert foods I eat.
I started the year with a “no candy” resolution and did really well. But … and this is a BIG BUTT, both figuratively and literally … I replaced candy, lots of ice cream, and lots of pies and cakes and cookies, probably extending my calorie intake more than I would have had I continued to eat candy. My butt has certainly extended!
So, I’m going to go without any kind of dessert for 30 days.
Anyone want to join me? LET’S DO IT! Whoever does, let’s get together after 30 days and compare notes: how much weight we lost, how we feel, and some other personal pleasantries of exchange; in other words, let’s have a party where only those who have gone without are invited. :-)
