Just joshing! But isn’t Noodles BRAVE?
In other Donkey news, our burro has zapped the sugar problem, now and forever, or until she again finds herself wolfing down chocolate bars in the middle of Whole Foods.
I’m amazed and thrilled to report that I have successfully transitioned off of my biggest addiction: sugar. For the past 6 weeks, I’ve only consumed very small amounts in natural form every 7 days. (I consider being 90 percent off to have kicked it!) What finally pushed me over the edge was a trick my friend Wendy Yalom taught me. Imagine whatever you want to eat – that you know you shouldn’t – with maggots and mold all over it. Then connect your mind to the consequences of eating it (whatever those are), and focus on that intensely for a few minutes. It worked! I feel so much healthier … my skin has gained clarity, my moods are evened out. Life is honestly better without 90 percent of the sugar I was consuming, even the “natural” kind (dates, honey, dark chocolate). 💗 But don’t get me wrong – I know it’s a continuous process to make sure I don’t fall back into the sugar trap, especially when life gets stressful or challenging. Still, 6 weeks off is a huge victory for me. So … Tell me how you’ve kicked your biggest addiction!
Ah, yes. Visualization! Moldy Medjools! It works every time … or does it? Any suggestions for Judy?
