There is more shelf space used in grocery stores for storing soda and sugary juice than there is for bottled water or healthy drinks. We have to change the system by changing ourselves first. I used to be so addicted to sugar I would delevope these stomach pains that were literally so bad I would be kicking the wall screaming in pain, crying, begging for it to end. My hair started falling out and was so thin and dry I couldn't do anything with it, my nails had dark patches under them from nutrient deficiency, and my sleep was horrible. The more I consumed the more I wanted to consume. Sugar sends a reward signal to the brain when it hits our tongue telling us mmm that's good...have more. We cannot allow it to control us. Biology may set off those reward signals...but sugar is not a reward in reality...it's a hinderence. We have to be willing to give up what weights us down the most. I used to never drink water...only pepsi. Now...all I drink is water or a morning coffee. You CAN overcome your addiction to sugar. You CAN own up to the bullshit story you tell yourself and others that you have it under control when you really need help and support. Don't let those bullshit thoughts dictate how your goals. I used to tell people "I don't know why I gain weight...I eat like a bird." I was lying to myself and others. Or I would blame ALL my weight on medications when yes medications make you gain weight but not as much as I personally was responsible for. It's as if I had a free excuse pass just because my medications made gain 10lbs. There is no free pass...there is only the fight for freedom. I do not struggle with sugar addiction any longer. I don't have stomach pain, my hair grows more now especially thanks to the nutrients in my daily Shakeology, my nails are beautiful and strong, I don't feel irritated all the time, my heart palpatations are gone, and my sleep improved substantially. Life DOES get better when you treat yourself better and stop allowing the food to control you...you take control. You know you can. Don't convince yourself you are too weak or this is as good as it gets...no...it gets better I can promise you that with love and positive support.
Fighting chronic pain was my #1 motivation for losing weight and following a nutricional plan. I can honestly say now I am off 15 different medications because of my focus group. I used to have upwards of 35 symptoms. Fibromyalgia is no joke, it's one of the most painful illnesses one can suffer from. And I suffered for a long time. Once upon a time I walk with a cane at 280 lb, I had a sugar addiction, I had mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, irritability, the inability to think clearly. I was a very negative person with no ambition, no hope and very suicidal ready to end my life any moment. I couldn't handle the stress. I didn't know how to call my brain but I didn't know that I was also putting things into my body that were triggering pain not allowing me to Clarity to think through and breathe and really learn what it was that I needed to do to not only get better physically but mentally. I want to help other people who were like me. Who are like me, I still struggle everyday it is not perfect. I still have Flair updates the only difference is now I might have one flare up a month. I can wash my hair now without it hurting. I'm not as sensitive to temperature. I can go to the bathroom without it hurting. My muscle pain is nearly gone. I don't have nerve damage. I healed from kidney failure. I had 19% kidney function. I was almost headed out the door. My blood pressure was so high it would shock the doctors every time they would check. I was in and out of the hospital or the doctor's office anywhere from 4 to 5 times a month. I would have to be sent to the emergency room for pain so bad morphine didn't even take the edge off. A battle I no longer fight constantly.
