I have long struggled with my weight. Regardless of how much exercise I do it’s a challenge for me but there are big things coming up for our family so I  really want to see some improvement. So the past two weeks, our family has been on a very strict diet (kind of a sugar detox). We based our eating plan on the 10-Day Detox Diet by Dr Mark Hyman, MD but with a few alterations here and there.

One cool thing with Dr Hyman’s book is the daily reflections and journaling prompts. While I wrote in my journal one of the nights it occurred to me that I was treating junk food and sweets as if they were a necessary part of my diet instead of keeping them in their proper place. So I jotted this in the corner ‘Treat, treats as treats … Not a food group’.

Does anyone else treat treats like a food group?

I won’t anymore!
