Colette's Blog

Hello! How is your summer going so far? I hope you are all doing well.

I wanted to talk about something that I struggle with…sugar. Now I know I can’t be the only one – does anyone else struggle with sugar? It is literally addictive! I’ve found that if I have some chocolates or a few bites of something sweet that I have to go through the whole detox process of weaning myself of sugar again, which is so frustrating. How do you deal with it?

I try to avoid it, but I’ve been traveling back and forth to the UK for work and there are so many treats over there that are hard to resist. When I’m really tempted, I think of how I used to feel when I would try on pants and the top button would pop open, or when I couldn’t fit into my jackets, and I remember that it’s just not worth it to start with the sugar.

I was talking about it with my son Jack the other day, and he told me a funny quote from “Men In Black III.”

“- Do you know what’s the most destructive force in the universe?
- Sugar?”

That made me laugh. Hopefully you enjoyed it as well and can laugh about it the next time you’re faced with the sugar struggle.

All My Love and Support,

Sharon
