I had a great revelation today while choosing what to drink at the local Panera. I like sweetened ice tea and from now on I’m going to choose it over unsweetened. Now this may not seem earthshaking to you, but when you have made choices based on healthy considerations instead of what you enjoy all of your adult life, it’s big.
And that is what I have done. Chosen unsweetened ice tea because I thought it was healthier and it always tasted terrible, but I soldiered on thinking I was doing my body a favor. Actually, I was just drinking something I hated and developing feelings of resentment that later turned into an eating binge. Really, how much sugar is in a glass of tea? and is it really going to kill me. I don’t think so. From now on I’m going to eat in moderation the foods that I like and that make my body feel good.
No more pressure from my overly developed food conscience. Life is too short. It’s time to enjoy it!
