Bella, I get where you're coming from. Processed sugars ARE bad, and I totally agree on the chicken and egg reference. I went for something like 8 months with literally NO cake, cookies, candies... NOTHING. Well, that's a lie. I did have ONE hard candy. lol. That was all. I didn't miss it, I didn't want it. Oh, how I would love to be back in that place and just say no. It's making everything so much easier to have the determination and not feel any kind of pressure from it. :) And I have promised myself to just politely have a little bite next time a kid offers cake. Or maybe come up with an allergy excuse. lol.
