Back on the Wagon, AGAIN!

Dr. Richard Johnson, author of the Sugar Fix

Good Morning, God!

And Thank You! I am now officially BACK ON THE WAGON — off of sugar and grains and stuff that turns instantly into sugar. I must say watching Dr. Johnson’s video on Dr. Mercola was DISTRESSING! It is one thing to know sugar is bad for us. It is quite another to hear the details of HOW it harms us.

The chemical steps seem to be that Fructose breaks down quickly into a variety of waste products — one of them being uric acid — that’s the one that causes gout. But it now appears that uric acid ALSO inhibits nitric oxide and leads to increased blood pressure, kidney disease, obesity, diabetes, fatty liver, elevated triglycerides, etc.

Actually, God, what had the biggest impact on me was the idea that fructose — and high fructose corn syrup — depletes energy so that one doesn’t feel like exercising. One feels like eating. One feels like eating something SWEET!

After weeks of having just a “little of this” and just a “little more of that” I “suddenly” found myself eating everything in sight. The Sugar Snake was OUT of her CAGE. I felt helpless.

But, I think YOU must have helped. Because I sort of accidentally stumbled on these videos of Dr. Johnson AND I actually took the time to watch both videos — 15 minutes worth. That was so unlikely, God. I give You the credit.

Once again, I am vowing to take care of myself. Vowing to be The Good Parent for myself. Please, God, help me keep my focus — and to stay on the upward helix!
