Sugar Addiction...


I have decided that pregnancy has increased my craving for sugar even more so than it was before. It seems that all I want to eat is sugary, types of foods. Not just deserts are enough anymore, it has transcended into breakfast, lunch and dinner. For example, I will eat some type of sugar cereal before coming to work, at lunch I will have a granola bar and yogurt. When dinner time rolls around, I like some kind of chicken dish with a sugary after taste (stir fry, sticky chicken, etc), followed by some small sugary desert. At times my snacks are even sugary (watermelon, nectarines, grapes, etc). I try to keep it healthy, but it doesn't always work. It's a surprise I haven't gained more weight than I have. I am afraid with all the sugar I have been having that my child will be 12 pounds. That doesn't sound like fun. If anyone has any suggestions on how to curb my appetite, feel free to suggest! Don't forget to leave comments!

Eat the "sugar" foods and enjoy them!! If you're eating watermelon and grapes, etc; that's really good for you and Elli. By the way, how are you going to spell her nickname?
