It’s been several months now since I became a member of the diabetes club. It’s not so bad, really.
Once you get over the cravings.
Mostly….……(I still miss bread.)
This whole new ‘lifestyle’ comes with some side effects, though.
Some are good, I’ve lost some weight.
Some are, well, just plain weird!
I’ve always had vivid dreams.
But I’ve never had dreams like these!
For the past week I’ve dreamed of a GIANT red velvet cupcake!
Tall and lovely ………..blood red with buttery cream cheese frosting!
Sometimes I slice it into pieces with an enormous knife.
Other times I climb a tall ladder to reach the frosting.
And it’s DELICIOUS!
The BEST cupcake I’ve ever eaten.
And when I’m done eating I always feel guilty. Like I’m going to be sent to the principal’s office for misbehaving!
I’m hoping it’s just a phase.
Please tell me it’s just a phase and this too shall pass.
Because if I have this to look forward to every night I can see I’m headed for a huge fall off the sugar free wagon!
My subconscious is trying to undermine my waking resolve.
And it knows I have no willpower!
