I think I lost a tooth.............

Ok, I admit it.......I'm a confirmed "sweetie" I love sweets and desserts. The goo-ier, chocolaty-er, and richer the better. You know when you hear people say........ugh, that's good but way to rich......I scoff at those light weights..........wussies, I say! Since beginning my WW journey, I've been eating so much healthy food (which I'm also in love with........did I mention that I love food and pretty much eat and love anything that doesn't eat me first? matter as I digress) that I haven't been hungry for sweets. In the very beginning I would eat a couple tablespoons of chocolate chips, but then even that desire went away. I bought some T Marzetti's caramel apple dip and eat it every once in awhile just for form........I don't even want it! Yesterday I think the very last vestige of my sweet tooth rotted and fell away........I made some Banana Butter for The Man to eat on ice cream and The Youngun to eat on pancakes and PB sandwiches. I tasted some of it and it's good but way too sweet! *gasping and clutching my heart* I have turned into one of those lightweight wussies that I always made fun of! I mixed two tablespoons of it with some cream cheese and used it for an apple dip and it was all I could do to choke it down. Once again, it was good but TOO SWEET! *sigh* I never thought I'd hear myself say such a horrible! Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that I'll never again eat a piece of Caramel Fudge Cake, or Fudge Cake with thick homemade Fudge Frosting, but for whatever reason, it just doesn't even sound good to me right now. Even my raisin bran is almost too sweet..........perhaps I'm just finally sweet enough? I don't know, but I'm not really complaining. It makes giving up those wonderfully decadent sweets that my tooth used to love that much easier. The thing that has me really puzzled is that if I wanted it I could have it, I just don't want it. hmmmm.........that's a thinker!

Till next time...........I'm unTHICKIN and soTHINNIN!
