Today is the Day

I’m done. Our relationship is getting out of control – and it has to end. Although my husband has not said anything, I think he notices the changes that have taken place in me. How can he not?

You have been in and out of my life for years. You wooed me with your charm until you finally got me under your control.

You demand my place is in the kitchen searching through cookbooks for the perfect recipe, slaving over a hot stove or mixing up delectable sweets. Your badgering is relentless, and I give in just to make you stop. We often meet at the grocery store or Costco where we blend in – unnoticed by others. Once I get home, the memory of your sweetness tempts me to the point that all I want to do is devour Every. Single. Part of you.

I admit, there are many occasions when you bring me total joy and bring a smile to my face while I moan in ecstasy. There are no boundaries, no limits, no end to the pleasure. But honestly, sneaking around to enjoy the mid-morning, mid-afternoon and/or pre-bedtime indulgences has got to stop – not to mention the midnight rendezvous! You have recently given me an ultimatum forcing me to decide between choosing you or choosing something else that is actually better for my life. 

I want this to stop, but this may not be the best time to end this relationship since the holiday season is fast approaching. (Don’t believe me? Just wander down the aisles in Hobby Lobby.) You beg for more time. You try to convince me we could have so much fun together as the holidays approach.

Well, it has been fun, lots of fun, but (this is not as hard to say as I thought it would be) it is time for you to go. It won’t be easy, but I figure I have three to four months to get you out of my system.  At that time, I know you will try one last trick to tempt me back into a relationship with you ~ one last fling before the holidays.

In all honesty, the way things have been going between us lately, just looking at you makes me feel disgusted and provides plenty of self-motivation. Waiting to break up after the new year is just not an option.

You are toxic. There I said it.

The choice is mine – GOODBYE…time for some changes.

  1. Well you caught me hook, line and sinker. I thought you were leaving your husband is getting rather personal for a Weekend Coffee Share and en t twistgoddluck. My friend has recently lost about 30 kilos ombining diet and exercise. It’s been really tough but it’s made a potentially life-changing difference. So, good luck.
    Best wishes,

  2. Haha! This was awesome. I chuckled at this. I’ve done much better with my sugar intake, but still have that sweet tooth.


  3. Lol! I lived this post!
    I did the same in 2018, with all added sugar in my diet!
    All gone…
    Still going strong 3.5 years later!
    I just see it as poison for my body & it loses all its appeal 😉


  4. The best goodbye you will ever say (well, at least one of the best!) Stick with it. Good accountability for putting it out here!!:)


  5. Good luck! I’ve had to cut back on sugar for health reasons. I backslide occasionally, but it’s been a positive change overall. The trick for me has been to find yummy foods to replace the treats so I don’t feel deprived.

  6. Good luck – those little treats are often harder to give up than we expect. Nothing beats a snack when you’re feeling down or bored – so you’ve certainly taken on a challenge and a half!
