Mourning the loss of a longtime dear friend

Sugar.

I am sad to say that I think I have lost my sweet tooth. Any of you who know me know how much I love sweets. Hell, you don't really have to know me that well to figure it out. The title of this blog implies a love for cookies at the very least.

But for the past few weeks, I have had no desire to eat sweets. No chocolate, no cookies, no pies, no ice cream, no cake, no nothing. I have eaten these things, though very sporadically. And I have eaten them only because I know I 'like' them. But I got no pleasure from eating the sweets. I was left with a funny taste in my mouth. A sweet taste that made me cringe. Even a sick feeling in my stomach.

I admit, I am confused about the change. It's not something I have set out to do. I am not intentionally eating fruit, it's just what I want. Instead of candy. Instead of cookies. Very confusing.

Unfortunately, I think this marks the end of an era. An era of baking and snacking that has defined who I am. I don't even bake anymore. My kids bake treats and they get to eat them, ALL OF THEM. No more hoarding the cookies for myself. No more eating cookies in my room while drinking DC.

It's sad. I've lost touch with a dear friend. Maybe we'll reunite soon. I hope so. Otherwise, I'll have to change the name of this blog.

Yeah, "Eggs for Breakfast" just doesn't have the same ring.

Have you tried mixing your fruit with pastry and chocolate chocolate? Maybe that will trigger something. I've never been big on sweets (fatty and salty are my thing), but there's nothing like a crepe wrapped around a banana smothered in warm Nutella.

Damn it, now I want a banana crepe with nutella.

Marianne, I'm sorry, I have sucked up all the sugar cravings the world can handle right now. Possibly for 2 more months. Now, if only you could do the exercising for me while I'm busy binging for everyone I know...

oh no, not the sweet tooth!!!! I love my sweets, although I'm kind of sporadic about what kind of sweets I want. Right now I'm with you that I would rather have a banana or something...

I think it's the end of summer 'I am overwhelmed and crazy because of my kids and I can't wait for school to start' blues. I'm hoping the sugar love will pick back up in a couple more weeks.

Kylene, trust me- I'm exercising enough for three people. I'm actually pretty addicted to the gym.

Brandi, I haven't made crepes in forever. I don't buy nutella because it wouldn't last two days in my house. And I only like bananas in honey nut cheerios. But I'd compromise with strawberries or peaches.

I'm still amazed that you can sit in front of a variety of foods and only pick at them (aka, minimal snacking at Ariella's luncheons). I'm jealous, while I sit there stuffing my face. I have no self control. Although, I have to admit, I'd take a nice juicy peach over candy any day.

I'm sorry for your loss.

ARE YOU PREGNANT!!???!!! Wait. nevermind. But still, that is how I am when I am prego and it's weird, the sugary stuff that I once liked seriously just tasted different.

I sorta feel bad for you. Eat a double stuf oreo for me and SAVOR it without paying 6 dollars a package. Maybe that will help. Your welcome.

You know I would be sorry, but I seriously wish I had that problem. That seems to be all I want these days. And of course, one is never enough. I wish I could say I was going to the gym but I'm not doing that either. Aaaaack!! Maybe, just maybe, you need to get back into cake decorating. Just a thought.
