H.F.C.S.

My love affair with you began even before I knew of your existence. All I knew was that you made everything mind-numbingly amazing. Soon you had a hold on me and when I was finally told how bad you really were, I was hooked. I was like a junkie... people should have held an intervention for me except they were too far gone as well.

So like any rational junkie I quit cold turkey. Sure, it worked for 3 months but I eventually relapsed.

Like a jealous ex-lover, I seethed everytime I saw you with someone else... "if I can't have you, nobody can!" I thought. So could anyone blame poor me when my addiction to you came bearing down with the force of a million sperm whales?

Getting over you ain't easy, that's for sure. But I'm slowly putting you behind. Baby steps love, baby steps. But High Fructose Corn Syrup, I hope you know I still think about you when I'm eating a bland chicken wing at an otherwise perfect barbeque.

Yes, I'll come clean. You haunt me even today. You take the simple pleasures out of life. Everything from the obvious (chocolate syrup) to the not so obvious (ketchup and low-fat italian dressing -- my favorite...).

I know now that I'm better off without you. Yeah, I just have to keep telling myself that.

Make-up Recommendation: Chanel's Nude Blush is a must-have color and so easy to apply. Because of its natural sun-kissed colors (not at all like bronze which I despise), it's so easy to apply all over your face as you see fit (I would recommend cheeks and the tip of the nose) and it gives you beautiful summer glow.

Haha, Angel, you crack me up. You're a good writer too, so ... well, at first I thought HFCS stood for Holy Fuck Cunt Slut but I guessed wrong. In a good way ;)

Thanks for the recommendation. I bought the book with both skepticism and hope. I've been on the South Beach & Zone before, and lost weight on both, but felt ultimately really bloated (though I looked skinny) and really freaken miserable. I kept tricking myself that I was full when I wasn't. And that's when the binging started and I gained 20 FREAKEN POUNDS! My natural set weight is 118-120, but now I'm like 133...and my lowest was 110.

Anyway, I bought the book, and so far I'm loving the green lemonade. My grandma used to make that for me years ago. I'm crossing my fingers that it works. I'm also a level 3, and the author's very on-point with where I am in my diet-life right now.

Couple of questions if you could answer for me:
-Do you eat the recommended deserts every day?
-Do you eat any deserts?
-Or Larabars with your salad? (Larabars taste too sweet sometimes and make me feel bloated)
-How much weight have you lost?
-Are you "regular" if you know what I mean...?

Thank you for your help:) You have no idea how nice it feels to speak to someone who knows where I may be coming from.

And I'm Asian (Chinese) too, btw. ;)
