A "Dear John" Letter

Dear Sugar,

We've been together a long time, but I find that I need to stop seeing you for a while.

It's not you; it's me.

You are very refined, but I need to be more down to earth.  I want to be with someone more rooted and natural.

Actually, it is you.

I know this is hard to hear, but I just feel bad after being with you.  Sure, you can be sweet and all, but I'm left drained, like I have no energy to go on.  I get sad and moody, too.  I know, I know, you're there to make me happy, again, but it's not real happiness.  Besides, look at this extra 80 pounds I gained from trying to be happy with you!  Frankly, you're just not good for my heart.

It's going to be awkward at first when we run into each other, which is inevitable because you are EVERYWHERE that I have to be.  You are the life of the party and everybody loves you.  But, I have to ignore you.  I hope you understand.

Yes, I've met someone else, actually, many others.  They bring me sustained joy and lift me up, not leave me down like you do.(I don't know why I didn't give them the time-of-day before.  Once I got to know them, I've discovered how wonderful they are... and beautiful.  It's taken me a while to appreciate their beauty).  If you want to meet them, that's fine, but remember, my attention is to them.  It's not all about you anymore.

So, please, don't call me nor tempt me.  And, don't send your sister, White Flour, over, either.  You're both kind of empty, and I just don't need that anymore.




  1. This is great! So clever and so true. LOVE IT!! :)

  2. Now I know where I get my sense of satire! In addition to what you write, you're sweet enough already.

  3. I love this Gina. It funny, clever, and yet these are powerful words. I can also SOOOO relate. I'm so happy for you. Hang in there!! You CAN do it. xoxo

  4. OMGosh her sister?
    she kills me.
    Ive banished her, too.

  5. Love this! Stay strong and don't let the little b**** tempt you again!

  6. This is so clever. I accidentally banished sugar from my diet because I got the flu and lost my taste buds. I'm trying to keep it going for a while longer to see if it's true that you lose your cravings for it after a while. Good luck to both of us! :-)

  7. Just wanted to let you know that I've just begun to follow your blog. Looking forward to reading your journey as I am on a similar path. I'm grateful you are blogging!
