My Sugar Report #flashfiction

The February 13, 2020, Carrot Ranch prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes a sugar report. Use its original meaning of a letter from a sweetheart to a soldier or invent a new use for it. Go where the prompt leads! Respond by February 18, 2020.

It’s been a difficult month. I’ve fought temptation the best I could, to no avail. My sugar report for this month is a bust. I couldn’t fight the temptations. I gave in to my demons.

My weight loss journey has been fraught with many ups and downs. One day, I meet my goal without breaking a sweat. The next day after a three-mile ramble, I’m starving and willing to eat every carb in the house. And, I do.

Some battles just aren’t worth the fight. My mom said for special occasions, just go ahead and just eat the cake!

    • LOL! I’m never ending battle with the bulge, Robbie. I have to fight those temptations. I found this photo first. The baby was so cute. I had to use it and have some fun. ❤


    • LOL! The struggle is real… gluten free for me. This weight thing is so tough. It’s like learning how your body works all over again just because you turn 60ish… YIKES!
