to our team, Happy Healthy Sparkers, I'm glad you joined us Sue. Looking forward to seeing you on the chat thread. Feel free to jump right in and talk to us, we're the friendliest team around!
Hi there! I just saw your intro post in the OA team. You had asked about sweeteners. I had the same question when I joined OA and gave up sweets and sugars. I posted a reply to your question on that thread, if you wish to see it. I am finding that a sweetener here and there is working for me, although certain ones seem to be a potential trigger for me.
Thanks for your comments on my spark page. I think taking your afghan is a great idea! Keeping our hands busy is a really good way to stayed focused on something else. You asked about whether sugar substitutes are addictive? I don't really know. But sweet things, in general, tend to set me off. So I just try to be as careful as possible. Good luck to you with your family! 1058 days ago
