I love sweets, They are my BIGGEST downfall. I don't care if its candy, cookies, or even yummy flavorful lattes if they are there I'm tempted. That is probably why even though I watch what I eat (well everything but sweets), and exercise I still haven't dropped a pound in months. So now that I have got past Christmas my goal is to wean myself off sugar.
I have been saying for months I was going to limit my deserts to no more than twice a week, but something always came up, usually my mom seeing something at the store she had to have. Now that I'm not living with her I am hoping I can reach my goals easier.
But as I know my addiction to sweets is boarding on rehab status I am going to really push to achieve my goals. Not just state that they are my goals, make a conscious effort every day to reach them. It's easy to make the excuse that "once this desert is gone then I won't make any more (or buy anymore", but then there is another, and another, and another.....
So I am going to do the *gasp* unthinkable and throw away food. Something I was raised to NEVER do, and there in lies my problem. That is the problem many of us have. We were raised to always clean our plates, and enjoy our deserts in amply supply.
Breaking bad habits can be difficult, especially if it is engrained since birth. With each bad habit we turn away from the new good habits get easier to follow, and we FEEL so much better.

I have to say overall I feel a lot better. My chronic fatigue is almost non existent. The Cafe Pure green coffee drink doesn't give me the jitters. It just gives me a nice amount of energy that last for several hours. I made the mistake the other night of drinking it around 8:30 pm and couldn't get asleep until 2 am.
Other than my chronic fatigue improvements I haven't had as much problems getting sick or feeling run down. My digestion is more normal also. I see to be able to power through my workouts a lot easier without feeling wiped out afterwards. Here is what they claim each thing that I am taking does:
Noni: 100% pure and organic noni juice. High in fiber for digestive health, supports healthy serotonin levels, promotes a healthy immune system, very high in minerals, trace minerals and over 160 nutrients. Supports healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
Goji: Enhances mood, supports healthy serotonin levels, supports overall cardiovascular health, increases endurance and stamina, promotes healthy liver and kidney function, supports healthy libido and vision, helps protect cell DNA for healthy aging.
Mangosteen: Extremely high ORAC (oxygen radical absorption capacity) rating, which protect cells against free radicals. Supports healthy histamine levels, natural anti-inflammatory properties, promotes cardiovascular health, natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Provides immune system support.
Go-Yin: Supports a balanced body - physically and mentally. Enhances mood, reduces tension, depression and fatigue. Supports healthy energy. Provides antioxidant power. Increases vigor.
I take SSRI, and other anti anxiety/anti-depression meds and there is so far no reaction to them. I have days I seem easier to deal with things, and some days I see no difference so not sure how the Go-Yin is working.
Overall I see a huge improvement in the way I feel. I have a lot more energy. It's not like I want to clean the entire house, I just don't get wiped out when I do. Before if I did a lot of cleaning I would have to recoup the next day and would not only feel run down, but my glands would be swollen also. My mom has to watch taking the Cafe Pure because she is very sensitive to any medications and even herbs. She can't even take tylanol without it making her pass out. She does enjoy it and takes half a serving after the first time making her want to rearrange the entire house.
Glad I am feeling healthier. Now if I could just keep away from the sweets.
