The no sugar thing is not working out for me. I don't *do* deprivation and I should have known that about myself. But I see everyone getting all frothy at the mouth decrying the evils of sugar and I think I should, too. It's just not the way my mind works. If I think I can't have something, I will stop at nothing to get it.

Back on the sugar. I eat less of it when I'm not trying to stay away from it.

    Eating less but not depriving yourself is the way to go. Glad you were able to figure out what works for you and what doesn't. Wishing you continued success on your journey! emoticon

    At the risk of sounding redundant, I'd like to agree with all other responses to your post. I've always said deprivation leads to binging. Moderation, baby, moderation!

  As has already been said.... It's all in moderation Chica!! emoticon I am the same way... if I think I can't have it... I will end up on an all out binge with it and leading into all the other junk!! When I am craving the sugar... I have done it in moderation and have not had a week yet that I have not lost. It can be done. emoticon

    Lori, I'm with you! This is a lifestyle change. It is NOT about depriving ourselves, rather about moderation! I know you can do whatever you put your mind to that YOU feel is right for you...

    I am the same way. The more I try to stay away from something like chocolate (especially) the more I want it and HAVE to have it!

    I tried to do the same with chocolate, it backfired big time. One piece of high quality chocolate a day is working for me.
Less is more indeed!

    I agree, less is better than none. Moderation works for lifetime health, right? But I'm curious, what kind of sugar do you go for in the morning? PopTarts? Have some protein and whole grains with that sugar - it will help you stay feeling full and prevent some of that post-sugar drop that can happen.

    Word up. Less is better than none for me, too. I can't hear none and accept that. Not when it comes to sweets. Did you know one marshmallow is only 22 calories? We make s'mores in our fireplace after sledding outside in the winter, and one s'more can be had for 140 calories. Not too shabby, takes the edge off the sweet tooth!
