Artificial Sweeteners - another aha moment!

Saturday, July 09, 2011

Been back on SP for 3 weeks now. In this time I have eliminated my use of artificial sweeteners and paid attention to portion sizes. Instead of having that starving feeling that I expected, I have found that i am not craving sugary foods. I did have a moment where I really wanted ice cream but waited it out and had a peach instead. The surprising part - it worked!!!! This surprised me greatly because I am a "don't want to live in a world without icecream" kinda person. I truly believe that getting back to real sugar has helped me reduce cravings. Aha!

  I know how hard it can be to wait those cravings out so congrats on your willpower. emoticon
This is your "aha" moment showing you that you'll do better without fake sugars. I've gone through this before and try not to drink my beloved Diet Pepsi too often. It can be difficult some days, but I remember the domino effect that it'll have.
