    ... me too emoticon .. I am substituting sugary sweets with healthier alternatives like sugar-free pudding and real whipped cream (only 1 carb), sugar-free jello and fruit/cottage cheese or plain Greek yogurt... Other than that, I keep all sweets out to the house because I have absolutely no will-power.

Good luck, just keep trying and eventually , although you may never conquer the craving for it, you will be able to reach a happy medium (median????) with it.

    Journal that stress and brain storm other ways to cope with your stress. Giving yourself other options will keep you mindful of your choices. Take it one day at a time and count your blessing. There is a lot you can teach your GK's as they live with you at this time. Think of the memories you can create.

    I can't eat sweets without getting cravings. I feel for you if you have them in the house for the family. I found a few fruit type replacements that I turn to. Good luck. You can do it.

    Would it be possible to have you get rid of the sugary stuff out of the house or least keep it out of sight? Having no sweets for the grandkids might not make you a popular granny but certainly won't hurt the kids either. My family often puts their sweets in the deep freeze so I don't have to look at them all day. There are healthy cookies you can make that is on this site. Keep healthy snacks out so you will be more tempted to eat them. Eat small meals multiple times a day so you will feel full and the sweets won't be so tempting. I'd still keep them out of the house or hidden. When you want to give treats while watching grandkids give them the healthy stuff and make sure they see you eating them too. Also make sure if you use cold cereal no sugary stuff for anyone. My kids did just fine on plain Cheerios, Kix, Chex, Special K, you get the idea. They won't be as hyper on the good stuff and add fruit for the sweetness. Good luck to you.
