My Food Temptation

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

So I've been following my doctor's advice and doing the Sugar Busters program for the past several months. I've lost over 21 pounds, and my sugar cravings are considerably less now.

Here comes the temptation - I have to bake 100 Christmas sugar cookies for my church's Sunday school classes to decorate. NOOOOOOOOOOO! Not sugar!

I'm going to be realistic and probably have a few cookies, but I will not let myself fall into old habits and overeat or use this as an excuse to "fall off the wagon."

Wish me luck!

    Be careful! That's a lot of cookies!

Have you considered using Splenda in place of sugar? In baking, you can use the same amounts. Or try using Splenda in just a portion of the batter in place of sugar.

Good Luck! Lizzie

    Maybe set aside the cookies you plan to eat in a separate container or Ziploc bag? That way you can plan out your serving size. Good luck!
