Moderation not for me

Sunday, December 30, 2012

I have been on this weight loss journey a long time and have really tried to find a plan that works for me without too much success. I realize that the suggestion to be moderate in my food choices doesn't work for me. After repeated attempts to not deprive myself of those things I love...a little ice cream, a little chocolate, a little cookie...and having the little bit reapeatedly triggering a craving that I can't control...I have come to the conclusion that if I do in fact want to lose weight and become healthy and stay healthy, I need to give up sugar. Sugar seems to affect me differently the most, so the plan in 20 13 is no sugar..not event in moderation.

    I find that I'm turning more to fruit too. Like you, I try to stay away from sugar as much as possible for the same reason. Sugar seems to create the craving for more sugar.

    Oops, had another thought. Replace the sugar cravings with a little fresh fruit and some nuts, if you can.

    This definitely is reality for so many of us! There may be good news in that theSP four week no-sugar challenge often either cuts the craving or reduces it greatly. At the end of the challenge, I was ready for a little bit of sugar sweet. I was delighted to discover that I didn't then go on and on into more. So I've stayed on the no-sugar challenge with an occasional cookie or ice cream. I also stay away from non-sugar sweeteners, both natural and chemical, except for some stevia in my tea. Tracking my food daily also helps. All that seemed to aid my struggle. Hope as you begin the process, you'll be encouraged to take just one day or step at a time. It can be rough for sure. emoticon
