Desserts and Other Sweets

Monday, January 14, 2013

I weighed myself today. Not down, but at least not up:-) I was disappointed - my goal is to lose 50 pounds this year, and I am determined to do so!

I said so to my DH, and he said "well, then, you'll need to stay away from the desserts". He's right. I hadn't realized that we've had more desserts than usual lately.

I eat lunch at 11:00 and it's now close to 1:30. I find myself wanting something. But wait - am I hungry? NO - I'm bored! (How can that be when I'm at work?:-) I want something sweet because I'm bored!

I didn't have anything, and I'm so proud of myself that I caught myself! Yes, I still want something, but I want to lose my pound this coming week even MORE!

    Don't you just hate that - I want something but know I'm not hungry? It truly is a struggle. Usually for me in front of the TV. I think the key is just cutting out as much sugar as possible and when the urge hits either resist it or have something small, but healthy.
Wishing you much luck on your journey and in your new class.
I'm adding you as a spark friend and hope to watch and encourage you!

    Chew desert gum- that usually fixes my sweet tooth! When I'm board I browse- again, not cause I'm hungry- guess out of bad habit. I've gotta keep busy!

    I usually eat grapes when I want something sweet. I cut white sugar out of my diet almost 3 years ago but still creave sweets.

Great goal!!! Nuts are a great snack at work in the afternoon. You not only get a healthy snack but some energy too. I measure mine out and put them in baggies.

    Chew on ice!! Or snack on some nuts--healthy and high in protein!

  Uh, now I want dessert. Not really, but I find the desire for sugar is more frequent when I increase my desserts. So now I am cutting back on all sugar and expect my sugar urge to be reduced as well. Thank you for sharing that many of us have this problem.
