This seems like a common theme for me lately--the sugar binging! I am focusing today on staying away from it all together--just for today--then I will tackle it again tomorrow. I am currently 7 pounds above my goal weight. I am one pound under my WW goal for my free lifetime membership--but I want to get back to MY goal. I got lazy over the cold months, and I'm getting better about activity again with the weather getting warmer, but I need to develop a strategy that works for me before the next cold season approaches again, so I don't find myself in this same conundrum again. It's hard enough to maintain within a few pounds without letting myself get almost 10 pounds over!! I am not giving up on me though like I have before. Thanks to all my spark friends who support me and comment and share their own struggles--you give me strength!

    You are certainly not alone with the sugar battle!! The Easter candy being available in 'single' portions was just so tempting to me. Funny, because regular candy bars don't really ever tempt me.

I think the warmer weather is exactly what I need to get pumped up to get my cardio going strong again. The ST is excellent -- but I would like to get cardio going stronger again. I do it, just need more, and more intensity.

Taking it one day at a time is the best way to approach it. Every choice we make about food and movement either sets us towards our goals or away from them. Try to make as many good choices as possible!

    Sugar is a nasty drug. I was so addicted to it. It was so hard for me to get off it but I finally just went cold turkey and was having hardly any sugar...oh yes, occaisionally I will have cake. I am a bit worried now as I have been having an eletrolyte problem and the doctor is recommending I drink Gatorade which has tons of sugar....and I won't do artifical sugar. I will be strong though and not let all the cookies and cakes sneak back in.
You can do this.
Keep on keeping on!

    Easter candy is a strong sugar trigger-I, too, was totally letting myself eat the candy --that I bought so I can't blame anyone but myself for that:( emoticon

Spring and getting out will boost your mood, motivation and energy. emoticon

    When that sugar urge hits, it's a tough one! I know I've been slipping a bit myself, so I'll take your challenge myself! Easter was fun, my sister and her family came up, and we had a great time indulging, but that's over now, time to focus back on the healthy stuff!

    It's worth the struggle! Keep it up!! As long as you don't give up, you'll get there AND can stay there. Take good care of yourself. You deserve it.

    I have struggled with sugar this winter too. I've put on over 10 lbs. I'm not giving up either, like I have in the past. Times may be difficult in my life right now but I'm committed to losing what I gained over winter.
