I have readdicted myself with sugar. My scale is slowly inching back up and I just can't seem to get motivated again. After all the work to get 70 pounds off, I have gained almost half of it back. So now to get the sugar back out of my system, I need to start taking my own lunch to work or just come home to eat or even just lose one meal a day period. It doesn't help that I have to take a break now. Before I could stop and sit for a few minutes, grab something to drink and go back to work. We aren't allowed to do that anymore. Just need to rethink my eating plan again.

    Hey Nancy honey, you can do this.
For me cold turkey is the only thing that worked at that time.
Whether you go for no sugar (fruit also has lots of sucrose and lactose in milk.
I let go of all these things when I started to clear them right out of my system. 3 months of cleansing. I also let go of caffeine. However the good news is that the craving left within the first week.

It did work on all counts. The three months passed very quickly and there was no counting of any kind. I could eat as much as I needed or wanted of the unrestricted foods.

This programme is what got me started in Spark because of sugar and other allergies to processed food and my body did not respond well to the processed and other carbs in the main programme.

I am wishing you well my friend.

    Oh, I feel for you!
Sugar is another addicting white crystalline substance -- just like cocaine; and it affects the same part of the brain! ...and I assume it is just as hard to beat into submission as cocaine. I used to have dreams of a smorgasbord of desserts, piled high and long... and I would throw my entire body into it and gorge and gorge and gorge... OMG, I craved sugar!

I am here to say that while I have memories, I no longer have the cravings. IT CAN BE DONE! And you know the easiest way to do it is "cold turkey". Use the food-tracker! Cut out ALL those carbs! Quit lying to yourself! ALL of the carbs! And SLOWLY re-introduce only healthy carbs. You didn't do ALL THAT WORK to lose 70 pounds only to throw it away on sugar! Not when there are (there really are!) sweet alternatives you can use to get you past the cravings!

Now, quit hoping it will happen and MAKE it happen!

We are here for you!

    I'm new, but sugar is my favorite 'poor choice' to make when eating, too. Hope it levels out for you in the future and a new eating plan comes into focus.

    I'm in a similar place. I am trying to make small changes and get back on plan. Good luck!
