Hi! I just joined SparkPeople a couple of hours ago haha. I had a sugar detox a month of two ago and everything was going well. Then I went to a buffet on Tuesday and couldn't control and ate 2 plates of desserts emoticon Now, I'm getting all my sweet cravings again! I had a cake for morning tea and a brownie with a scoop of ice cream for afternoon tea! OH MY GOD! Please! Help me to tame my sweet tooth and curb my sugar addiction!

Reintroducing myself here after wandering off base. I do know I need to check in here regularly to keep myself on track. I spend too much time thinking about sugar and I really need to work on addressing those cravings in a more positive way.

Step 1: Stop and think. Step 2: Take a deep breath. Step 3: Make a good choice.

Hi,
Just joined this group today. I'm an emotional eater. Had a lot of Very Bad Things happen in the last 3 days. My mood plummeted .I bought some 11 gram chocolate bars to put in the freezer for KILLER DAYS or for a TREAT. In the past, once in the freezer, I left them alone. I ate half of them, shared the others with my SO.
He brought some home the other day, because I asked him to.....sigh
Yesterday, because I need to clean up the kitchen, go shopping, etc, we ordered out; cheese burger, home made chips and.....a chocolate milk shake....malted milk shake.

I need to stop eating certain foods- the kind that once you have ONE, you're gonna eat A
TON of....chocolate, ginger snaps, rice crackers(not sweet, but in the same category.

Anyone here ever hear about The Dry Soda Company? They make terrific semi-soda like drinks, with only 55-65 calories per 12 oz can. It's nice to have an alternative to water or tea, because I can't drink "diet" drinks. The sucralose, maltose, destrose, stevia, splenda, etc all make me shudder. Regular drinks are MUCH too cloyingly sweet, but I need something to drink that's not water.
I have a very bad case of dry mouth, eyes, etc. Sometimes, water is wonderful. Other times, though, water doesn't moisturize my mouth. I've tried all the "dry mouth" things the dentist recommended, but they don't work long enough.

Part of the solution is to put a bit of lime juice in water, or some OJ in water, because that works.

Two issues- emotional eating and dry mouth that screams for SomeThing Other Than Water to leave moisture in my mouth...

Help.

Hi, I'm new today. Sugar is my most presenting form of my food addiction. I am going to abstain from sugar, honey, artificial sweeteners (in my case, as per recent studies I've read), stevia, etc.for the one month challenge.... I need to free myself of the need for all food to taste like 'dessert', which is what I "want". I weigh 223 (I don't know how to make the little graph which shows your weight and any loss. Oh I just realized how to do it I think! ) emoticon emoticon Anyway I can be super active. Just swam the Alcatraz Invitational swim for the third time at age 69. But I am still a sugar addict in need of recovery and still have hemoglobin A-1-c worries. Otherwise I am OK with my weight and my waist to hip ratio. I do want to be metabolically healthy though.

Hello,
My name is Xanthe, and I'm back here on SP after a long hiatus. I started with a "no soda" challenge for 30 days, neither sugared or diet (I hate diet) on Aug 7. So far, I have not had a single soda. I bought myself a Soda Stream, I'll bubble up plain water and add half a lime. It tastes like Perrier and I'm happy with it.

My next challenge to myself was to go a full week without refined sugar. In addition, I cut out honey, maple syrup and the like. I finished a week and noticed I wasn't tired in the afternoon anymore. The last time I had refined sugar was August 29. I almost ordered dessert yesterday, Sept 29, b/c it was my anniversary. My husband is deployed, and I met a girlfriend for dinner. She's a tiny thing, I am not. She was full, and I know this restaurant's desserts are very large. I asked if they had fruit, they did not. So, I opted to NOT have dessert. I have been blending two frozen bananas with nut butter and dark cocoa, vanilla and almond extract, and some unsweetened almond milk.

I feel like I have a good start. I recently added weight training back in, and will start training for triathlons soon. I'm not sure what I'm going to do for fuel while on the bike and run for longer distance triathlons, I may just make an exception on race day. Then again...???

I am 44, 5'7", weight 183 last time I checked. I have some serious work to do.

Hi, I'm Sue. I too have been with SP for several years with the yoyo diet. THIS time is DIFFERENT...it has to go once and for all. I struggle with sugar. If I eat too much my Fibromyalgia kicks in and I have very fuzzy brain and can't put sentences together. I've been trying to eat whole foods this time and am down 15 pounds again (The same 15.) I now have a walking partner which helps. I don't crave chocolates but sugared sweets. Love donuts but can drive by unless they are at a meeting I'm at. Looking forward to working thru this challenge and learning how to handle this issue. I'm also working with a Nutritionist with my medical group that has been helpful.


And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

Good job, Dawn!

emoticon My name is Beverly and I've been with SP for many years now. I am constantly fighting a battle with the sugar monster - and it usually wins! I've been working on re-thinking my attitude toward sugar. I can't eat just "some!" It triggers an all out binge that won't stop for days! So for me, this will be an all-or-nothing (actually, nothing) experience!!!

I'm Dawn and I have a real problem with sugar. I joined spark in July did good for a month then went back to my old ways. Maybe joining challenges will help me stay on track. Sweets are definitely my down fall, especially donuts. My hubby just got a bad doc visit so I'm trying to help us both.

I'm Cindy and my desire for sugar is out of control. I can often move away from the temptation but it is ALWAYS on my mind.
In my 20's I developed a nasty habit of eating a little debbie cake while preparing dinner. I think that was the beginning of where I am today.
If I weren't able to curb my sugar craving I would literally be living on sweets. I know that is unhealthy and I hope to one day not want sugar every waking moment. It feels like a kind of prison how much thought goes into wanting sweet snacks.

I am in control of who I am and who I will become.

Hi I'm Lea and new to this group. I love chocolate and most things sweet. My goal is to heavily reduce my sweet in take without removing it totally. Slowly but surely I'll whittle it down. But will also add walking to my daily routine even if its just going to and from school for now.

Hi everyone! I just started the challenge today so hopefully I can actually stick with it, especially since I am out of control with my cravings towards sugar. Anyone interested in a buddy system let me know, I've set some short term goals like avoiding sugar etc., but I would love to work with someone who needs one on one encouragement and support.

Hi Everyone! I'm new to this website as of yesterday. My sweet tooth is one thing that definitely gets me. I mainly get the big sweet tooth craving after lunch at work. I occasionally get the craving after dinner, but not all the time. I think I need to start bringing fruit to work to help alleviate the after-lunch cravings. I'm definitely looking forward to completing this challenge!

Hello everyone. I'm here to learn how to curb my sugar cravings. I just found out I am 6 weeks pregnant, and would like to keep my baby weight gain within a healthy range and also create healthy habits (which includes kicking the sweet tooth!) so I can pass them on to my little one.

Looking forward to completing this challenge!

I am completely addicted to sweets. It's disgusting. I eat healthy otherwise (and vegetarian) but when it comes to sugar, I'm a mess. The Spark People quiz even said that my cravings are out of control!

Ack. I know my sugar addiction is what's keeping me from being able to properly get back into shape. Hopefully this challenge can help me get back on track.

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

Hi Everybody,
I am ready for this challenge. I gave up alcoholic beverages several years ago. I have gradually found myself eating more and more sugar. I am here to set the reset button.
It sounds like lots of others struggle with sugar, too.

I have a sweet tooth, and once I start the package whatever the size is a serving. Chocolate anything is my favorite. I will eat bitter chocolate I enjoy the flavor. How do I feed 4 growing active thin grandchildren the kind of afterschool treats they love while avoiding the calories I do not need?

Hi All,
Just thought I would do a quick drop in. I have known I have needed to control my sweet tooth for a while and well I am just now getting around to the first step. In the past I stopped drinking the fruit drinks and soda but I never controlled any of the other stuff. Recently my soda intake has increased from none to quite a few. I know this one will be a hard one for me.

Hi! Sugar doesn't agree with me yet why do I keep eating it? I ask myself this every time I eat it. When I over indulge I get extremely tired and chocolate especially will give me a headache. For the first time ever, my blood work showed prediabetes. I am so glad I found this challenge! emoticon

My sweet tooth rules my life and my weight. I've eaten entire gallons of ice cream because my sweet tooth is never satisfied. I'm starting on the action plan today, though I technically started everything last week. Unfortunately, birthday weekend is a terrible time to start. Now I'm 21 and 30 pounds overweight, but I'm feeling really motivated and want this to be a great year for me.

Hi - my sweet tooth is my Achilles heel as well. I am a working mom of almost 3 year old twins and finding time to exercise and being busy, mindless munching, and craving for sweet to overcome the daily stresses are my main challenges.
I am joining this team to work on this goal with other people with similar goals in the face of challenges.

Hi, just introducing myself.....I've decided that sugar is not my friend so am trying to cut way down. I've already done away with pop (just an occasional one when out to eat, but not much at all). I was on Spark years ago but need to get back on for the support. Have a good day, everyone!

My relationship with sugar goes way back. When I was 2 years old, I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia and the doctors told my parents to give me sugar when I wasn't feeling well. Now, some 50 years later, I'm realizing that when I don't feel well I reach for sugar as a boost. I have to break that pattern as it just makes me feel worse in the long run. I think the big thing for me will be to find substitute "comfort" and remember it when I'm at a low point.

Simply being thankful makes life easier.

I am who I chose to be. Stronger. Leaner. Further. Fierce.

It's about taking my power back.

Hello Everyone!

I am Oneika and new to this team. I eat out of boredom and it drives me crazy!! I swear half of the time I am not craving anything, and I have done good ALL DAY. Then out of nowhere I get it in my mind that I HAVE to have something else!

Destroy negative thoughts when they appear. This is when they're the weakest.

I'm an emotional sugar eater or when extremely bored. I've noticed I gorge on sugar items when negativity is around and when my children aren't in need of me (during nap time) I'm extremely bored and eat sugar. It seems to happen more often than not so...I've got to get rid of the sugar and get the spare tire gone.

My name is Sheila. I am a breast cancer survivor. I didn't used to have an issue with sugar, but I've had a LOT of family drama in my life lately & I picked up a miniature chocolate bar habit that has gotten WAY out of control. Soooo, starting this morning, I quit cold turkey. I thank you in advance for your help. emoticon

Blessings,

Hi all,

I have an all or nothing relationship with sugar it seems. If I have any, I want a bunch. I really want to be able to moderate and have a small bowl of ice cream and not half a carton. Do you think that is possible? emoticon

Hi everyone,

Today is day one - I took the quiz and I am definitely out of control when it comes to sweets. My blood sugar is a constant roller coaster and I can't do it anymore! I have been having terrible anxiety and depression for a month now and I know it is because my diet is so awful. Sugar being the main culprit. Time for it to go!

Hi everyone!

According to the assessment, I am in control of my sweet tooth. Well, lately it doesn't seem that way. I am joining this challenge to help myself to better control my sweet tooth for several reasons. I was borderline diabetic for a while and it was awful. I have finally found my way of getting healthy and have begun to see the changes. I am afraid of failing. I live with this fear everyday. Instead of stopping me, it is my drive. I have a hard time controlling my sweet tooth because my in-laws, who live with us, are always buying sweets. I try to stick to healthy portions, healthy choices and healthy living, but from time to time I do allow myself a little splurge. Lately, however, it has gotten harder. Well, I look forward to completing this challenge and learning how to deal with the cravings.

Hello everyone. Like many of you, I have a problem with eating sweets. Sometimes I can go for a period of time without eating them, but then I'll have one treat. It seems to go downhill from there. My main downfall is chocolate candy. I'm hoping that by joining this team I can get a control on my sweet cravings.

Hi, I'm Josette,

I am trying to get back on track with my health and weight loss goals. I do well for a little while, and then get easily derailed. After a piece of too sweet cake today, that I still can taste, and don't feel good about. I decided it was time to get back here, and take the challenge. Today is day one.

Hi everybody, my name is La Shawn and I am 41 years old. It's not the first time I've tried to kick a habit, lose weight, or eat better. I do okay for awhile then right back into the old habits again. Hopefully this time I can create some healthy alternative choices in food, make time for exercise, and just feel better.

Hi,

My weight goes up and down like a yo-yo. I am in the best condition/frame of mind on a low carb high protein diet. When I get to my goal weight and go on maintenance I tend to slowly gain back the weight. It almost always tends to be too many carbs. I exercise six mornings a week. I need to cut out alcohol and afternoon snacks. My blood work showed everything within normal but I don't like the extra weight around the middle when I gain.

Hi! My name is Michelle and I love chocolate anything. My sugar was high 4 months ago and after watching my sugar intake it has lowered a bit, which has given me a boost! Still want to keep lowering it to a place where I am comfortable. I have a sundae on let's say, Friday and then it begins. The yearning for more sweets. I believe there is such a thing called sugar addiction. I sometimes just need to stay away from sweets altogether for awhile. Easier said than done. I'm glad I'm not alone and look forward to hearing how others contain their cravings! Thanks

I feel like I need to say, "Hello, I'm ______ and I'm a Sugar-holic.

Though it's funny in my mind; the reality is true. Yet I feel hope. This Challenge has brought that and I'm thankful.

I'm Ash - 26, married with three kids! I'm a midwife working a rotating roster, so I'm doing odd shifts at odd hours, while getting up in the night to small kids. I need to lose about 70lb all off to get to my final goal weight. Between one of my pregnancy's, I lost 39lb, only sickness, a degree and two more pregnancies got in the way of that. If I did it once, I can do it again! The worst thing I eat seems to be energy drinks and chocolate (together) and I feel deprived (!) if I don't have this EVERY DAY. Time for some changes :)

I am 67 and need to lose 100lbs and also a diabetic. Sugary foods are also a big problem for me. I have started and quit sparkpeople so many times. I saw this challenge and thought why not go for one more time.

Hi, I have been battling sugar along with everyone else and as i may have said my doctor hosts a weight management class and teaches to avoid sugar and bad carbs and to be aware of too much sugar in fruit as well as carbs in root vegetable. i am trying to follow this way of living as best i can while caregiving for my husband which can be very stressful so then i think --I work hard and am stressed out so i deserve sweets--have to change that mind set so I am tracking and adding exercise as much as i can as well as lots of water. also, i find keeping busy keeps my thoughts away from sweets. I am 73 years old so want to stay as healthy as i can. Live in northern Minnesota by the Canadian border, just me , my husband and my young female chocolate lab named brandy after her beautiful brown eyes. Had one knee done and one to go so sturggle to wak emoticon l her but we get it done. Georgine

Hi Everyone,

I'm Kathryn. I've been sparking for almost 6 years and I have taken this challenge once before, about a year ago. Now I'm ready for round 2. I have more control over eating sweets now but still not enough to prevent me from sabotaging my goals to lose weight; and since recent studies claim that women should consume no more than 100 gms of added sugar per day I really need to gain more control over my sweet tooth. I intend to blog my progress as I did last time and would appreciate any and all support and encouragement.

Blessings,

Hi, Heather here! I first started SP January 2013. It was going good for me in the beginning but the past 6 month has been down hill for me. Most of the time I don't have a sweet tooth but since my grandmother passed away 6 months ago, I have had a hard time. I kind of slipped away all together and put on all the weight I had lost last year. I was 5 pounds away from reaching my goal when this happened! any way i'm am getting back on track. emoticon

Hello. Lisa here, just joined. Like many others, my eating is out of control most evenings. I'm using veggies and string cheese as replacements for ice cream, baked items, and other sweets. Trying to break this recurring habit now so that once school starts (I'm an administrator) I have this well managed.

Hi everyone!

I have been a member for over 1 year now and have done well. Except for the last 3-4 wee my sugar cravings have been out of control. I have tried not buying sweets at all and end up eating everything around to try to get rid of that craving. I am hoping this challenge helps me.

I am not new to spark people but I have just returned after a year off. Eating at night especially sweets has been my downfall. So I thought this would be a great challenge for me to take. I have lost a total of 130 pounds and just recently regained 30 after a knee surgery but lost 22 within the past month. I finished the initial protocal and find myself eating that darn sugar again. So I will get a grip and with the help of SPARK I will lose it again.

Hi! I just joined SparkPeople today and this challenge is for me!! I have a huge sweet tooth and a terrible time managing it. I am at the highest weight I have ever been at and feel terrible and bloated all the time. I just started taking probiotics and want to cut out the sugar (and carbs) to see if I feel better. Glad to see I'm in good company! Hope I can conquer the sugar cravings!!

Hi everyone! I'm joining this team because I'm fed up of sugar hangovers! Sugar makes me feel ill afterwards and it's not worth it for the 10min sugar high, so I'm hoping to kick the habit once and for all!

Hi everyone. My name is Michelle and my sugar habit is out of control. During the day, I have no problem but every night I will eat anything with sugar and a lot of it. I try not to but if there's sugar anywhere in the house, I find it. It also doesn't help that my other half buys junk knowing I have this problem. He leaves it on the table where eventually I eat it. I just can't have the stuff around. I'm hoping to learn how to resist sugar and eat more healthy foods.

Hi I'm Michelle. I'm 48 and have been heavy all my life. I have quite a bit of weight to lose. This challenge is right up my alley. I crave sweets, carbs and salty stuff. Usually if I have a sweet, then I want something salty, then I want something sweet and so on. I've been using SP for a little over 3 weeks and am still on track. But I know there will be weak moments to come and I want to be as prepared as possible to face them head on.

~~ Michelle ~~

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

Its not that some people have willpower and some dont. Its that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

Hi all. I'm JoAnn, a lifelong carb and sweets lover. Those gradual 5# per year have added up over the years and now I need to prevent adding additional pounds (and take off some of the excess ones I'm carrying around). I KNOW what I need to do but find myself ignoring or avoiding making right choices when faced with that "do I? or don't I?" decision. Breaking lifelong habits is a constant battle. Joined this team challenge today because I need to be accountable and I need the support. Thanks Spark People!

I' m Tamara. AKA SWEETTOOTH10. Just joined team yesterday. (though I Have been on here of and on for YEARS!) I 'm like Merit in that my worse time is night w/ the snacking , after doing well during the day.. I think its sort of a reward to me for surviving a stressful day at work / or dealing with family issues. I know it sounds strange but I Think my sweet trigger is ...salty food! I have say , chips , and then I Want something sweet. and Of Course ,if I Have a soda, It Makes me want more sweets. I'm Hoping by doing this challenge, I get to the root of my problem, Learn how to cut back on sweets, cut some things out, find healthier substitutes for my sweet cravings, and break my plateau and lose weight again. emoticon emoticon

Hi...my name's Marit. I seem to lose all my will power at night. I can eat healthy all day with no problem, but once 8 pm comes, I become a different person. It's like I'm possessed by a sugar/carb monster and I end up binge eating. I've tried to tell people about my cravings and they suggest that I have just a little piece to satisfy the craving, but that does not work for me. Once I have a piece, the floodgates of craving open up and I have a really hard time stopping myself from having more. I'm hoping that by joining this challenge and participating in the discussions, I will be motivated to cut out my sugar/carb snacking.

Hi there. My name is Cat. I've struggled with an extreme sweet tooth as long as I can remember but my resistance has decreased considerably over the past few years. I'm 57.

I recently bought a Nutribullet and am getting more fruit and notice that my cravings subsided the first few days but now I'm back to normal.

I'm really hoping that I can get a hold of this as it sabotages all my healthy food choices otherwise and increased fitness.

Thanks for being here!

Hello--

I had my sweet tooth pretty much under control until this last year. My husband had a heart attack and triple bypass surgery, we had a couple deaths in my family, and then my beloved goddaughter (who was like a granddaughter) contracted brain cancer last August, and after 10 months of surgery and treatment, died on June 7, her sixth birthday. I am still deeply grieving for her, and for my dear friends in their awful loss. I have been attempting to alleviate that grief with candy and canned frosting--not effective in the long run, but soothing in the short term.

But now it's time to get those cravings back under control.

Good morning! I am new to this team. I do like my sweets, but sweets can be in the form of fruit. This is a great time of the year to have fresh fruit and peaches are my favorite. Don't get me wrong I also like to bake. I have found myself more and more asking the question is the sweet I am about to eat worth it. Of course I do take a bite, and decide yes or no. Most of the time it is no. Into the garbage it goes.

Hi all, I love to bake for my family and yes I do partake in eating the yummies too. That's why I am here. I don't think I go overboard but I'd like to be able to skip eating them. The bad thing is my daughter's birthday is this weekend. I thought I would get cupcakes so that there is portion control. Because I know I will want one and can't pass it up. I don't have much self control right now and am hoping to gain some with this challenge. Wish me luck!!

Hi Everyone

My name is Mary .. I am a sugar and carb addict.. I can't seem to get thru the day without lots. I have kicked it before but it seems to be harder each time. My daughters wedding in one month away and I was sure I would be down 40 lbs ... had the time.. but I have only lost 2. I know I don't feel well when I eat too much so I want to get it all straightened out so I will still be here when(if) we have grandkids.. HELP

Hi everyone!

I'm Kim and I seem not to be able get through the day without any sugar. I think the toughest part of getting it out of my diet will be kicking the habit of having something sweet in my coffee or tea.

I'm hoping this challenge will open my eyes and create better, healthier habits.

Good luck, all!

My name is Kerensa, I'm 43, diabetic and just completed the 8 week diabetic challenge on SP. Although I have done very well, I still crave sugary food off and on. Usually I just crave fresh fruit and have been okay in avoiding the processed sugar foods, I still give in here and there. I was told not to eliminate all from my diet because that will make me crave it more, and that does seem to be the issue. I hope to really find the hidden sugars and avoid them as much as possible.

Hi, I've been Sparking about 7 weeks. I chose the Sugar Challenge to make myself aware of the "hidden sugar" I may not be aware I'm eating. Like I noticed on my organic tomato soup - cane sugar. Never did it cross my mind to look there. So I've a lot to learn. Also threw away my favorite go-to zinc longenzes; that's right they are sweetened with Brown Rice Syrup. What will I find next?

My aim is to encourage, facilitate and restore health, happiness and hope in harmony with LIFE in all its fullness.

I am addicted to sweets. Used to smoke after eating, but for the last 4- yrs I eat chocolate instead.

I need to just continue to eat healthy& give up the sweets!
I do think dark chocolate is good for you... Just a little bit!

I do give into my sweet-tooth a little.
I need to get off chocolate/ sweets even w/ o a day is good for me!
Good luck. emoticon

I'm Sharon. I have recently joined SP again. I have been obsessed with sugar and I don't want to continue like that. I have cut back the last couple of weeks but need a plan after the honeymoon period wears off.

Welcome, Jill!

Hi everyone, I'm Summarah. I've known for quite some time that I have issues with eating too much sugar, particularly chocolate. I've decided that I'm not gonna let it win!

Forgive yourself and move on.

Hi I'm Cynthia and I am very much like Walt. I am fine as long as there is nothing sweet around for me to eat, but unfortunately, anytime the family gets together, everyone seems to bring a dessert. For any special occasion, we always had sweets. Even when my mom made popcorn, it was always served with fudge or chocolate syrup. Once I start eating, my common sense goes out the window. I really need to learn how to control at sweet tooth.

I have joined the team, because I consider myself a carboholic/chocoholic. I now weigh over 200 lbs again, which i told myself last year, I would never see again. I crave chocolate mainly, but anything sweet, anytime of the day. Growing up my Dad always needed desert with every meal, if there was no desert to have, it was bread and molasses. I have taken that craving with me my whole life. Now I crave it every meal, from fruit juice in the morning, to chocolate pudding and/or ice-cream at lunch time for afternoon snacks. Also, something sweet after supper. If there are no sweets to be found my alternative would be a slice of bread or a roll, graham crackers/cookies/cookie dough. You name it I love it! I am hoping this team will help me focus on my triggers and reduce the amount of sugar/carbs, I put in my mouth, emoticon , to help me reach my goal... emoticon

Can't wait til Trailer season - June 8th! :)

Hi, I am Walt and I just started this challenge. I can go weeks without sweets, but, then I tell myself one donut won't hurt. Of course I can't have just one donut (like Lays potato chips), it usually ends up being 5-6 within an hour. Then I keep eating sweets for a week or two before I can get off that rollercoaster. Hope this challenge works.

Hello I just found this team today. I am totally addicted to sugar! Since joining Sparkpeople I have my cravings under control. I was recently told I was pre-diabetic. It scared me straight you could say.

Chocolate is my biggest weakness. I do sometimes eat sugar free chocolate but only few times a week now. I have had only one day that I ate some chocolate so far.. So this challenge will be good for me to stop eating any sugar.

Hello! Just joined this team in hopes that I can get my cravings under control. I'm 31 years old and just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes last month. Needless to say I was shocked. I had no symptoms! Only had my blood sugar tested as part of a yearly physical for insurance.

Sugar, especially chocolate, is a weakness for me. I've discovered I like sugar free things but I'm trying to lose weight as well so I don't need the empty calories.

Hello, I just signed up for this and I'm feeling strangely nervous about it. I'm not, in general, a hug eater but I love sweet things, which is probably why I can't lose any weight. I have gotten a little bit better than I used to be. There was a time when I would eat desserts instead of meals...

Hi my name is Terry and I have a sugar addiction. I really need to do this. I know it is not going to be easy. I will do my best. My biggest issue is I crave candy. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't indulge in my sweets. I do limit myself and I track it all. I am going to put a post-it on my candy dish saying Not Today!!!. I have selected a few sparkpeople recipes to help curb it. In fact I found a mug chocolate cake recipe I'm going to try, plus sugarfree jello. That is my start plan.
