Hi, I am Rita and I have a severe sugar addiction. Doing my calorie tracker from this morning up to lunch I have found that not only did I surpass my allowable calorie intake, but It was mostly comprised of carbs. Hopefully I can learn some great techniques to overcome this disorder.

Hello all.I am KB. I am a lover of all things sweet. Yes I guess that makes me a sugar addict. Wow. What a wake-up call to say that and see that in writing. I guess I have been in denial...except the excess weight on my body tells the whole story. So I accept this challenge and will give it my all! emoticon

Hi all. I have a sugar PROBLEM. head it since I was in high school and it has only gotten worse over the years. I have successfully cut out all sugar, with the exception of honey and naturally occurring sugars in fruits and vegetables, for 6 months. I've been back on it for 6 months and I feel awful. I gained weight, had health issues, and feel into depression. I want to try to cut out the sugar again but am having trouble holding myself accountable. So here we are I guess.

I just joined this group today. Sugar is my way of eating my feelings and I eat my feelings Often. I definitely need to detox myself safely and learn myself that I don't have to consume sweet treats until there all gone. I'd love to establish and maintain the ability to have a taste and save some for later as well as to learn not to Seek SUGAR out when I'm having a moment. Another downfall regarding my sugar intake is grapes in a glass also known as WINE. The sweetest of course is Moscato or a Sweet Reisling. All in a nutshell is A girl needs help kicking the Sweetz!

I just joined this board today, but stopped eating sweets 4 days ago. I have no control with sweets, thinking about them all the time. I hope, with God's help, I can control them this time. Where do you get those cute markers for your goal?

Hi, I'm Lynne and sweets and sugar cravings are really bad for me lately. Don't know if its because I am getting close to 40(turning 39 in a few months) or what . So far I have made a little progress by limiting my sweet intake to holidays and weekends which if I can I try and make my own using stevia or another healthier alternative to sugar because staying away completely is too hard.

Hi My name is Sherry. I like to eat sweets right after lunch and then I want to take a nap in the afternoon. I eat sweets whenever I can if I don't plan ahead I eat whatever is around.

If I was taller I would be skinnier.

I am Betsy and I have the BIGGEST SWEET TOOTH there ever could BE! emoticon
For example~ once when I had a trainer when I was working out @ at a gym 4x/wk.,she told me that I could have a day off from watching what I eat and called it my 'Saturday' where you eat what YOU WANT! So ,ALL I ATE WAS...SUGAR!!!!
She seemed INCREDULOUS that sugar was all I would eat ,not protein emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon or fruits emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ,etc.
I told her YOU SAID I COULD EAT what I WANT !!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Anyway, I did get rid of her as my trainer and only went for 1x/wk with a NEW TRAINER+ I got on SP {this was 6 yrs ago} and within 4 1/2 MOS., I LOST the wt.!!!!!
BUT,as I started Homeschooling with my DS,I could NOT handle BOTH SP + Homeschooling ,so, I dropped SP and my SWEET TOOTH CAME BACK with a VENGEANCE ~AND WE moved to TN~ where we EAT DINNER AND DESSERT!!!! So, I found a way to do HOMESCHOOLING +SP while on Christmas break last yr. SO FAR~ 11 lbs. GONE emoticon and I have signed up for THE 5% SPRING CHALLENGE!!!
I am VERY SLOWLY learning to cut the sweets a little at a time! emoticon

I am Leann and I have a horrible sweet tooth that keeps sabotaging my efforts to lose weight and get healthy. I am an emotional eater and praying I can find a way to manage these obstacles. I started out January with tons of motivation and lost 13 pounds. Then we got invited to a birthday dinner and my diet got blown to bits. I've been struggling the past two weeks and nothing satisfies me. If I dont have sweet treats, I will go to the store and buy something. I am totally out of control where sweets are concerned. Its sickening!!! emoticon

Without change, there would be no butterflies!

Greetings to all!
Going to the beach on March 20th to marry my love of 12 years. It will just be the two of us - but - I want to look absolutely beautiful. Need to lose weight to fit in the dress! Also need to tone up my arms. All of this can be done in a month and 1/2 . . . . right??? lol.

I have faith that it will be if I can get past this sugar thing. I am happy to have found others on a similar journey. Thanks in advance for the support!

Hello! My name is Judy and I am ready to become healthier. Diabetes runs in both sides of my family. My brother who is one year younger than I am passed away due to complications from diabetes two weeks before his 52nd birthday.

Years ago I heard this scripture used for a Christian weight loss group. "He must INCREASE and I must DECREASE." This is what I need to do.

He must increase and I must decrease.

Hello, my name is Pam and I struggle with eating too much sweets in my diet, and am getting serious this year to eliminating sugar at least for a few weeks to get rid of my cravings for sugary foods. God is in control and I am turning my reigns over to Him, and giving me the desire and self-control I need to conquer these cravings for food. I am excited to be on this healthy journey and to get support from members here.

Good Morning Everyone!

My name is Leanne and I have been at this lifestyle change for many years and getting more successful everyday. I have been here (in this Sweet Tooth Issue) many times. I have gained more knowledge and become more willing to listen to my body however, i am not perfect. With all that being said -- one of my major challenges is soda, but more accurately PEPSI! So that leads me to this challenge and that is to once again eliminate soda from my lifestyle. I just joined this group yesterday, but have been off it for almost a week, but thought doing this challenge would reinforce my efforts. Have a blessed STC Day!


Living a Blessed Life!

Hello everyone, I'm Amy. I have struggled with sweets for years. I had gestational diabetes in my 20s (I am now in my 30's) and now have been told I am pre-diabetic. Both my parents are diabetic. I want to get off this sugar habit fast in hopes of preventing or at least delaying diabetes.

Hi! My name is Tracy. I just joined this sweet tooth challenge, because I can use the support and hope to give some in return. I am a diabetic with a raging sweet tooth. I know the risks of that and my blood sugar levels do stay very good most of the time. I have quit eating sweets in the past and once I've gone a little while without them, I am usually fine. Then later, I'll convince myself that just treating myself here and there is ok. I would be ok with myself if I could do that, but as soon as I do, the cravings start building and I'm eating them frequently. I tend to eat the whole thing of whatever I buy too. This time I'm having trouble stopping to eat them again. I think I'll be ok until I get in the store and end up buying something "just this once" or "one more time." We all know how that goes. So, I'm up for this challenge and it will be nice to do it together with others.

Hi I'm Joanna and I was allowed to eat as much sweets as I wanted when I was young, as I was super skinny and not gaining weight. That led me to associate sweets as an everyday behaviour that I have been having a hard time shedding. The last time I stopped eating sweets I ate way too many fruits, so I'm trying to be better and understand what triggers my sugar needs.

PS. Anyone know how to change the ticker to say lbs not kgs? It is set for lbs, but yet says (kg)??

I'm Melissa and I hope to kick my sugar habit! I know I am obsessed with sweets and I have an issue with cravings - I did not have to take the quiz to know that! Recently my trainer told me to try dark chocolate so I have been eating 1 serving of dark chocolate per day which seems to help but then I can't stop myself other times. I look forward to this challenge and the support that comes along with it!

I have been a sugar junkie all my life, but now that I am getting older, I know I definitely have to stop this craziness. Yesterday I had donuts for breakfast, donuts for lunch and for dessert after dinner! Can you believe that??

I started the challenge today and am freaking out at the idea of not changing my habits this week, but keeping track of cravings and actually writing down how much I really indulge


I have to do this. I quit smoking 15 years ago with an online support group, so I am hoping I can get my cravings under control. emoticon

Hi I'm Izzy, I misspelled my name when I entered my user name, so call me Ixy hehe. I started this challenge just today so hopefully I will make it through these four weeks (fingers crossed). I need to make a serious lifestyle change in my life, so that's why I'm here. I haven't been this heavy or had this little energy in a long time, and that has to change. Hopefully I can find some help and support here to reach my goals. I'm excited to take a step in a new direction and hopefully find a path that gives me back some energy and a little bit of a waistline. emoticon Hope everyone is having a great day today! emoticon

Hi! my name is Karen. Time to get serious about this sugar addiction. I've conquered a pepsi addiction...did a caffeine detox last year and time to look sugar in the face and say 'you don't control me anymore'. One day, one week at a time. right?

Hi, I'm Kelly and one of the things I am doing to improve my health and weight is to remove sugar from my food. I only just found this challenge but I gave up sugar on 1 June 2015. I plan to at least give it up until the end of August and see how I feel then. I still want sweet things but am meeting those desires with dietCoke…my one unhealthy thing in my diet, fruit, and dried fruit. I am very interested in how sugar affects the body and if naturally occurring sugar has the same affect. I will be reading the articles attached to this challenge to see if those types of sugars are a way to get the occasional sweet taste.

Hey there, Dawn here. I am once again trying to lose weight and hope the tools here can help. I know that support can make all the difference and joining challenges can provide focus so I am trying something new and not going it alone this time. Sweets have always been a problem for me so getting them under control would be wonderful! I am really afraid I am going to end up with diabetes if I don't make some big changes.

Hi everyone....My name is Mary Ann...and I have a super sweet tooth. I am hoping that by being active on this team I can finally break the cycle of eating so many sweets. This is a daily struggle for me. My goal is to improve my health and still eat sweets in moderation. Let the journey begin!!

Be like a duck - keep calm and unruffled on the surface, but paddle like the devil underneath.

The journey is the reward.

Hello,
My name is Jennifer and my cravings have been in control over me for far too long. I am here to gain some knowledge, acquire the right tools and develop a support network to help me take back control of my body. Coke zero and various desserts are my weaknesses, What I really want to accomplish by the end of these four weeks is to have greatly reduced my soda habit.

HI - my name is Jenn - and Sugar addiction is a constant battle for me - mostly in the form of carbs and sugary snacks - there are times that I have no link between being mindful and putting that stuff into my mouth - especially at night! I have lost 55 lbs and I am close to my goal weight but my old habits have been creeping back in and I am scared. Joined this challenge to break the night time reaching of sugary carb filled snacks at night and get back on track!! Nice to meet all of you!!

My name is Brenda and I really have to get control over this 'sweet' tooth of mine. I have always gone to sugar when I am stressed, depressed or even happy. I want off the merry-go-round and to claim my life back. Seems I am powerless over this stuff :-(



Cheers!

Hi, I'm grandie 13 and 62. Sugar is a huge problem for me and my sweet tooth really calls out to me at night. I tried to eat fruit, but will still go for that cookie, candy or anything sweet. Salty things is beginning to be a sub for sugar and I know that is not good. That's why I am here.

Hi, I am looking forward to this challenge and cutting back on my sweet tooth. I care for my grandchildren and am hoping to curb their sweet tooth's as well. In fact the entire family can use a little help in that department. I have survived the last two days without any candy or cookies which is great for me. I usually slip up about this time of day but I've been holding strong. I hope to receive my email about this challenge soon so excited to get started. emoticon

First goal ~ 50 by the end of August

Hi, I'm Catherine and I have joined this team before, a long time ago, but I now feel as though I can actually do this. I am on day 8 of being sugary dessert free. I have not completely eliminated all sugar though. I still eat peanut butter, ketchup, diet soda, gum, etc. But I have not had ANY desserts or even cereal bars with chocolate and sugar.

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Hi, I am Kathleen from Florida. I am definitely in the right place. Not only do I have a sweet tooth when stressed--to reward myself when I lose weight(stupid I know)--when I am feeling good--WELL just about anything can alert my sweet tooth! If I am good and do not eat any sweets for a while and start getting my weight moving down; I reward myself with a binge usually on ice cream and I am right back up there weight wise!

Last week I was stressed and went to the grocery store and bought all the things I like to eat thinking I could portion and control my intake--WRONG! UP THE SCALE GOES AGAIN!

I need to stop the yoyo effect and my hand to mouth disease now--Help me Please!

Hi my name is Fran, I am 67 years old, retired. I have always had a problem controlling sweets. I have celiac disease so I don't eat gluten or dairy. I have afib and need to get this 50 lbs off to control that issue? Glad to be here and want to work the challenge to free me of this obsession.

Hello, my name is Beverly and I have just joined the Sweet Tooth Challenge. I feel that I am trully a sugar addict and have recently been diagnosed with pre-diabetes. I am 52 years old and my doctor has assured me that if I loose weight I may be able to "head off" the diabetes in the future. I crave sugar and junk food but I have made a commitment to myself to start a new lifestyle of cutting back on my sugar, wheat, and diary. I plan to eat proteins, vegetables, and fruits. However, I know it is going to be hard as I crave sugar not only everyday but many times a day!

I didn't start craving sweets until I hit middle age. With two parents who suffered from Type II Diabetes as senior citizens, I'm worried that I might go down that same road. Looking to make some positive changes.

HI I am Tami, I am a Vegan that is working on eating Clean and cutting out Sugar where I can. I successfully lost 100 pounds with Sparks people but put back on 30. I have noticed that even on a Vegan diet there are a lot of places where sugar is hiding and I think that is how those 30 pounds snuck back on. So I am working on taking the weight back off so I can fit in my wardrobe. I refuse to buy bigger cloths, but I love buying smaller cloths. :)

I'm Vicki, aka HEALTHIER-VICKI. I'm 58 and have about 80 lbs.
I badly need to lose. For me, I'm at the stage in my life where looking back no longer works for me.
So I'm looking forward and taking it one day at a time, some days, one meal at a time.

Greetings from Ohio. I'm a "cookie-aholic". I can say no to almost anything else, but cookies are my favorite! My family loves them too, so I buy or bake them weekly. I also like sugar-free Klondikes.

So day before my surgery. Finally decided to treat myself to a cement mixer from Culvers. It was soooo sweet and I couldn't even eat all of it. I didn't even want to eat the rest. Wow now that's a miracle. That is just way to awesome!

When I'm tempted to buy anything sugary at the store i think it thru. If I don't have it at home I won't be able to eat it. I remember all the things I have learned on SP. Usually if I just walk off and continue with my shopping I will leave without buying any. Then of course when I'm at home and I want something sweet I'm to lazy to go get anything!

When everything goes all fine, that one cup of Starbucks to go through Monday at work or a piece of sweet thing, breaks it all, once I put a little in my mouth craving just starts.... Want more and more... Takes a while to be able to get back... So this is my biggest challenge I think I am sugar addicted... Trying to figure how it all started, probably my brain somehow makes a connection between happiness and sugar... I am becoming 37 this Sep and 236 pound. From being 110 pound martial arts fighter when I was 20, after all pills given by doctors for migraine headaches, anemia and hormonal imbalance, of course the balance of my body and emotions all messed up... It took at least 15 years to learn what means what, and now working on myself to fix it... And my biggest difficulty is sugar cravings.
