Hello everyone. My name is Jo and I am, and probably always have been, addicted to sugar. I got myself off it once in the past for 18 months, thought I had it beat but then tasted a little bit of sugar and my addiction kicked in again for over 10 years now. Sugar is the last thing I should be eating as I'm diabetic. I'm really struggling with this issue. I remember it was extremely difficult to get off it before, but I'm ready and determined to do it again and am hoping this challenge and all of you will help me do this.

Could use a little inspiration and help and hopefully I can do the same for someone else. Thanks, fellow sparkers!

HI I'm April! I'm new, but I need to do this! I'm an accountant and our office is over stocked with sweets! Walking in here is liking walking into a candy store and it's all free!!! Every time I try to limit myself I can never stick to it. If I say I can't have any I do much better than trying to just have a little!

Anyone have any tips let me know!

I'm new to SparkPeople and am really excited to kick my sugar habit. I used to be a pastry chef before I became a stay at home Mom. I don't even bake anymore because I will eat everything I make! My goal is to lose 40 pounds and be healthy again.

Hello! My name is Lyn, and I am a type 1 diabetic. I love sweet foods, and salty ones, too. Eating anything that tastes too good makes my blood glucose go through the roof. This year, I would like to start eating healthier, because as I get older, my diabetes takes more of a toll on my body. I have had type 1 diabetes for 41 years now. I enjoy going for long walks, and working out on my elliptical. :)

Hi my name is Tee. I joined group because I could not stop craving/eating sweets after New Year. I have a few health conditions and do not want to become diabetic again. My first day of no sweets was hardest and I slipped once. Second day was easier since I made pack and go healthy snacks to eat during day. I have lost 3 lbs in four days of this challenge

Hi, I'm Becky. If it's sweet, it's fair game. After watching the the documentary "Fed Up" last night (about sugar being in so much of what we eat and how addictive it is), and I know I need to get my cravings under control. Looking forward to hearing how others cope and thrive during this challenge!

Happy to have found this group and hoping it will help get me back on track. I have a horrible suger addiction and it's made worse by stress. I did a detox once for a month and was able to avoid it the whole time. I'm hoping to get back on track and clean up my diet. Stress and lack of sleep are my biggest triggers and being a mom and full time student certainly add to that. Going to focus on just one day at a time.

Hi. I am a true sugarholic, but I've cut back to just using it in my drinks, and only occasionally. I recently discovered stevia with inulin. Does this count as a sugar?

This is the perfect team for me. I need big help with my afternoon/evening sweet snacks. So far in the past week I have been in the team I have drastically reduced my chocolate intake, I only indulged 3 times with MUCH smaller amounts than I normally would have. However, I think that because it was the holidays there was more chocolate around and if it was a regular time of year I could have done better. I have already noticed that I rarely even think about chocolate or sweets anymore and actually think more about and look more forward to fruit for snacks! It makes me feel good that I wont have a 'Sugar Hangover' in the morning after also :D

Amazing what improvements can happen in just a week!

Good Luck Everyone

I joined this team to get over my sweet tooth cravings, because it will help me reach my goal of losing 10% of my body weight. Research shows losing 10% makes a tremendous health improvement.

I confess that even though I'm a daily Spark People participant, and I've lost 40 pounds, I didn't lose any weight in 2014. I blog daily. I wear a fitbit. I've got to get back to tracking my food starting today, New Year's Day, my motto is "Write it Before I Bite it!"

I'm a daily exerciser. I like zumba and other dance classes. I lift weights. I had a personal trainer for 10 weeks and really made progress! I also do pt exercises for my knees (so I can dance painlessly).

I am in the same place. There are still some chocolate chip cookies lurking in the cupboard. I feel like scarfing them all down just so I don't have to think about them. :) Three years ago I lost 70 lbs. and the last year has seen a return of about 15 of them. I don't want to go backwards either. This is a good place to start. It seems like my downfall was letting myself eat more sweets. So I'm all about taming that sweet tooth. We can do this!!

I need to get my control over eating back... I was doing really well last summer and lost 30 lbs..... Only had 10 lbs to goal... but now I'm returning to old habits with winter, less activity, more comfort food, and holiday SWEETS! I just ate the last piece of pie for breakfast.. aughhh.... (Well at least I don't have to look at it any longer..) My weight is coming back too quickly, and i have worked too hard to going backward with weight gain. I hope the support here will put me back on track!

Hello everyone,
My name is Leslie and I'm 42 y.o. I live in Canada. I have a moderately wicked sweet tooth, as do my husband and 13 y.o. daughter.
I've been blessed with a good metabolism and hadn't struggled with my weight, but my luck is running out. I've started peri - menopause and my weight is creeping up. I'm only 5 feet tall so every pound makes a real difference.
Also I have a genetic issue which impacts my mobility. I've had my right hip replaced and am on the wait list for the left. My back also has serious issues so I'm limited in my exercise ability. I still work full-time (out of financial necessity) and use a scooter at work.
I need to get my weight under control and improve my cardiovascular health before my next surgery.
Thanks for reading 😊

Several years ago I was a Raw Vegan. I cut all sugar out of my diet and used Medjool dates when sweetener was required. I stopped drinking coffee and soda. If I took a bite of something sweet it tasted horribly sweet.
Well I've started drinking (decaf) coffee again and I sweeten it with stevia and then add sweetened creamer. This is really the worst thing I do....unless confronted with a box of Whitmans Chocolates with my name on them. lol. Any way...I feel like I need to give up coffee again because this jolt of sweetness so early in the morning is setting me up for more sweetness during the day. The holidays have been hard on me, mostly because my daughter's boyfriend's mom kept sending platters of cookies and pies....I confess I ate way too many of them I did not gain weight but I didn't lose it either.
So that's where I stand.

I'm going to give this a try. I feel sugar just leads to more cravings. I also want to give up wine in the evening and refined carbs. They are all basically sugar.

I need to fit back into my jeans!

Good luck everyone.

Hi, I'm Caroline, been on Spark People for a couple of years but not very consistently. Christmas is my downfall, every damn year. The only way I can not eat sweet stuff is if it's not in the house, and every Christmas there are such special goodies like chocolate lebekuchen, and cinnamon cookies in the shops, and if I can't resist whilst I'm shopping , then that's it, and it will be eaten. But, I have given away one box of chocolates I was given for Christmas, and I will also give away the tub of Roses and the chocolate orange I was given. Maybe it's mean and ungrateful, but I can't stop them being given to me, and I figure giving them away is better than just throwing them in the bin. Hoping that once all the bad stuff is gone, I can go back to cutting out as much sugar as possible all over again. Till Easter

emoticon I read a few of the introductions and it looks like we all have our work cut out for us. I know I am ready to,get back to a healthy diet and it will still be a few days before all of the sweet holiday treats are gone. I also know I do not feel as good and vibrant when I eat like that instead of eating well and exercising which makes me feel awesome! I am hoping the challenge will help me to focus on that fact. emoticon

Hi! My name is Tosia (pronounced Tosha).

My go to sweets are chocolate kisses. OR chocolate anything, actually. I swear I could survive on chocolate kisses and nothing else.

I have also used sweet n low for about 20 years in my daily 3 cups of tea and I would like to get off of it.

As a compromise, I am now eating Weight Watchers Chocolate Raspberry ice cream bars as dessert after dinner--1 or 2 a night.

I eat an apple, banana, and some frozen fruit every day also as a replacement sweet.

Its hard to get veggies in anywhere. Any advice? Thanks so much!

My name is Cheryl from sunny Las Vegas and I am addicted to sugar. Unfortunately, not only does it make fat, it causes nausea, extreme fatigue, bolting, and increased joint pain. All the symptoms result in less incentive to do normal activities and exercise.

Hi, my name's Rachel and I'm a sugarholic. I get jittery if I don't have a soda. I have to say, sodas are my weakness. I'll sometimes have 4 a day. I'm trying my best to cut back on them but it's difficult. I can stay away from other sweets for the most part. Unless my family brings them home, but I eat the little snacks in moderation.

Hi! I'm Stephanie, and I'm a sugar addict! (All say: Hi, Stephanie) Sorry, I couldn't resist.

All joking aside, I do have a serious problem with ice cream and baked goods. I don't have issues with all sugary substances, which I think is a good thing. I have been called a cookie snob, because even with the sugar addiction, I'm still very picky about the ice cream and baked goods I eat. I have almost no idea what portion control means when it comes to my favorite cookies or cakes. I'm partial to the homemade stuff too. So I can't just have a little around the house or I'll eat all of it!

My usual MO to cut out the sugar is to avoid it. You know..."out of sight. out of mind." I just won't bring it into the house. However, I have found it much harder recently to avoid the sweets or to just eat a little. I think the challenge will help.

I am Christina and I definitely have a sweet tooth! While not as strong as it used to be (I could eat a whole half gallon of ice cream without blinking an eye) but it is still an addiction that is hard to break. So, I am officially taking the first step to control what I eat instead of what I eat controlling me.

Kicking the pounds away!

Hi I'm Mary and I'm a sugar addict. I am trying very hard to stop reaching for sugary foods when I am tired and/or stressed out. Hopefully, after sugar detox I will say "I'm Mary and I'm an exercise addict." One step at a time. Best wishes to everyone!

Hi I'm Annie and I have been on Spark People for about four years. I have come to a point where it is very difficult for me to lose any weight at all even when I stay in my calorie range and exercise. I am hoping that watching my sugar intake will help me lose some weight.

I have been wanting to do a sugar detox for a long time but kept putting it off because I didn't have the confidence that I'd succeed. I guess today I just decided to go for it, take it one day at a time, learn how to control my sugar cravings, and learn something about myself in the process. I know that if I cut back on sugar, I will have the health and physique I want. I'm glad I'm doing this with others. Your posts inspire me!

Menopause and bad habits along with 20 pounds have crept into my life. 4 years ago I was in the best shape of my life, eating clean and working out hard. Sweets are my weakness and it's not about emotional eating, stress or boredom. I just prefer the taste of chocolate, cookies and sweets over healthy food. I have hit bottom, I can't fit into any of my clothes and I refuse to buy new clothes, so getting healthy is my only option.

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.

Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right.

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,
Nillapepsi (Sheila) :-)

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! I know that I have near zero self control when it comes to sweets. I also know that it is time to change that. I am very excited about this challenge and changing this bad habit!

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.
