emoticonUN_TAMED andemoticon to SparkPeople and the team challenge...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle. emoticon emoticon

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Have a small cookbook I got years ago through vegetarian society, Addie's Sugar-Less cookbook (which is funny, since my MIL's name was Addy), which uses fruit as the sweetener (bananas, dates, prunes, raisins, apples): apple crisp, cakes, quick breads, pies, banana custard, etc. Of course, one has to be careful of ODing on ANYTHING, at least I do; but I either make it for a group & have a little for myself or if it's a cake/bread, I cut into individual portions & freeze. Bon Appťtit! emoticon

Check the labels on any foodstuff you buy - its amazing what they sneak sugar into. I do a lot of my own cooking as well so this helps as I know exactly what's gone into my meals. Don't be tempted by things like honey for a while either - its still sweet and therefore still feeding that addiction. You can do it!

Thatís why, when Iím eating my best, I donít have to worry about labels because I make my meals/snacks using basic ingredients. Smoothies from frozen fruits Iíve cut up & use kefir; lots of fresh fruits/veggies; beans, fish, nuts & seeds & whole grains: brown rice, quinoa, cous cous, etc.
Problem lies when Iím NOT treating my body to the best whole foods out there.
One of the BEST desserts I've ever had is a combination of blended frozen bananas & strawberries........that's it! Best sub for ice cream EVER! emoticon

It's the hidden sugars in food that I have to really watch.

emoticon Sugar was never an issue for me until I hit menopause....now it calls me in the night. For now, I've had to give it up completely or I go overboard. I'm hoping that eventually, I can treat myself and not go crazy.

We can do this!

Ok, so we all know the problem isn't really sugar, it's the whole addition thing!

Hey, I'm Un_tamed, new to group and Sparkpeople. I'm 26 and from the UK (Birmingham to be exact). I've been tracking my food religiously over the last two weeks and am horrified at just how much sugar is in my diet. I was originally going to make the sleep challenge the one I followed first, but after analyzing my nutrition tracker it is CLEAR that if I can beat the sugar monkey, I'll be way further on my journey than if I don't.

So here's to getting control over that white power!
