We don't drink much soda, maybe once a week, and found a healthier kind called Zevia that has Stevia instead of sugar. I can live without though.
We have stopped eating all grains and sugars but the sugars were the hardest for me.

Yes, sugar is addictive and it is a poison to your body. White flower, anything that has been highly processed. I am just starting to learn how to eat. It does take time to switch. In the meantime I will just limit the amount, it seems emoticon to work better for me. As for your daughter i hope that there is a way to get her to minimize the use of sugar. I hope she does not like soda drinks, you have to be a chemist to understand what is in it.

started at 187 on Monday. This morning was 182, however I seem to go easy between 187 and 182 in the past. My problem is going below 180.......

It is my fourth day, my scale showed 178...hope it does nut stay or go up again....hu....hu....

Violetta, you are so right about sugar being the enemy (for all of us). I just wrote a blog about my daughter having to fight it too now, because I did not realize the danger of it when she was little. It's a drug as bad as many illegal drugs.
Saw your mail. Thanks! emoticon

Tom, thank you. Yes I will take day by day. The Food Tracker is great. Just realized how much more carbs I am consuming. My problem is coffee with cream and sugar. Sugar is my enemy.
This is my first day, will post as I go.

Welcome,
There is a lot of support and info here. Do a lot of reading and question everything. A lot of conventional wisdom about weight loss and heart disease is wrong. You are your own best advocate. emoticon
