I, too, have come to the realization that sugar is like poison to me. It seems the only way I can lose is to completely cut it out (including fruit--yikes!!---the hardest part, especially in the summer!). I'm starting Day 2 of no sugar and, like you, I lose about 1/2 lb. day when I don't. My question to myself is "why do I start again!?"
Type 2 Diabetes in our house so we are very sugar free. I also find it is easier to just avoid anything with sugar or high fructose corn syrup. We have stabalized our weight after 12 months.
That doesn't mean that the M&M's don't call my name at the grocery store.

very little sugar and grains and losing sbout half a pound most days.. feeling mush more energetic. I am starting to understand how sugar affects my eating choices and energy levels.
I have cut down tremendously but not completely quit. I am still working on it.
All things are possible if you only believe, even losing 15 pounds
Good luck with that. I have managed to cut back to a minimum over that last few years.
