day 5 of my first week, and it is really a bad day, I came home from the gym and had to lay down, not because I was weak from hunger, because I knew if I stayed in the kitchen, I would eat some candy, and gold fish, I mean I am honestly in a bad way today,
I am trying to completely stay off candy, cookies, cake, pie, anything like that as well as snacks like gold fish, nuts I plan on eating in moderation, but I have not yet.
very strange, I had lunch, a chicken breast, fresh tomato and some pinto beans, about 2 hours ago, and I am almost shaking. like hungry. but not.

Saturday is going to be rough for me. I'm going to be home alone. Hope my willpower holds up.

I had a rough day yesterday too, and ate 3 cookies followed by a piece of chocolate! Week 2 is going to be rough! Any tips you can give me (once you start) would be great! I am just starting week 1.

I had a really tough time already today and I'm mad at myself...instead of one cookie, I chose to eat three. And now I feel like crap (as expected). What are the steps for week 2?! I'd like a head start...I already know I have a problem!!

i never tried dates either...good suggestion. Thank you!

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.

So I'm supposed to be starting week 3, but I (ahem) somehow didn't see the step for week 2 that we had to start cutting out sugar. So, week 2 starts today for me and I am nervous. It's hard to imagine never eating "real" desserts again or even only having them in moderation.

I agree HVALLEE with the eating every 2-3 hours. I find that I'm hungry every 2-3 hours anyway. I eat when I'm hungry so that I don't start to crave the other stuff. The sugar cravings will come and go I've found. I just have some substitutions available, like fruit and sugar free chocolate pudding. I've never actually tried dates, though. I may do that.

The most important thing is to not let yourself get hungry. Being hungry is a reaction to low sugar in your blood, thats why we crave sugar! Make sure you eat every 2-3 hours to keep blood sugars stable. Good luck!

I agree with the date fix. They take care of a sugar craving and you only need one or two.

I use dates. they are naturally very sweet. you can get them at most grocery stores with the dried fruit. You only need 1 or 2 to stop the sweet craving.

Had a really hard time with the cravings today. Filled it for a while with a chocolate fiber one bar. Then I found some otter pops. Fills that sugar crave, but at least they don't have fat. I guess. Any suggestions would be helpful. emoticon
