Yesterday was my first day of the challenge. I had sweet tooth cravings after dinner. I tried to ignore the craving but finally I gave in. Luckily, I had the calories and carbs left to accommodate my cravings. I measured my portion sizes and was able to stay within my calorie and carb allotment and logged in nutrition tracker. My goal for the week was to eat correct portion sizes if I had sweets and I did! I feel good!

I usually prefer the slow and gradual method...one step at a time, one day at a time.

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.

If you cut out the sugar you will stop craving it after a week or two. This worked for me when I was doing the 4 weeks challenge. I had lots of fruit and brought carrot sticks into work to munch on after meals.

It also works the other way around though - I reintroduced sugar by making a batch of baked oatmeal with chocolate chips and I had crazy cravings for a week.

I rid the pantry (and hiding places) of ALL sugar about 3 months ago.
The first 10 days was rough. After that it was a relief.
Quitting sugary sweets was almost as difficult as quitting smoking.
So glad I quit cold turkey.

The best idea was from here, get rid of anything with sugar. I will admit, I removed it from the home I brought into work. Money is so tight I couldn't wrap my head around just throwing it out. Everyone @ work who needed a little something sweet knew where they were. All was taken so I'm saved, and since it was avail to over 60 people nobody had the opportunity to over eat. Detox for me was almost a full 2 weeks & now when my calories are tracked I'm amazed how much I actually ate. You can kick it & your in the right place!

Watch out world! Here I come

Eat more veggies and fruit it calms the overall sugar craving and keeps you full.
You are correct that you did this to yourself but together we can help encourage each other to be successful. emoticon

I know what all of you are talking about I can't help myself on potato chips cause I got the craving for something salting and of course the sweets.I thought if I can have 1 oz. of something salting that will be okay right well I was wrong I wind up eating more that I shouldn't have and that goes the same thing with the sweets too. You know what I'm thinking about doing fixing my own potato chips and my own sweets and that way I don't feel guilted or I feel like Oh, Jennifer you can't have that baby because you on a diet and you want to be healthy and happy about yourself. What do you think about that idea like it?There is alot of wonderful recipes here and I just have to get with it and take this very seriously its about me and my healthy I'm the only one can do this no one else but me. I did this to myself I'm the one who put the food in my mouth no one did that but me. Thank you for reading this I'm sorry this is long and sorry if I got too personal about myself also. emoticon
