I'm with you -- I'd love to find sugar revolting also!!
Things are often not as good as they look, or as good as I thought they would be -- but even when I'm eating it and telling myself it isn't that great, I'm STILL eating it! Why in the world can't I just put it down and walk away??!! I'm working on it...

Laughed out loud when I saw this message post title because IT'S SO TRUE!
But I have found that it's never quite as yummy as it looks (or maybe it is, but only for a few seconds). It's just reminding your brain that it's not worth it in the long run. And boy, that's hard.
I've heard loving sugar is like having an addiction, and once you wean yourself, in time, you don't even miss it. Some people even say sugar becomes sweeter, almost to the point of being revolting! As someone who can't understand when people say, "Boy, that's too sweet," I'd like to experience revolting sugar myself.
Good example @SYD. lol! (That's not to say imagine yourself being zapped, yet it works.) I don't believe in deprivation, and when looking at (delicious) foods I find having a strong positive image of myself without indulging (and yes, overindulging) and meeting my goals really helps.
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.
I learned that it may look good but I feel so lousy after eating it that it is not worth the effort anymore. Don't get me wrong i have not eliminated sugar from my eating plan I just do not crave it anymore . I am sure you can get through this time. it is just a few more days. It may help to start a spark streak of days you successful resist eating extra sugar. Just a thought. I am sure you will be successful in this challenge.
