You are so right...sugar is everywhere and it is impossible to that you can get away from sugar in one form or another. The goal is to handle it and not the other way around! emoticon

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.

Hi everyone. Boy do I love this thread. I go back and forth with trying moderation (which at times is possible) to staying away from it completely which I feel great with. My emotions - not wanting to do something hard, feeling tired, feeling empty and untaken care of, angry or anxious are all triggers. Once I start the craving is unconquerable. It's really crazy. If I feel so good when I'm off of it than why do I do it all over again? I want to have a normal relationship with all foods but I'm not sure I can eat this regularly. It's like such a reward in my mind but it's not true, you know? Anyway, I was off this week big time so I guess I'm starting week two over. Just gonna stay away from it today in the forms of desserts. I do not expect myself to eliminate it completely. Thanks for listening!

I also love anything with sugar. Try having only one or two sweets a day and make them small servings. you can cut back more later. If I don't have sugar, I feel better, but it takes about 3 days off it for me to stop craving it. You can do it. My DH says I am a nicer person to be around when I stay off the sugar! Awww.
Don't give up! emoticon

The choice is mine. I am in charge of me. Live healthy.

You both can definitely do it, and changing just one thing today is better than what you did yesterday, right? I know that I'll never have zero sugar in my diet, but I have managed to cut out the candy and treats that I don't need, at least for the past month, which is a huge success for me. Create reasonable goals and build on success! :)

I am also a sugar addict. I joined this challenge a week ago and so far have gained back 4 lbs. all of it from eating sugar....why does trying to make a decision for myself to NOT eat sugar drive me into the arms of sugar?

I am trying again today to take a stand and eat correctly. I've done this before.......I can do it again, right? right!!

Congrats This is awesome. The first step in achieving a goal is to be aware of your limitations and accepting what they are and how you will over come is HUGE!

I am a sugar addict, no way around it. I have tried for the life of me to stay away from sugar, it is so hard!!!! I have read books, followed diets and just plain have given in. Oh wait, not today, I am trying to be realistic in the area of sugar, but the truth is that IT IS EVERYWHERE...

So for today I am going to try one tiny second at a time to stay away from any extra sugar.... I am not going to lead you or me too believe that I am not going to eat any sugar. The truth is I am at this point incapable of that. No sense in lying to myself or you. What I can do is be mindful of what I am eating.....

I am willing to go slow and steady to lose this weight for good.... Be healthy, Happy and just plain positive about life.
