Three days no sweets. I am not exaggerating when I say this is a miracle.

Hello Sweet people, I joined this Challenge probably a year ago. I eat candy everyday and I know it is going to kill me, that and diet soda. I am on a 14 day retreat from sweets starting today. I have committed myself and told my family. I really really need to do this. Thanks for this Challenge and I vow to post everyday. Sweets cannot be my go to when things get tough at work. Breath, Breath, Breath. I will do this. Thanks all.

Oh my goodness! I have found my new go-to goodie when I'm having a chocolate & sweet attack. That Jello chocolate sugar-free and fat-free jello hit the spot. It satisfied my craving and I will plan on getting more packages of that to have on hand. And it's only 80 calories for 1/2 cup serving. I think I'll try different flavors. emoticon

Wanted something sweet & chocolatey today and decided to make a box of sugar free chocolate pudding for our dessert for dinner tonight. Haven't had it yet but am sure thinking of having it soon. I know I need to measure it out though.

I understand it is wasteful, but I am proud of you for NOT eating the whole thing. That is hard to do. Whatever it is can you freeze the unused portion, or split it with someone.

Don't be so hard on yourself. You didn't reach this level of sugar consumption overnight but stick with your plan. 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.

Not that this always works, but......how about a 'sweet' jar, where you put all the money you'd NORMALLY use on sweets/junk food & at the end of a certain period of time (month, 3 months, yearly or whatever), have a goal to buy something you'd REALLY like! Something you THINK you might not be able to afford: a new (smaller) piece of clothing, membership to a gym, an iPod downloaded with exercise music or inspirational meditations, etc.
Just a thought......

I have found a mixture of sweet & healthy cold cereals mixed together: 0.25 cups each of Fiber One original, Fiber One Caramel Delight, Cascadian Farms Oats & Honey cereal, Total Whole Grain Flakes, and Post Grape Nuts, with Fat Free skim milk to satisfy my sweet tooth and provide lots of nutrition. Strawberries, bananas, red seedless grapes, pineapple, watermelon blueberries and canteloupe are good fruit substitutes for me. Sometimes I drink a no calorie, no sugar energy drink (has artificial sweeteners).

I still succumb to low nutrition, high sugar foods (mostly ice cream) in high volumes occasionally, but not as much as previously. My sweet cravings are definitely not mastered, but I am gaining more control.

I get so discouraged emoticon with being addicted to sweet stuff. between that and potato chips some days are worse than others. I love orange juice which is sugar. I find myself buying something sweet sometimes, taking one or two bites then throwing it away. On a limited income that is a waste of $$$. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated emoticon
