been without sugary treats 5 months( since jan. 1) the last two days had to travel 1200 miles and didnt have very good choices on what i could eat in a hurry. we kept moving. at hotel we ate waffles with only syrup they had. i thought sure the sugary syrup would kill me but i didnt even notice. it didnt seem sweet and i didnt crave other sweets. thank goodness. trucking on, back to good eating as soon as i got home.

keep on trucking

Food Hangover is exactly right! Hubby and I used to chow down on chips in front of the telly every Saturday night. I always felt awful on Sunday morning. Felt soooo much better when I stopped doing that!

I had a similar issue. Had a small bowl of ice cream with blueberries on Monday evening. All week long I've battled cravings for sugar. Maybe drinking more water will help.

I also connect with the food hangover phrase. emoticon

I'm loving the phrase "food hangover" as well. I'm going to borrow that for future use...lol!

Hang in there! Better days are coming...just keep pushing! 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.

Don't kick yourself too hard -- we've all been there and done that. Important thing is to get back on program as soon as possible and try to learn something that may help next time.

Food hangover! Ha! I have one of those today too! And my pants? Way too tight today.

Hopefully we can both stay ON the wagon for the rest of the week. Good luck! :)

I'm right there with ya! Told myself for Mother's Day, I would treat myself to a 1/2 dessert from the buffet table but that triggered the monster and off I went! Didn't stop til my head hit the pillow. SO hard! Today, back on the wagon but feel like I'm in a sugar fog- like a food hangover. OW!

Slow and steady wins the race!

I wouldn't say I was actually on the no-sugar wagon. It's more like I was off the all-sugar-all-the-time wagon for two weeks and then blamo! I jumped back on that wagon. :(

I've been doing so well - not grazing at work, only having small amounts of sugar for dessert after dinner (if any at all). Then I allowed myself to have a Twix on Friday and I've been CRAVING sugar all weekend. Sunday I made my super-secret recipe brownies for a friend for Mother's Day and could NOT stop eating them (do not fear - the friend happens to be living with us currently, and it being her first Mother's Day away from her son, I figured I'd make her something extra special. She ate as many as I did...). I brought the leftovers to work today, but all I can think about today is

SUGAR AND CHOCOLATE.

Sigh.

I'm doing my best to drink lots of water and snack on healthy stuff. It's just a struggle today.

Who knew a little sugar on Friday could lead to this?!?! Yikes!
