I came to this challenge to find answer on how to control my sugar and to find others who will be supportive.

My week is better, but I struggled with wanting extra vanilla in my coffee! I finally bought sugar free and it wasn't bad.

I have a difficult time with my sugar cravings when I am at work. I now know where the candy stash is and have a hard time keeping my hands out of the jar!

I hope to have a better understanding of what sugar does to my body and how much sugar really is in the carbs I eat. Looking for healthier menu ideas!

What brings you to this challenge? I love cooking and eating healthy foods, but I can't seem to control my sweet tooth. I'm hoping this challenge offers me some new tools.

How is your week going? Most days are pretty good! I eat a healthy breakfast (oatmeal and yogurt), and then leftovers (stuffed pepper soup) for lunch. Then I usually make a healthy dinner. And apple for a snack. But more and more I am also having ice cream and chocolate and baked goods. And I'm gaining weight when I want to lose - so badly.

What have you learned about your sugar cravings so far? That I need help.

What do you hope to accomplish at the end of 4 weeks? Push past this hurdle, and have some new healthy habits.

Sugar is definitely my problem, and then, of course, not eating right.....need to chg = day one.

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:28

Hi there! I have been decreasing the amount of sugar I eat for two weeks now. I have been following the program by Jorge Cruise which has you eating more protein and good fat while counting sugar grams. I must say my cravings for sugar have gone from a 9 to a 3 and I am very satisfied with my meals. I am also following the Beck Diet Solution which helps with behavior modification and teaches you how to think as a thin person. I have much more energy and the bloat is going down! Looking forward to these next 4 weeks!

I don't know if I ever posted on this team, but I took the test for sugar cravings and I tested out SUPER HIGH!!!!! So I'm hoping this team can give me some ideas for avoiding sweets. I know that if you stop eating them, the cravings stop, but I have an emotional craving for sweets, so that is not going away. I'm starting over again today and keeping a journal so I can better understand what is emotionally going on.

What brings you to this challenge? I always HAVE to have something sweet and my weight is NOT going down. I've only been going up and I feel pretty hopeless.

How is your week going? Starting off pretty bad. I've been overeating like crazy and more than half the time I'm not even hungry. I wish I could get it under control.

What have you learned about your sugar cravings so far? That I'm not the only one. I consider myself a sugar addict and this is been a life struggle.

What do you hope to accomplish at the end of 4 weeks? Join the goals, check in every day, and keep active in discussion. Eventually with lots of practice, it's bound to sink in (hopefully).

I need to get away from sugar. Sugar comes mostly in the form of anything covered in chocolate from the Bulk Barn store. About 18 months ago I started to work with a nutritionist. I was off sugar and eating a nutrient diet for about 6 months before I started 'wandering'. Over the past year I have slipped back to old habits when I have been confronted with stressful situations. I have gained back 30 of the 40 pounds I lost and most importantly I don't feel as well as I did before. I have an appointment with that nutritionist again this week. I haven't seen her since my dad passed in August. I expect to be embarrassed. I also expect to get back on track. Fingers crossed. Toes too.

My plan: Consume 1 organic, dark chocolate square per day, if I have an overwhelming urge to eat sweets. That way, I'm not saying "none" but rather "moderation."

This week I learned a lot about when I crave the sweets. On week day mornings I want caffeine And I don't drink coffee and I don't like the taste of diet soda, so I was drinking a large soda. I would crave a chocolate treat again late afternoon or the drive home from work. I had my period start this week so my chocolate craving was worse. I started consistently tracking my food intake this week again and realized how many of my calories come from beverages. I drank 64 oz of water a day or more this week and that partially helped my sweet beverage problem. My goal for this weekend is to remove the sweets from the cupboards. I realized a small serving of a sweet May be enough to get rid of the craving. I am also looking for healthier snack options that are still satisfying. Look forward to week 2 of the challenge

Am just starting out on my sugar-free journey. Just signed up to spark last night - love the app too! I have Sarah Wilson's "I quit sugar" books that are just fabulous. Have done a shop that took absolutely forever but still have to clean out the cupboards of sugary stuff.
I have teenage girls that are a little bit on board!! I think they are maybe a bit torn between being supportive and hoping it doesn't last emoticon

It's great hearing about the first week challenge and how people are handling things. I'm learning alot. If I could have followed my wishes and put a big blanket over my head throughout the month of December and not come out until about mid-January,l I would have been in good shape. But no......I couldn't do that and keep my job! lol. Great job everybody. Baby steps to our goals. We didn't develop those cravings overnight. We learned them over time, so it will take time to "tame" the shrew!!

Yesterday was a really hard day for me, I wanted some sugar, candy, cookies anything sweet. I cut up two oranges and ate them, they were really good, later on I ate some dried apples from a Christmas fruit tray. I made it through one more day without sugar. Whew.

The first part of the week I did well. I know that stress and lack of sleep, staying up late to complete school work, are my biggest triggers and I did pretty well...until Friday and Saturday. Friday was dinner w/ friends and Saturday was spent all day at my desk working... I'm not going to beat myself up about it. It's all a learning lesson. Just keep moving forward with baby steps.

I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.

Hi,
I am still reading literature and figuring out what to cut first. I need to clean out my cupboards from Xmas because my kids were here and there are items in my kitchen that I wouldn't normally eat.

Slow and steady wins the race.

I started this team because the months of November and December I was out of control on my sweets. Now that work is started back( I work at a college) my cravings for something sweet has increased. I know that I eat sweets when I am stressed. Sometimes, I do really good and other times I do not. This last week I had pie, cupcakes and a piece of cake. I am hoping to improved on my will power to say no.

Day 2 sugar free. I went to Vons, it's $5 Friday. They had slices of ice cream cake 2-$5.00. I wanted some, I opened the cold case freezer door , picked it up and put the cake back in. A small victory. I just kept saying to myself, no sugar, no sugar no sugar.

This is Day 5 of not having any sugar of any kind. I have eaten some stevia-sweetened things, which has no effect on my blood sugar, and does not cause any sugar or carb cravings. So far so good!

I purged my kitchen of sugar. I threw away my white sugar and even the plastic container I keep it in. I cut a big hole in the 2 pound bag of brown sugar and put it down the garbage disposal. My plan was to make caramels out of the brown sugar. I can whip up fudge or caramels really fast. No more. I want to kill the sugar urge in me.

Hi everyone. Sweets can be so triggering, and emotions (for me) can trigger wanting sweets. I am working on being more present, more aware of my feelings and my reactions so that I will make healthier choices and avoid the sugary treats.

How is everyone doing? Week 1 is challenging, but so worth it!

JoFindsHealth, what is the role of the Candy Person? Is it to have treats available for everyone? If so perhaps you could have things that you’re not fond of, and also gum in the candy bowl. Also, could the role be shared by others?

CindyPray, you’re doing great. Having an apple and gum are such good choices.

Hi Jofindshealth...

I too love to bake, and I find chewing gum while baking really stops the licks, bites & tastes. During the Holidays I did so much baking in my kitchen as a activity with friends & family that I keep a pack of gum right on the counter. It really works for me.

Day 3 - Sugar Free. I'm still having times of sugar cravings, especially around 3pm, and after dinner when I was having a dessert over the Holidays.

I chose an apple at 3pm, and enjoyed each bite.

I chose dry roasted nuts after dinner. It worked.

I'm starting with avoiding pop beginning January 1st. I never kept much pop in the house until the last few months which I got "for company". Needless to say I drank most of it. So...I've stocked up on sparkling water to get my fizz craving settled, but I still won't be drinking pop. I also keep a bottle of water in the car, so I'm not tempted to get pop when I get gas.

My next challenges to overcome:
1) I'm the "candy lady" at work. I inherited it, and only reason I've kept it up is because it allows me to visit with people that I otherwise wouldn't talk to. But this also means I constantly have candy on my desk, and therefore I see it ALL.DAY.LONG. I usually don't give in until after lunch, but I usually have at least 3 of the mini candy bars, which needs to STOP!

2) I LOVE to bake and try new recipes. Enough said.

Suggestions?

I'm looking forward to gaining control over sugar, rather than sugar controlling me. After meals if I don't have a sweet I will think about it until I find myself in the kitchen scarfing something without actually even tasting it.

Here's to day 1! emoticon emoticon

Yesterday I was able to pass on the candies passed right under my nose. But I did have a glass of champagne. Alcohol is another dietary self-sabotage I'm trying to kick.

Situational sugar craving here also. Day 3 starting, and still on track.....Still motivated by new yr goals. Pat on my back for refusing a friend's contribution of pie yesterday at a group meeting. I took the approach of thinking that she is just trying to clean out her frig, and that pie had been hanging around for a long time overdue. I imagined that it was dried out and stale.

Today was pretty good. Eating vanilla greek yogurt (80 cals) with 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries and a few chopped pecans seems to be helping with the sugar cravings. The sweetness of the blueberries and the sourness of the yogurt, plus the crunch of the nuts is so yummy!

Never give up!

I'm also a member of the "Struggles with Situational Sugar" club! I have a lovely bunch of ladies at the office who bring in treats in the break room. And there's a candy dish. I have a hard time walking past all this.

Sometimes I picture a big sweaty hand just reached into the candy dish before me. Aversion therapy.

At the moment I have very little control on my sugar cravings if it's right in front of me. I made the mistake of keeping around a box of Christmas cookies that were a gift, and scarfed several without even thinking about it. The remaining cookies got regifted! Hopefully if I stay smart about bringing sugar in the house, my willpower will improve. emoticon

So far I have realized that my cravings are stronger in the afternoon and evening. I've managed to have a fruit at one of those times.....so far haven't conquered the mid afternoon or after dinner craving.......any suggestions? If I have cheese with my coffee in the afternoon, is that better than a sweet?

I have situational struggles with sugar according to the quiz. I think that is quite true. Usually I see something that will having me craving sweets or am around them. I think if I can keep my favorites out of the house I'll be able to do good with this challenge!

We had a great meeting at work today and everyone had decided that we are going to do a Biggest Loser competition. Our candy gal has decided that in order to support us she will no longer leave a candy dish out but a dish full of peanuts/almonds. Very nice of her :)

I, too, am a situational sugar eater. But I know I follow a pattern....my body starts to crave a sweet at certain times and then I am obsessed till I get it.....I think this may be a hard habit to break. I'm hoping this challenge will start me on the right path.

The quiz said I was a situational sugar person. So true. I can go without for awhile then if an event or food triggers me I eat it till it's gone.

I love love love my sweets!!!!! I too have a lady at work who has candy out All the time, it is so bothersome, but i have been looking at it when i walk by and stating to myself "you don't need it." It's hard, because my own mother who is diabetic as well eats candy and has it around all the time too. I just can't seem to get away from it at all. Help, suggestions. ugh

I, too, have a significant sweet tooth. We have a few women in my workplace that keep candy on their desk ALL the time. I've decided that I will no longer stop at their desk. My biggest problem is lattes.

My challenge goal - Stay away from the candy dishes and find an alternative to lattes.

I have a significant sweet tooth, and I want to reduce the amount of sugar I take so I can get control of my cravings. I am tired of having my brain constantly thinking of high calorie food filled with sugar running my life...

The quiz says I'm a situational sugar consumer. So true! I can do a pretty good job of controlling my sweets at home, but have a hard time at work where the sweets abound. It's a big challenge as I so enjoy the treats.

So glad to see this challenge! My biggest problem is sweets and we know they're full of carbs -- I can't resist. Hoping this challenge will help me learn new habits about sweets and gain control over my cravings. I'm here to get it done!

According to the quiz I have a situational sweet tooth. Yeah, that sounds about right. If I am in a situation where there is something sweet, I need to have it. I want to lessen my sweet tooth in the hopes that I will finally be able to take off these excess pounds and keep them off. My ultimate goal is to reach a healthy weight by my birthday in 2016. That gives me 13 months to take off about 73 pounds.

Hey group, well I realize I do have a sweet tooth but it isn't as bad as I had thought. For example I eat just a small bit of some candy and then I am ok. I hope this challenge will tame my sweet tooth completely

Okay, ready to start. Sugar is a HUGE problem for me in the evenings after dinner and often after lunch I crave chocolote! Now that Christmas is over and done with and most of the sweets have letf the house, lets see if I can replace those evening cravings with Fruit :)
