Good job DEBJAE! I am on to my second week; going into my third and really realizing how sugar can sneak its way into our systems - I had a small soy latte from Starbucks the other day thinking, soy? - okay, coffee/espresso? - okay. But the soy milk they used was vanilla and so sugary! Much more than i remembered. Since "quitting" sugar, i have found too that i do not crave it, most of the time anyway, and that when i do have something that has sugar in it, it tastes so much more overpowering, and too sickly sweet. I was craving chocolate last night, but i think it was only becasue I saw a DOVE chocolate commercial on tv and I melted, but luckily did not have any chocolate in the house, so could not be tempted. Keep up the good fight! :)
So far so good. I mindlessly added a tablespoon of sugar in my large mug of coffee two days ago. I later thought to myself "hey dumby, you're not supposed to be adding any sugar!" Other than that, I have done very well; I haven't had any candy or cakes/cookies. What's funny to me is that my cravings are pretty much non existent. When they do occur, I need to be mindful of what the triggers are and write them down. I have used equal (one or two packets) on the other two occasions.
Everything we do in life is a choice...I can't blame others for my thoughts or actions.
