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.

If it's there, I'll eat it. I might just nibble, say, a few M&M's every time I pass the bowl, or I might have 2 cupcakes in a short period of time if they're easily seen. Night time is the worst for me with sweets.

I now have not only my husband who is a sugar junkie, but his mother and one of his sisters are staying with us for a few months while the settle into the new part of the country and take care of some health concerns. They are also sugar junkies. Between the 3 of them we have an over abundance of cakes, pies, candies, chocolates, muffins, well, you get the idea.

When I can get them to keep these items in the pantry or their own bedrooms (husband excluded, of course) it's easier for me. But seeing them out in the open makes it difficult.

I do keep fresh fruit on the counter, and I grab it easily during the day and am able to pass the sweets. Like I said, night time seems to be the hardest for me.

I am re-starting low carb as well. I have been off the band wagon for 3 mo and since I have been too busy/stressed at work, I haven't been to the gym. Just waiting out a cold so I can go back but I can try to better control my eating and that is what I am gonna do!

I ended up throwing most of my Christmas treats away because I just couldn't stop once I had a bit of sugar : ( horribly, horribly wasteful, but it's better than gaining another 10lbs back from it all.

I tried low carb and did well for a while but really missed my fruit and cereal. I've been following the spark people diabetes nutrition plan for 6 months now and I have lowered by blood sugar by about 30 points. I have plenty to eat and I'm never hungry but during the holidays when there are so many sweets around I have gotten back into some bad habits. The really stupid thing is that when I eat sweets I suffer from constant physical pain. You would think that that in itself would prevent me from indulging but it hasn't. I'm really hoping that committing to this challenge and communicating with people on this team will help.

Low carb really does help! I also got rid of all the sweet goodies at home (at least the ones that tempt me).

I have cut WAY back on my gain intake, and have also noticed a significant decline in my fruit intake. I need to explore this low-carb thing more.

I am in total agreement with the low carb... I found over the holidays not sticking to low carb is why I had the sugar cravings!! Definitely makes a difference with the sugar cravings being back on track and watching my carb intake.

I returned to my low carb eating. It seems to really work for me. on so many levels. After a few days I seem to get over my sugar cravings and I am never hungry.

Well, having all these leftover Christmas goodies sure doesn't make things any easier! I found out that I actually have more issues during the workweek than I do on the weekends. I start work at 5 am, so seem to have a mid-morning sugar craving. Today is grocery shopping for the first time since I started the challenge. Will go after I eat breakfast and try to make smart choices. If I don't have it in the house I can't eat it.
