This is my second week of the challenge, and I am quite proud of myself. I have quit sugar cold turkey just as I have with smoking ( which has been 1 month 12 days since I had a cigarette). I substitute fresh fruit or a yogurt for sweets. I no longer have sugar on my cereal I substitute with a banana.I walk at least once a day and have begun ab exercises along with hand weights. I have also increased my water intake and I feel great :)

Fortunately I don't add sugar to my foods and I don't use sugary drinks. My sugar comes from eating processed foods. I am starting to make more foods from scratch that I would normally buy. Healthier and tastier !

Baked goods are hard for me. Not baked goods to buy but what I bake. I have not been baking and it is tough. Purchased cookies and cakes do not entice me. Things like Girl Scout Cookies and Camp Fire Mints will be making their way in my area soon. I order the cookies from a friend but have them sent to the troops. I do not know anyone with the candy so that is a good deal.

I love chocolate but try not to keep it in our home. One thing I discovered though is that if you have to have chocolate it is better to have one piece of really good chocolate. A small piece of the good stuff is often satisfying enough for me.

I started last week with this challenge. I find that drinking a lot of water, has helped to decrease cravings, help improve impulse splurging and I don't need it as much. It has felt wonderful!

I am going to read the labels on everything and do my best to make home made instead of pre-packaged.
I am going to write a menu for a week or two and stick with it plus I want to eat more whole and real foods.(Fruits,veggies,etc.)

I see a lot of people are eating just a little candy to help with cravings. For me that makes it worse; I go back and get more candy. It seems for me it's better not to start.

I'm restarting after letting this drop and my journal is full of "ate a chocolate - because I can." So apparently not having it around is going to be key.

I find since I am eating less sugar that my tastes have changed; some things I really loved don't taste that good any more. This is a little sad for some things (fancy chocolates); less so for others (fruit yogurt). At least when I eat sugar now I know I'm doing it, and I'm no longer borderline pre-diabetic.

Week 2 plan of action:

Stay out of the office candy jar
No trips to Yogurtland
Avoid all of the office celabration cakes.

Shoot, when I write it down, just 3 of them, it's not a wonder I have gained so much weight, emoticon

It depends on the person. For me, it works out great. I'm getting control of the sugar cravings. The sugar free sweeteners just made going cold turkey a lot less miserable.

Hey everyone! I hope everybody is fairing well with this challenge

I went cold turkey with my sugar too! I don't drink soda and I phased out processed foods when I joined Sparkpeople. Right now after reading some of the goals for this week I will switch over to muesli instead of cereal, since that is a great big hidden sugar source and I need to find an alternative for my soy milk because the unsweetened stuff is absolutely vile. I allow myself dates and I think that is going to stay in there for the remainder of this challenge since I don't eat it in excess and I still stay within my carbohydrate goals for the day without any problems. I have Stevia at home but I haven't really found a use for it since I drink my tea and coffee unsweetened and black, maybe if I bake some time in the distant future LOL.

I went cold turkey with sugar on 1 June but this is my second week of the challenge. Since I started being 'sugar free' I have not knowingly consumed sugar and have read labels obsessively but even then, it can sneak up on you. I am astonished that refried beans have sugar in them, and shoe peg corn. I've started making my own salad dressings/dips to use with the mountain of raw veggies that I tend to eat every day. If you are going sugar free, are you allowing yourself sweeteners? I am wondering if I will have lost a taste for sweet things at the end of this challenge or if the sweeteners will keep it alive. Does anyone have any wisdom on this?

I just started week 2. I never have received an action email from a moderator. Has anyone else? I had one day last week that I ate dessert at a picnic. The other thing with sugar is my salad dressing and I finished that bottle today so I will buy a sugar free one this week.

Finished week 2. Normally I don't have a problem with sugar except for a couple times a month and my main trigger is chocolate in any form -- candy, cake, donuts, etc. I had a chocolate chip cookie yesterday but that is first major sugar of the month. I have been sticking to natural fruit juice sugar like Outshine popcicles.

I just finished week two. I was eating peppermint candies because it satisfies my sweet tooth to some degree. But even that was crazy. I don't need to eat six peppermint candies at a time! So I am cutting that to no more that two a day! That is the plan. I did cut out the pop, cookies and sweet tea this week!

After writing in my food journal, I have decided that I need to cut way back on pop. So this week my plan is no pop, sweet tea, and my other downfall-cookies!

My triggers are soda, candy, and low blood sugar.

A cold fizzy drink can be so refreshing on a hot day. Candy has become an issue due to the unbelievable amount of stress I've been under. I don't feel bad about having chocolate at the end of my day, but there are healthier options I could go for instead such as pure dark chocolate.

Low blood sugar makes me crave sweets, which is a problem when grocery shopping. It makes it harder to avoid pastry. I need to eat before I shop.

Today was my first day of week two and I was able to change my coffee to a less sugary option, although it still had sugar. I'm going to try and ween off of it. I also had a few reese's pieces.. Not my best work, but I had a stressful day and this challenge wasn't really my primary thought. I'll do better tomorrow!

The kids and I have been doing marvelously at choosing healther, less processed food at home. Hard to pick it if it doesn't exist!! The thing that got us this weekend was not being home and at the mercy of someone else's cooking. That was hard. Did good, but could have done better. So, we talked about it and discussed things that we could do in the future when that happens again, like next weekend! The no sugar thing is hard, and now that we had some again, it feels like my body is going to do the withdrawal thing again, but hopefully it won't last as long this time!

I had a good day yesterday. I've been finding it hard to eliminate sugar completely (though I have been cutting down). But I decided yesterday I would not give in to sweets/cake/etc. And then I got to work (I work at a hospital) and found out it was Interntaional Nurses Day...which meant there were cakes, scones, muffins, etc EVERYWHERE. Not just in the tearoom and not just at lunchtime.

But I resisted the multiple temptations and did not give in to my sugar craving. Even when my busy day meant I had no time for my healthy morning tea I did not use that as an excuse to justify sugar. Lets see if I can make this a two-day streak!

Didn't do well on the quiz...seems like there is some form of sugar in so many foods....
My triggers are frustration, not only with myself, but, at work...I have to do a better job of letting it go!!
I'm choosing better snacks....Kind bars, fig bars (non gmo)
I am trying to cut out some of the sugar...I don't drink pop...candy is at a bare min...
it's a challenge to break bad habits...but,

I took the sugar quiz. Very enlightening. 7/10, not bad. I did learn some hidden sources of sugar. I am going to use agave more this week.

Last night, desert was red white and blue fruit, with no added sugar. We all enjoyed it.

I am still eating fruit as my first choice for snack. I have it out on the counter so I do not go looking behind doors to find something!

Starting week 2! I took the quiz and was surprised that I knew more than I thought I would. I read the articles and found a few pointers from them. I don't eat a lot of sugar throughout the day. I use plain greek yogurt instead of the flavored choices. I only use 1 tsp of sugar in my coffee in the morning. I did see on the list that flavored oatmeals have added sugar and that is one that I do eat in the morning. I am going to look into different options for oatmeal. I am sure that I can find some things (internet is great) that will be a better, healthier replacement. I even use fresh ground peanut better to cut back on sugar. Surprised where you can find hidden sugar. I am making better choices and necessary changes in my life to cut back on unwanted and unnecessary sugars.

Triggers to avoid this week. Evening time, I have a list of things that I can do instead of snacking in the evening. As long as I can keep myself busy I wont get into my bored eating. Highly salty foods also can trigger but I am still not sure if that is because of the salty foods or the guilt from eating them. :P

I have become a bit more mindful of sugar, but still struggle with it. Yesterday I ate frozen dates because I had rid my house of pretty much all other stackable sweets. I did account for them in my daily calorie range, but that was definitely an out of control type of behavior.

emoticon Nothing has gone right so far. The company I work for was bought out, So I had to go to another company wher my clients were.( I'm a CNA working at a home health aide agency) Which means I had to go through the whole new job process again and it has been making me very anxious to where I make myself sick. Yesterday my client totally stressed me out with certin things she wanted me to do.
By the time I got out of there I immediately went to get a milk shake, that was the only thing on my mind. I felt at that moment that nutritious food was not going to do. I hade a headache and I discovered one day that Icecream calms down my headache a lot. If I don't take care of my headaches right away then they become migraines. I haven't been able to do my walkabout challenge for 2 days now. I'm going to do it today. I believe today will be a calmer day. I plan to go for a walk in the park after work. I should also be able to get back on track with the tame your Sweettooth challenge. Pray for me.

How has Week 2 been going? - It's been going pretty well so far. I've managed to completely avoid all of the Easter candy at work all weekend, so I'm very proud of myself for that.

What did you learn about sugar this week? - That I miss it, but right now avoiding candy is probably a smart move for me because I'm not sure I'd be able to stop at just one piece.

Do you have any sugar "triggers"? If so, what? - Boredom and stress eating are triggers for me to want candy.

How do you plan to avoid your triggers? - My mother in law is making us Easter baskets tomorrow and I requested no candy in mine, and sweet stuff like dried fruit instead :)

Hopefully I can do this. Today I ate a serving of red licorce for 190 calories and I don't even like it! I am still withing my calorie limits, but now I can't have something healthy and stay within my limit. Next time I see something with added sugar, i hope I can ask myself if I really want it or is it emotional or boredom? Is there something that I would like more? This challege is great, I know I can have whatever I want still today and if I do go over my calorie limit it will be healthy,

You should stick to the foods that are good for you. Let people know that you don't want the unhealthy foods around you. You want to eat healthy and would appreciate some cooperation from them. Good luck.

I am planning on cutting back on candy, cake, and ice cream. I am not really an ice cream person or cake unless it's special occasion but I am a candy nut. The issue I have most is I live with others and can not control what comes in the house and sits on the counter staring me in the face. That and we celebrate 4 birthdays in the month of March :-/ only 1 down so far. It's really hard for me to pass a candy sitting out on the counter "for me, from my mom". She knows I am trying to lose weight and she is too, but it seems she turned it into a competition and tries to slow my weight loss by tempting me into treats (maybe I am just paranoid??). Anyhow, that's my plan. I think when I crave something or feel the need for something sweet I will try to start drinking a bottle of water and eating a piece of delicious fruit first to maybe curb the craving. Also the idea of sugar free Jello is a good one. I enjoy yogurt and fruit for a fantastic desert!

Best wishes on reducing foods from the staff room. It might help if you take your own food and reduce the temptations you will find there.

I've had a much better day, today. I've been doing this a long time, and I really, really don't know how to prevent a snack attack; there seems to be many things that will trigger one. 8-/

Day 1 of Week 2. Since I can't find that magic potion, I'm going to try the suggestion to just wait it out, and hope it passes. I've a problem with making substitutes that have as many or more calories than the real thing because I'll eat twice or more of the substitute while trying to satisfy that craving. This (trying to get the cravings under control) is such a pain!
Good Luck to us all during week two!

I just finished week one yesterday and today is the first day of week two. The biggest problem for me is going to be when I go back to school tomorrow. We always seem to have sugary treats in the staffroom that I find really difficult to avoid and resist. The week before half term, I actually made a new meal on my nutrition tracker and tracked how many calories I was consuming from the staffroom snacks alone and it was depressing. So this week I'm going to focus on reducing the amount of food I consume from the staffroom over all.

To be rich is not to count what is in your bank account, but what is in your heart.

The mint tea seems to be working. Stay with that, I'm going to try it too.

Week 2 has been okay so far. Am still struggling with sugar cravings. The 3 sugar sources I usually reach for are candy, cookies, and doughnuts. I have now purged all of the sugar from my house. Makes me feel anxious and I'm still looking for something sweet, particularly at the end of a meal and at the end of the day. I tend to eat most of my sugar in the evening. But now it's gone and I'm switching to fruit. I thought I would/could switch to a 70% cocoa chocolate bar, thinking it contained less sugar, and portion it out, but that didn't work either. I ate the entire thing in 2 days. What I find is working for me is ending my day with a cup of hot mint tea. It's very soothing, relaxes me, smells great, and I find after having sipped a cup of mint tea, my sugar cravings calm down. Must be the mint. So I'm going with it. And then I'm going to bed. Night y'all.
