Good Job !! It is so hard. I have to cut it all out at once to get past the cravings or I can't do it. NO cookies, candy, obvious sugar treats. No fastfood or it triggers the sugar too.

I don't look at back of labels because it's the treats that do me in.

I've sat down and cried during a sugar detox because I want it so bad. I get the jitters and feel like a drug addict. It's tough. When I make it 2 weeks, the cravings stop and I"m a new person. I have found out that after 4 weeks, I can have a treat but no more than twice a week or I've triggered it all over again. I then start the sugar binging and have to fight it all over again. I usually stick to no more than 1 sugar treat a week and I have no problems. Just have to stick to it !! Usually the holidays at two relations in the same week is what messes me up. Taking home sweet leftovers is always a mistake because I'll eat it more than one time that week.

If you don't love yourself....how can you expect others to.

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.

Whoa, emoticon job!!! And what an inspiration!
Sugar is definitely a worse issue than fat, at least in my case. I can have healthy fats, but once I OD on sugar, I become a mess: focus dulled, confusion, unhealthy sleep patterns, etc, etc., so I can REALLY relate!
Thanks for your honesty in sharing. For myself, I certainly identify.

Awesome achievement Kentuckywoman! Thanks for sharing your story. Iím sometimes ridiculed when I admit that Iím addicted to junkfood so itís good to connect with others who are dealing with the same difficult battle. Please tell us what it was like for you the first few days without the sugar.

Iím very much like Nmyers64. Iíll pig out on junk until I feel sick. I especially crave junkfood after Iíve already eaten a full meal, which means Iím already full when I start binging.

Donít give up Nmyers64. It gets easier after the first week. Promise.


Put on some upbeat music.
If you find yourself dancing in your seat, take it a step further. Get up and start dancing on your feet.
You'll burn more calories that way.

Chelle

Olivia, veggie's are a must. Not only are they filling, but they have very useful carbs. I also eat rinsed black beans, just about everyday.

NMYERS64...the best way to begin is just START. I know its not easy, but the longer you can stay away from the sweets the more powerful you become.

I am inspired by your message-- I eat a pint of ice cream at a time along with donuts and candy. I continue eating "sweets" until I make myself sick. I signed up for sweet tooth challange-- first of this week, but haven't been doing very well.-- I am going to continue trying to "cut out" the sugar!!
Thank you for your message!!

Wow, what an achievement! It must be great to feel all the benefits : )
Just make sure you stock up on veggies to balance out not eating the fruit. Got to get those 5 freggies a day!

I joined the ''Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge" some time ago, but have to admit, I'd get started then return to the sweet stuff. However as of yesterday I have 19 days being without sugar, even fruit. I have found there are some fruits watermelon, bananas, cantaloupe, peaches, pears, to name a few that can set my sweet tooth off just as if I ate a piece of chocolate. So 19 days ago I began a 21 day challenge with a friend on line I was a couple days behind her in getting started, and I have to admit that first week, I was wishing I would just keel over and die, BUT, I am very pleased to say that today that is NOT the case. Since being off the sugar I am sleeping better, I am having less Arthritis pain. and I have even gotten to that point where I NEVER WANT TO GO BACK TO THAT DRUG OF CHOICE.
I just wanted to let anyone out there that thinks ''I'm never going to be able to kick this habit, you can. I was the woman who would sit and eat a half gallon or more of ice cream at one sitting or a whole box or even two boxes of candy in one day. I am so not proud of admitting to these things, but it is the truth, I don't have to wonder why I gained 40 pounds. Nineteen days being off sugar and even though my friend and I said 21 days, we have both decided to keep this good thing going. So far for the month of July I have lost 14 pounds, and I'm very proud of that.

Joan
