I really want to get into a phase wherein I can control my cravings. Any ideas from anyone?

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.

I hear you! The more I try to cut back, the more I can believe that sugar is addicting and having a little just makes me want to have more. I say this after drinking a coke and eating a miniature candy bar. Maybe I do need to cut it all out and see how that goes. In the past I have managed to cut so far back that sugar lost its hold and didn't seem that appealing to me. Then something happens and I let it creep back in and its hold on me is as tight as ever.

I can't control the sugar. I either have a gulp of cola or an iced tea or 2 spoons of sugar in my coffee. And if nothing else, I add some sugar to my plain yoghurt. I went grocery shopping the other day and bought myself a chocolate bar, thinking I'll have one piece a time when I exercise for 30 minutes or more. I ended up eating the whole bar in one sitting. Help!! :(

chocolate, caramel. nut candy was my big treat almost every day I would buy diet soda and a candy to eat on the way home. no more, haven't had a candy bar since jan. 1.or a diet soda. the hard thing for me will be ice cream on really hot days. before I could eat half the box. was brought up always having ice cream in the house. I have bought fruit bars to have. they are only 35, 40 calories each and they are really good . buy atkins protein bars to use as candy bars most only have 1 gram of sugar and good amt. of protein.

keep on trucking

Things to avoid - well chocolate is a huge one. Rather than cut it out, I want to focus on eating dark chocolate in small amounts. I found a recipe for chocolate covered bananas I want to try as a treat. I'm hoping that it will be a good replacement for icecream. I do want to avoid soda. That is another struggle for me. I do good for a while, then somehow it slips back in too often.

The challenge for me is finding healthy alternatives to satisfy my cravings. Lots of good resources here. I look forward to hearing of your successes in healthy living.

I usually reach for ice cream, junky chocolate, and sugary snack foods when I'm feeling meh. I thought I could handle the temptation and have them "just once in a while", but I obviously can't! I think I'll stop buying these things for a while.

Happy, healthy, and a force to be reckoned with.
