You will mess up at the beginning. You need to be mindful of what you need to eat and as the challenge continues you will get better at it.

Best wishes.

I have had some difficulty staying on track and I have been experiencing some bloating and some other stomach issues. Thank you for bringing this subject up.
It helps me to get back on track.

Good for you JSKOVGARD1..that inspires me! GGarza, I know what you mean and while I think its good that my body reminds me when I don't make good choices (with that bloated feeling) I have not really learned how to manage the making better choices part. I made banana soft serve "ice cream" from one of those recipes associated with this thread and it was good but got me thinking (and unfortunately doing) sweets last night. This morning I feel bloated and showed a +3 pounds on my weekly weigh in. Bummer.

I am not ashamed of the gospel.....Romans 1:16

Hi, I also have this problem. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. The MD did a Insulin resistance lab test and I tested normal on my blood sugar but had 20% more insulin in my blood to maintain a normal sugar then a healthy person. He put me on Metformin but I have since lost most of the weight and try to keep away from sugar and processed carbs. I have a binge eating disorder so slip at times and really regret it because I feel awful for hours after. I was told that I probably will be diabetic in time because the damage that I had already done to my beta cells ( those that produce insulin) but I could hopefully with maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle put it off for years and who knows maybe ward it off entirely. I am not perfect but keep fighting the good fight. emoticon

I went to get checked and thankfully it's not diabetes. He said that after some time your stomach gets used to eating clean so when you eat fatty foods again it has a harder time digesting it. The dizziness he wasn't sure and said that it may have been because of the lack of sleep. It hasn't happened again but I am being very careful.

GGARZA2013, It sounds like diabetes to me even though I am not a Doctor or Nurse I do know something about health. Being thirsty with no reason is a high sign of Diabetes. I hope you do not have it but you should have your Doctor look into it soon.

I am not eating sweets every day so this is not a challenge for me, but I do want to stop eating as many sweets as I do now.

Week 2 seemed to be a bit harder than I thought. I started out well, cutting out and down on the sweets. I managed to have one sugar cookie from the dozen my mother-in-law brought home. Then, I met up with an old friend and we went out for a night on the town. She wanted to go to Dairy Queen and I thought I could handle it. I had a small Banana Cream Pie blizzard. The next day I felt awful. I felt dizzy and bloated all day.

I don't know if this was normal or coincidence but it cured me for the rest of the week. I was doing fine again until we made brownies. The same thing happened again. I felt dizzy and out of sorts. I also developed an immense thirst.

Does anyone know if this is normal?

Instead of sugary cereals in the morning, I have a banana. Instead of having a quick and easy candy bar for snack, I have an apple. It's working. Slow but steady gains the top of the mountain.

I'm having a hard time finding good fruit. Stores carry plenty but they taste bland. They look ripe but taste green. Going to organic sections mean shelling out dough that's not easy to come by. I try to use farmers markets but with my hours and their locations, they are either closed by the time I get there or are on days that I can't. One fruit and veggie stand I pass by on my way home from work is inconsistent. I'm not quitting, just expressing the challenges in my particular area. I've even tried to frozen but they aren't always reliable for taste and freshness. Onward and upward!

I'm with you on the fruit, Somar.

Eventually your palate seems to re-educate itself away from the 'sugary' taste. I had a flat white from a coffee chain and, although, it was claimed to be sugar-free, I could taste sweetness in it.

I'm making real progress on liberating myself from turning to sugary stuff as a comfort fix!

Can't see it but I'm sure my liver is saying, 'Thank you!!'

Today's the last day of week 3. Today, I'm more conscientious about what I snack on. In the past, it wouldn't have been a problem for me to munch on high sugar, high fat snacks. Now, I ask the important question... am I hungry? Because if I am, then I should be seeking out the right things.

Yes, time has gone very quickly.
There have been ups and downs throughout
this challenge. There are many emotional
feelings involved with the world of sweets.
If we are happy we want to celebrate with sweets
and if we are sad or angry sweets makes us feel better and soothes us.
It is going to continue to be a challenge with sweets
We will just have to learn to deal with it by having it in moderation.
Good luck to all of us who have to deal with it. emoticon

It's amazing how Week 3, for me, is almost over - 2 more days.

I was having some major cravings yesterday. I think there were some emotions popping up.
emoticon
In the end, I ate a little bit of a sugary snack (not processed or refined). It took the edge off long enough for me to figure out what was going on. It's amazing how we use sweets to satisfy certain emotions. Still woke up weighing less than yesterday so that was a relief.

You're right Somar12570.

That's what I want to do. I want to manage it without feeling like I am restricted. When I feel restricted I tend to lose control and have everything that I shouldn't.
I continue to manage my sugar but I do partake of it in moderation.

I think, for me, I'm wanting to continue something that's manageable. I don't want total restriction because that makes me feel worse when I fail. I want moderation. I bought a Silly Zak's bar yesterday. Ate half then and half today. I guess I'm not just conquering a sweet tooth but the guilt for having one.

Starting week three again, Did well last week with still tracking ,even my goofs, and eating more fruit, but have to work on having a less sugary pantry, and swaps for my sweet cravings. I Think Reading labels religiously and reading what others are swapping will help a lot, this time around.

To be happy and healthy in body, mind and spirit ,and set the best example for them, so that my children will be too. That's what I aspire to., to be the best ME I can be!

So far the sugar swap by using gum instead of treat while at work is working fine! I still have that urge after eating meals so I bought these thin cookies that are awesome. 1 cookie has like 27 calorie so I can eat 2 without feeling like I ate a lot and still have a little sugar.
The biggest challenge I am having is Juice. I like Juice but after reading some of the ingredients in that sneaky sugar article I can't find a good juice that atleast doesn't have 1 of those ingredients. It's frustrating and no I don't like a V8!

Last week was a ruff one-4 days staying someone very close in the hospital. Vending machines need to stock healthy food. Thank goodness for the drugstore down the street.

I'm starting week 3 today. This will help getting back on track with fruit and veggies. If last week was a test and I passed - this week will be much easier.

On my way to a healthier life.

Being aware of sugar. Also of how much sugar goes in in my mouth is what I learned from this challange.

Week three - took me two weeks, but I did well overall. Slipped up with some late night ice cream, but fresh fruit is really helping to provide an alternative to cookies and such.

Today starting week 3, and its been going good. before I started week 3 I had a chocolate bar and I had to drink lots of water after that because the taste was nasty. so I believe I am done with sweet. I will find other ways if the craving comes up again. I love my fruit and vegetables.

Week 3 is over and I did horribly. I do fine with my regular food every day- I eat healthy and stay within my calorie range but I have had one sweet treat at least five days this week. It has not been that big of a treat but it is sugary none the less. I think I might have to allow myself one a day every few days instead of being off it altogether because being off it altogether just makes me want it more!

Almost to the end of week three for me.
Had a couple bad days this week when I went overboard on the snacks. Still trying to substitute fruit and other good snacks for the cookies, candy and cakes. Finding I am eating more grains and carbs though. Need to find some balance somewhere.

Much easier this week with the cravings. Making better choices with swapping food. Really would like my husband to quit bringing choc. chip cookies in to the house.

Improving with the sugar intake, but not with carbs and protein. So what I'm not eating in sugar, I'm probably substituting it with too much protein and good carbs. In other words, portion control is dis-controlled. Got up a pound.
