I am eliminating wine. While not officially a sweet, my blood sugars go crazy when I drink it.
I can handle a little chocolate, but the wine is too much for me.

Oh, I love the plan... emoticon

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.

The important things are how much sugar is really in things like FiberOne Bars and what is the quality of the other ingredients? FiberOne bars look like they don't have a lot of sugar, but I understand that is pretty much all a labeling game and one can find lots of different sugars in the ingredient list. I believe manufacturers only have to list "simple sugar" as sugar. The other sugars the add can fly below the radar. Also, the fiber is essentially fake fiber, being mostly inulin, which is really another sugar.

Ultimately, you can tell the bad sweets from the good by the way they make you feel.

The only processed 'pastry' that I have 'snuck' in the past 6.5 (almost 7 weeks ;-) ) is a FiberOne Brownie. In that past I have tried to focus on 'healthier sweets' like Fiber One Protein Bars, or the FiberOne Brownies, or stick to the 100 calorie packs of yogurt covered pretzels....but I would still want sweets! Lost of Sweets!!!!! So I had to eliminate all that stuff. Sometimes when I get the urge in the evening, I'll eat a small bowl of cereal (we use skim milk) or greek yogurt or the Ricotta Cheese dessert. But I'm afraid if I eat a processed/pastry-type sweet; it's all over!!! emoticon

I follow the I Ching - "the way to fight evil is to make energetic progress toward the good". emoticon In this case - I'm not thinking in terms of eliminating sugar, I'm thinking in terms of what healthy foods I should eat. emoticon I have sugar treats in the house, they are things like very dark chocolate and whole grain Kashi cookies. For this phase, I'm not even eating those. Once I feel like I'm really on a healthy eating roll, I'll have one of those in the evening on occasion. That way I sleep through any strong urges for more sugar and wake up feeling normal and calm. emoticon

Olivia, I have OCD. So while I am very organized, I am also compulsive (especially with SWEETS!). So, I need to be just as habitual with sweets as I am with other things... right? :)

Well, I cut out all the 'pasteries' such as no ice cream, candy, cookies, cakes, pies, etc...not even any of the little 100 calorie packs. I did all this a little over 6 weeks ago! It's been tough! I'm actually scared to eat any 'bad' stuff b/c I'm afraid that I'll be totally off the wagon. I depend on blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and they yummy Chocolate-y Ricotta Mousse! I love that! I mixed the Jif Whips Chocolate PeanutButter w/ the ricotta cheese...it is butt-kickin yummy. But I stil only have it aobut twice a week! I can tell a difference in my clothes, after 6 weeks!! emoticon

I have to add here and say that I am not SEEKING the sweets that are in the various weeks, but if presented to me and I really wish to have it, I will unless I've made it to that week. (Does that make sense?) For example, my daughter and her friends made cupcakes. I ate one because I am on the no candy week. So, it wasn't on the "Forbidden" list yet. If they make cupcakes while I am on week 4, then I won't eat it because it has already "officially" been eliminated from my diet. I hope that clears things up! :)

Week 1: Candy

Week 2: Cake and cupcakes

Week 3: Brownies and Muffins

Week 4: Donuts

Week 5: ICE CREAM! YIKES!

Week 6: Sweet cereals, yogurts, sweet coffees

Week 7: Pies , pancakes, and Pudding (I call it my three "P" week)

Week 8: Snack foods high in corn syrup and contains more than 2g of sugar (i.e. nutrigrain bars, many protein bars, etc)

Day 4 of Week 1 Elimination! So far, so good! We are at the beach and the kids went into the Candy Store. I sat at the table and didn't roam through the store. I controlled myself! I am posting my list on my fridge to help remind me and my husband of what I am doing and to get him and the kids on board.
