I have successfully completed 3 consecutive days of no added/refined sugar and tracking my calories. I found the calorie tracking continuing as a natural extension of those three day. I've tracked my calories 5 days in a row, and the scale showed me down one pound. I'm not tracking it until next weigh in to make sure, but . . . it is sure better than another pound up.
I feel like the 3 days of no sugar re-set my cravings for sweets. I still want them, but it has become more manageable. I am able to control the impulse, stop and consider and make a rational decision, not an emotional one. This has helped me in the past and I'm thankful it has seemed to help me again. I know it is not a long term fix and I may need to repeat, but I'm feeling a breath of fresh air in my dark corner.
Small wins - I'll take them. I know they lead to more small wins and starting an upward spiral instead of downward.
