Sugar--Day 14
Thursday, October 15, 2015      2 comments

NO added sugar as of today. So I had to find a peanut butter without any added sugar--I did but I have to stir the oil in--so it is likely NOT healthier! LOL I don't like this much--no yogurt, no cereal, no protein shake--but I am starting to c... Read more

Still hanging on--but I am NOT eating anything sweet except fruit. I am finding the willpower again to not take the "junk" food--that helped me lose all the weight the first time. I am learning that I just CAN'T have one cause my "moderation" do... Read more

Passed up the goodies at church coffee hour--doing okay with that part. Just not sure if I can/want to give up cake/cookies forever. I should -- we don't need as much sugar as we eat but I do enjoy them. Trouble is I can't have just one. My... Read more

I did NOT have a piece of free candy--huge step for me! And hubby had ice cream--I did not. Reward for me--I don't know. I am not big on rewarding myself. I need NO new clothes. I'd love a massage but it would take a lot of days at a dollar... Read more

Come up with substitutes for the sugar cravings--I have been doing water, tea, a piece of fruit (yes, has sugar but not ADDED sugar so I allow that). I would like the HABIT of wanting sugar to go away. I expect that I will have to stay away from... Read more

Well--I wasn't "clean" today--at Costco, I had a taste of a granola-type bar and the dark chocolate with pumpkin seeds. I had not gotten lunch and grabbed without thinking. BUT that was all I had that was added sugar! The pantry cleaning is... Read more

I am not being perfect with "no sugar" but I am NOT eating any cookies, cakes, candy, cupcakes, scones--whatever! I did have a carton of yogurt for breakfast--and then hit the gym so couldn't get more sugar if I wanted it--and didn't want any b... Read more

It is a good thing I have no treats in the house--cause I WANT something. I can stay away from the ice cream but I may end up with a smoothie tonight. We'll see--I am trying to not. I have had my tea, I was busy this afternoon with a couple... Read more

I didn't have yogurt--the kind I have has added sugar. Hubby made me an egg and toast! Then I didn't have a muffin (free) or any candy (also free) at the conference I attended--that is huge for me. I had enough coffee that I wasn't hungry for l... Read more
