Sugar Update

Seven days without any added sugar. That means honey, rapadura, stevia, refined sugar, syrup,  chocolate etc. I've even skipped my favorite Luna bar as it is chocolate and therefore feels like cheating. LOL 


It hasn't been as tough as I've expected. I did find that I began craving tomatoes, squash and such on day 4. I hadn't decided, and still haven't, about the family's weekly ice cream treat. I'm not sure eating it will hurt me but it may make it that much harder going into week 2. 


I've turned down MANY offerings of sweets from the kids this week....I keep reminding them, "Mommy is fasting from sugar for a month, remember?"  This makes me realize that they all KNOW the way to my heart is through chocolate. ::snort:: Time to kick the habit. 


Weight wise - I've been to the gym 5 days in a row. I ate the same amount of calories but no sugar and lost 3 lbs. LOL

Good job getting rid of sugar! I've been sugar free for 3 years now. I have much more energy and feel a whole lot better.

I don't know if this will be a forever thing for me. I am looking at it as a chance to build confidence in discipline....break the addiction of chocolate and then we'll see. I suspect a bit of organic sugar now and then is in my future.....

NICE JOB :).... Sometimes I miss having some fruit, but even the natural sugar messes with the insulin levels so for now I don't even do very much natural sugar either... closer to my goal, I'll start gradually adding in some of those healthier sugars.

Way to go, DeEtta! I had similar results when I cut waaaaay back on all white carbs several years ago. My body is telling me to do it again. It'd be nice to FIT in my clothes once more. ;/
