I cut out the candy and it was actually fairly easy. I still ate some other treats but I didn’t eat them IN ADDITION TO the candy, so it was still an improvement. Tomorrow I’ll start cutting out the baked goods. The candy was easy so hopefully the baked goods will be too… 2 days ago

I was doing very well for a while, but I relapsed horribly and it’s gotten kind of out of control. So. I’m going to do this in steps, rather than cold turkey. It has to be a lifestyle change!
The first week (which starts, well, now) I’m going to stop eating candy. Candy is my big one, and it’s completely useless. Maybe every now and then I’ll let myself have some, but I find with sugar the more leeway I give (like: “once a week, during a movie!”), the harder it is to not eat it every single day.
Week 2 I will also cut out baked goods. Week 3, ice cream and other dairy related treats. Week 4, soda. Week 5, I’ll cut out chips and any kind of fast food besides subway (not really a big issue for me). Week 6, white bread. I think that’ll about cover it. An accidental 6-week plan, look at that!
I’m going to keep track of my progress here; one of my biggest issues is making a goal in my head (like, I’m going to stop eating candy) then just forgetting about it and absent-mindedly reaching for the M&M’s…hopefully talking about it will keep it clear in my head.
I can’t wait to see my results after the end of this goal! :) 1 week ago
I have to lose some weight and this is one of the most important goals in the whole process. My goal is to consume up to 3 teaspoonfuls sugar per day. I cannot drink my coffee black :( actually I used to drink 2-3 per day with 3 spoons of sugar in each of them… 6-9 per day just in coffee, 2 in tea, not counting the cookies and chocolates.
I’m in day 3 cookie and chocolate free.
I drink my tea without sugar
Just 1 teaspoonful in my coffee and keep going.
Strangely I’m not craving for something sweet yet. 2 months ago
I actually went through sugar withdrawal when I started cutting it down. I’m still eating it, but a lot less. The goal is to basically completely eliminate it, except for one or two small treats per week. I’m not doing this to deprive myself but to give myself a healthier body. I often respond poorly to sugar-filled treats – stomach ache, shakiness, and so on – and there is no reason to keep eating it! The goal is not to deny myself, but to get my sugar addiction under control. 2 months ago
I was doing really, really well! But then things just slipped. It’s a slippery slope, this sugar addiction. Must pick it up again. I guess going to Japan in a week will help, being on holiday always helps (because when I’m travelling and sightseeing I just don’t have the time to eat things all day :-) ) (and I can’t wait to eat delicious Japanese food…) 6 months ago
Last Monday, a colleague treated us to mars-bars and such, since it was her birthday. I ate some, and afterwards I had that incredible sugar-downer again. I always have that after eating sweets. And suddenly I was so fed up with it! I thought: NO MORE!
So now I’m going to try and reduce my sugar-intake. I’m just so addicted to it, so I must be stronger than the sugar. It’ll be hard, but I must do it. I know it’ll make me healthier and more energized, but because it’s so addictive I know it’ll also be hard to stop.
I won’t be able to completely ban out all sugar from my food, since lots of things have sugar in it for some reason. But I’ll do my best, and if I focus and stay strong, I know I can do it. (‘really?’ I hear that little voice of addiction ask…) 9 months ago
Hello Peoples! I have a big problem with sugar. My weakness is Chocolate. Anything chocolate I have to have. I hope keeping it in the front of my mind and stuff will help me resist…. I don’t think there are any secrets to avoid this other than not eat so much junk. 9 months ago
I love cookies and chocolate and good cake and I will continue to eat it forever, but I need to cut back on my daily sugar. 9 months ago
