:free: I'll get on this with you Faye!! I'm starting back with no sugar no flour again too! Day 3 for me! I do use splenda in my cereal and tea but that's about as much as my body can handle without getting crazy!

Mind if I join in on this one for a bit too? Sugar's not usually a problem for me, but I'm stuck in a cycle right now.

Great to have company here.
Sorry to hear anybody is having sugar woes.
I know I am addicted to sugar.
I make a commitment to myself to have a :sf: day today.
I have that 10 pound fruitcake in my refrigerator.
How many days can I go without any sugar?
One day at a time. I am aiming for today.

Sounds good, Faye. This is a new problem for me...can use a little help getting back to my non sugar-craving self.

Raechel - did you make it on Days 4 & 5?

Went for the office-provided licorice 3 times so far today...came away empty handed each time, trying to stay focused. Hard to believe such petty temptations creep us as they do...almost hard to admit.

:blush: Mike thanks for checking in! I have been doing well with the sugar! I have gone almost a week with one slip up yesterday and today. It was more of a hick up because I decided to bake something I shouldn't have...turns out I was out of splenda. The good news is that I didn't go crazy with the sugar once I started and I could feel the affects it had on my body and kinda turned me off a bit. I like that I can 'dislike' those feelings...in the past I haven't even noticed my body react so subtly. I'll keep plugging away one moment at a time too! Glad to be here Faye!! God's grace is more than enough for me to overcome these hang ups! :set:

Good deal, Faye. EEE and Sugar Free!

Raechel - Great that your body is agreeing with your mind to beat this challenge. I'm like that with greasy foods now...I absolutely can't roll up to a Mc'D Drive thru and order a burger these days.

Well...I made it thru the work day yesterday, but felt over-tired and only had candied-nuts for dinner. 2 Choco pretzel rods later in the evening as well. Better rested today, so should have better chance at success.

...almost had it, but did not make it though the after-dinner time without sugar. Early-to-rise today - hopefully, that translates into an earlier bedtime to avoid this last hour of the eve that's giving me the issues.

Well...I ended up with 2 in a row, but did have sugar yesterday. You know...if I can go 2 out of 3 for a while, I'd be very happy :)

How did you do yesterday, Raechel? Do you have any more challenge on the weekends than through the week?

Yesterday and today were no goes! I decided to buy some dark chocolate thinking I could do them in moderation...I should know myself better than that hehe. I ended up finishing off the whole candy bar. Won't be buying those again for awhile..Im going to take it my body isnt ready for that yet. Picking up and trying again tomorrow! =) How was your day Mike? How about you Faye?

Well Raechel...the challenge kept me out of trouble yesterday morning, but not the afternoon. Today, just a 100 calorie Klondike bar, so a good transition into a better day tomorrow? Next time, you can share the dark choco with me... ;)

Let's get this thing DONE!

My fruitcake is getting in the way of my :sf: days.
I had not baked one in 12 years.
We all still like it.
I am sharing it with family and friends.
I can not be the only one gaining weight at Christmas
I just might get in a :sf: day today. If I can make it, I'll be back tooting my horn loud and clear tomorrow morning.

Can I do this on a Friday night?
I didn't eat candy sitting on the counter at our switch board yesterday. PTL
I sat and watched this candy for 3 hours.
It was sugar but; it was not the good stuff.
This challenge is the only reason I did not eat that sugar. PTL
I have to at least be :sf: some days.
I must just eat the good stuff, if I am going to put sugar into my body.

Great going, Faye. Your body will thank you tenfold.

My body is upset with me...let me know it by waking up to middle-of-night cramps (hydration). I fought off temptations through the day...in large part because of this challenge, but when I sat down to watch the football game, I gave in.

No sugar free again today. I will refocus for tomorrow...this isn't normally a problem for me, but I'm struggling right now.

The sugar monster is on my back too.
I did sugar over the weekend.
We made peanut butter balls, chocolate covered peanut butter and crackers, chocolate covered peanuts & a ice box fruit cake.
The we being, my sister, her grandchildren and myself.
We had the kind of fun we had making Christmas goodies with our Mother when we were kids.
Great weekend.
All I have in my house is part the 2 fruitcakes we have made.
Will I remain :sf: for today? Yes!
Weekend is over. I will be :sf: for my body today.
