Hi everyone.
This looks like a fabulous support group for people like myself - keen to finally give up the sweet stuff. After consuming my entire body weight in Easter eggs over the past few days, I've come to realise just how addictive sugar is & just how terrible it makes me feel (headaches, lethargy & general guilt/anxiety).

I would like love to hear from anyone who had gone through the same struggle as I begin my journey to freedom (hopefully). I recognise that it won't be easy (I gave it up for 3 months 2 years ago & broke at Easter time) but am hoping this time will be easier.

Thanks in advance,
Carol

I realized that for me.... the more I tell myself I can't have something, the more I want it. Bad! So the first thing I did was tell myself I can have whatever I want.
Then I question myself on everything I eat. Do I really want it?
Then I got a simple chocolate flavored protein powder. I keep one made at all times. Then I go to that first. Other than that one time of the month, I usually feel fine from the chocolate flavor of protein drink. And very cold.
After a while, your palate changes.
I know you can find tricks to help you a long. Good luck. Don't beat yourself up if you eat sugar. Just keep working on it.

Hi JD. Instead of questioning yourself on all you eat, how about trying focusing on one thing to stop: sugar. If it's in there, it's a simple no-go. and then you move on and think, eat or do something else.

Thanks guys ❤️❤️
Easter was really difficult. It's tricky to find what works but at the moment i am easing myself into it & not being too hard on myself. I agree - when I say I can't have it, i want it more! So I'm starting off saying no processed sugary junk food. So juices (fresh), fruit & some healthy food that still contains sugar is okay. As I get better at saying no & my palette starts to change, I'll get stricter.

For the moment it is working though - I'm sure a lot of it is down to moral support though so thank you! ❤️❤️
