Last evening we went out to dinner with our son and his fiancée. I have been doing well and I made good healthy thoughtful choices all day yesterday until it was time for dessert. I thought a long time before taking a small piece of pie after dinner (without whipped topping or ice cream). Even with dessert I remained within my calorie range. I did surprisingly okay with it.

Have been back on track today. As a matter-of-fact, I attended a soup-and-salad lunch meeting complete with dessert. I made good food choices there and carefully chose my portions and actually chose not to have dessert (dessert choices included cookies and brownies - brownies are a favorite of mine). This is all pretty incredible for me. If I weren't there, I almost would not have believed it was me!

I did pretty well yesterday. I do enjoy my Activia every morning. There are two tsps of sugar in it and that's the lowest calorie one! I have come to the realization that I cannot get ALL sugar out of my life and, therefore, must find happiness in just being mindful and reducing it in my life. I did sleep better last night!

I'm here to get healthier just one day at a time!

W2D2 - had Bailey's Chocolate creamer in my coffee at work; nevermind why I did, but it could have been so so much worse. Lots of temptations today, and that was all I had.

Have not had any compulsive eating fits since I started. My new teams are doing the trick and keeping my on the straight and narrow!

Week one went well -- I only had one day when I ate compulsively and even then I kept it in some degree of check.
My program is to eat fruit for dessert -- usually an orange which takes quite a time to successfully peel and eat. By which time I seem to be in control.
My avoidances are eating any trigger food (chocolate/cookies basically) in a situation where there is an opportunity to eat more than one.

We'll see how it goes. Recording daily is working well for me.

Way to go, everyone! We ARE doing this. emoticon We are making progress.

I went out to lunch today, had cheese sandwich and tomato soup, and SKIPPED the brownie (which was included with the meal). I almost never did that before! And I don't even miss it.... now, that IS something.

I'm doing pretty good for week 2. I dropped soda completely and avoided it at my cousin's house (which is HUGE accomplishment for me). I've even started subbing fruit instead of my old sugar go to's, which up's my fruit servings to the healthier status of 5 a day. I feel like I'm making great progress with this challenge emoticon

One day at a time.

W2D1 - total sweets today: 3 dark choc-covered coffee beans. I thought first, checked out cal count for one and decided 24 cal was worth a small boost to get me through an extra hour of work.

I've been using Splenda brown sugar blend to cut calories. I don't sweeten my coffee at all, and fortunately for me, I love herbal teas as is. I used to add honey to my green tea, but am drinking it straight these days.

Hi all,

I too am watching my sugars. I am going to reduce the amount of corn syrup and regular suger that I use. I also plan to use more splenda in baking and cooking. Finally, I am learning to like hot tea without any sugar.

I too have decreased my extra sugar and added sugar intake. I am truly amazed at how good it feels, I am more energetic not less. My bad time is after dinner where I used to have my sweets-- now I get out of the kitchen and knit and listen to music-- the urge passes.

Articles this week have been mind blowing with how much "hidden in plain sight" sugar is in products even those called "healthy."

I have copied the list of added sugars to take to the supermarket with me--

after keeping a good eye on what I ate over a week, I found my biggest trigger is sweetened coffee, especially when its cold outside. I also realized I think I should try getting plain greek yogurt and possibly add fresh fruit or a bit of honey. I already keep the snacky food around my house to a minimum, but going out, that's another story! Gonna pay better attention to my food labels for sure! emoticon

In the first week I learned that if I have sweets around, I eat them, particularly in the late afternoon and evening, often eating them without even thinking about it. And once I start, I cannot stop until the package is empty. I also learned that I eat sweets in response to emotional situations. So I have gotten rid of the sweets and replaced them with healthy foods which I am currently learning to incorporate into my eating plan. I am also beginning to think about what I am eating, why I am eating it, and how it tastes.

I think I am ready to start week 2.

Hmm. Just starting week two. I gave up smoking 14 months ago but I feel like I should buy stock in Orbit gum - particularly the bubble gum flavor. I generally chew 2 packs (36 pieces) a day. I am certain it is a trigger food, but am still craving cigarettes (do no give in) and occasionally, alcohol (I gave that up over 4 years ago.) Last night I made some extra thick hot chocolate, to a sip and gave it to my SO because it was too sweet.... but I joined this team because in the past few months I have craved candy bars and cookies- things I traditionally could do without. I wish I could come up with a convenient (the most red flag word in the English language on every level) to substitute for orbit chewing gum. I ordered some with xilotol from Canada but it is too expensive - just can't do it on a daily basis.

Onward to week 2 of Tame (Name)Your Sweet Tooth. % )

Starting week two today. Quit cold turkey on day one because I can't seem to do a little. No such thing. It is easier this way. First three days were tough as BLG just said. But I feel just great now.

Oh yes, I found sugar in most of the basic things I eat like salad dressing, ketchup, sandwich spread, etc. Last week was HARD. Even though I didn't have to, I cut back sharply on my sugar intake right away and turned into a bear for a couple of days. By day 3 I began to moderated my sugar intake instead of cutting it out, cold turkey. I cut out the extra sweets like cookies, cakes, candy, etc. I allowed myself my one treat each day: quaker oats peanut butter and chocolate granola bar (yum!). I'm drinking lots of water each day and this week I feel great!

I found a lot of sauces, condiments and dressing I use with lots of sugar. I replaced ketchup out for the most part and used either spicy brown mustard or a-1 sauce to replace it. Less calories and almost no sugar, plus I didn't miss the ketchup.

my biggest sugar thing is Kool-Aid. I gave up Pepsi a couple of years ago, but replaced it with Kool-Aid. So, water with lemon will be my replacement or if I can find a fruit flavored mix to put in the water, natural, I will go there.

I love chocolate - no matter what kind of sugar is used to make it. When I eat chocolate now though, I focus on the bittersweet and high cacao content because they contain less sugar. Today I was able to walk past chocolate cupcakes, cookies and brownies left in our office. I ate an apple instead.

It does get easier....the first couple days are rough because you think 'I'm only two days in', a binge won't make a difference. But I find sweetened cranberries and bananas are pretty sweet, so I stock up and put banana halves in the freezer so they're like popsicles. Way less calories and after a week or so, it's better (especially when the scale starts going down!) Good luck!

I have very ingrained anxiety. I have used food, alcohol and at times cigarettes to deal with it with poor results. Medications have mixed results. It has made me diabetic and overweight. I struggle with making my own concoctions when it comes to sugar. I need to set reminders all over and tell myself this wont help me. It will actually hurt me in the long run. I will avoid tortilla chips, candy, and any of my pure sugar concoctions.

Gave in a lot during week one, but this week it's gonna be better-I promised myself a pedicure if I don't cheat in two weeks. I'm really looking forward to that, and I know I won't get one if I cheat, because I can't really afford it either way! Halloween may be tough, but I have faith!

Starting week 2 being tired, stressed etc. saw a lot of bad sugar in my day yesterday. I have been better today. From starting week 2 action plan, I am looking more carefully at labels. I was just eating some no added sugar pears and 17g on the label for sugar. That is the sugar in a pear and it in considered acceptable on the glycemic scale. I am keeping my water intake up hoping to fight sugar cravings.

I did really well in week 1. I attended two birthdays and didn't have cake either time! I replaced my oatmeal, yogurt, and protein bars with low/ no sugar options. I eat 1/2 protein bar and an apple instead of a whole one for a snack. I do crave sugar in the evening but I haven't given in yet. :-)

Keep up the great work everyone!!

I'm just starting week two. My plan for this week is to make sure I don't get so hungry that I go into a manic search for junk food. I'm still a bit confused as to which yogurt is the best choice but will get it figured out.

Dr. Pepper is my go to stress food. My super busy week concerns me because it's so darn easy to grab a soda. At work last week I had a can of soda, a cup of coffee, and a bottle of water on my desk . . . The only thing not empty was the bottle of water. emoticon
This week will be better. . . Maybe not huge leaps and bounds, but definitely better!

I'm just starting week 2. My worst cravings are for actual sweets, mostly chocolate, but also things like ice cream. Since being pregnant and then being exhausted with a baby, I've been letting myself indulge practically every day. That needs to stop. I've also been eating too many carbs, especially when I get tired. So my three sources of sugar I will work on reducing this week are:

(1) candy, cookies, ice cream (I'm lumping these together under "sweets"
(2) breads
(3) milk tea boba (During my pregnancy I started having these a couple times a week in place of coffee. I've cut back, but still end up getting it about once a week)

I already messed up by grabbing frozen waffles this morning (made a sandwich with chunky peanut butter and ate it on the go). But that was before I read the Action Plan for this week, so this week starts at lunch today. Let's see how I do. I know I'm going to a cast party for a friend's dance show that I'm volunteering at. They will likely have sweets there, so that will probably be the hardest thing this week. That, and getting enough sleep so that I don't crave sweets & carbs.

I am finding eating lean protein with each meal or snack and at least 1/2 of my food being fruits and vegetables really helps me not crave simple carbs and sweets. I remembered reading years ago that the sugar swings cause vit.B to be lowered and then a persons goes to more sweets to have the energy they feel a lack of. I'm thinking that might be me. I often what sweets or just let go of my program when I'm tired so I'm looking into a good vitamin B supplement . Of course this also points to getting adequate rest.

Keep up all the great work everyone. emoticon

I have been doing well on the challenge. I had a conference to attend earlier this week and although they had huge chocolate chip cookies and a nice big slice of chocolate cake, I was able to walk away from them. I did have two red bulls though for energy and I did ad a little sweetener to my coffee. I also added some honey to my tea. I am going to work harder at trying to not add any additional sugar to my diet. I notice that I crave sweets when I am stressed or upset.

I made sugar free protein bars instead of black bean brownies this week to cut down on more sugar! The less sugar I eat the less I crave! Fruit is also been a great substitute and Doesn't give me the high and lows but, does give me energy!

Did pretty good. Had a craving for some chocolate, but passed the store so I didn't pick any up. I was able to go without it today. Picked up some fresh peaches, bananas instead.
I have some sugar free hard candy, but I'm not a big hard candy eater, so it stays in the dish downstairs.
Plan on doing the quiz tomorrow.

You should be proud of yourself just eating one chocolate covered strawberry. I really can't be proud of my behavior this weekend. Lots of candy and chocolate brought in the house and I think I may have taken the personal challenge to eat it up rather than make a plan to avoid it. But, your post has inspired me and I plan to plan and replace those sugars with fruit this week.

Okay so week 2 is almost over and I've been doing great all week!
I wait to have my sugar fix after dinner and as of yesterday I'm actually going with portion controls that are already done for me.
100 calorie packs are my new best friend!
I'm trying to collect them all! lol.
1 a day (if I want) and that is all.
It's been the only way for me to maintain so sort of control over my cravings.
