Starting Again

Hello, I'm starting again on Atkins. Don't know why I ever quit - it works!
Was wondering, though about the Splenda/Brown Sugar product. Couldn't you just use your own brown sugar (always have it in my pantry) and mix it with the Splenda you use every day? Just wanting to save a little money.
Hoping this group will be a home for me - I am way over 50 yrs old!

Howdy, newmann, please join the rest of us in our daily "Roll Call" thread, daily "Menu" thread and "Exercise" thread, the majority post there every day, have for years and years......

No point wondering why you "got off the wagon", it's the same reason anyone goes off, it gets to not be satisfying any more........repeat and repent, only a handful keep at it forever. Just do the best you can You are NORMAL

Hi newman, nice to have you join in.

In answer to your question about the brown sugar, you could try mixing that with splenda. It just depends on the amount of brown sugar you are replacing. Sometimes just splenda works fine too.

Let us know how that works for you.

I use brown sugar Twin, comes in boxes, doesn't have the after taste that the Splenda stuff has, and, you can use it as a topping on the stuff you bake, instead of other stuff, satisfies better. My husband even uses it, and he is picky.

Welcome and hope you do join us on the other threads.

As for Splenda brown, you could just add a little brown sugar to your splenda. After all, that is what the Splenda brown.
That's what we use but not much of it and am still maintaining after almost 20 years.

You can add a dollop of blackstrap molasses to your dish, then add your sweetener to make the sweetness you like...that's all the "brown" sweeteners are anyway..just make sure you use blackstrap as it's lower calorie/carb than other molasses.

I restart every Monday. I just can't seem to stay on track when my hubby is around. Anybody got any ideas for that (short of getting rid of him)? He sure makes it so hard on me to eat right. Dear thing brought me candy bars from fund raisers at work he just can't say no to and I just Love me some chocolate.

Put the bars into his lunch box, force him to eat them, tell him exactly! My dh used to tempt me with ice cream, you have to show him you mean it, or, give up, there is no half way with this kind of thing. Otherwise, he is just another excuse.
