Anyone interesed in a Sugar-Free June?
I need to break the sugar addiction, so I'm looking for some folks to make this 30 day journey with me....anyone?? :help:

Mobird 05-31-2013 12:26 PM

Me! I intended to do it for the May challenge and failed. Sugar is what derails me. I'm an addict and need to go cold turkey.

I'm adopting your WOE for 30 days: "Sugar Free...one day at a time."

HaleysNana 05-31-2013 12:28 PM

Thank goodness! Thought maybe I was the only addict! Should we keep this thread or start a new one to begin tomorrow?

Mobird 05-31-2013 12:40 PM

We can keep this one--maybe a few more addicts will join us today or tomorrow.

I'm ready!

Mobird 05-31-2013 12:42 PM

I have to remind myself daily how much better I feel when I don't eat sugar.

HaleysNana 05-31-2013 12:45 PM

I have to do this! I'm never going to lose weight if I don't, but more importantly, I'm just tired of knowing that my life is consumed and controlled by sugar. Geez...that even sounds lame!

Mobird 06-01-2013 11:42 AM

So far so good today--bacon for breakfast and a turkey cheddar burger with guacamole for lunch. The sugar demon hasn't started whispering in my ear yet.

HaleysNana 06-01-2013 12:35 PM

Me too!!! So far, so good!!!

sloppail 06-01-2013 02:53 PM

Hi...I would like to join because sugar and flour are my two addictive substances ... I need to stop eating them. I will start now :)


HaleysNana 06-01-2013 02:58 PM

Cmon in Kim!!! So far todY hasnt been bad..just taking this one day at a time!

Mobird 06-01-2013 05:23 PM

Welcome Kim!

It's after 7 here and I am done eating for today--happy to report that I made it through day 1 with no sugar! I know from experience that the first week or so is tough, so one day at a time.

Hope everyone had a good day.

HaleysNana 06-01-2013 05:26 PM

Same here...just finished dinner, hot wings, celery, ranch and a deviled egg. One day down, 29 to go!

Kaarren 06-01-2013 07:14 PM

Hi there,
I'm IN

Starting NOW!

sloppail 06-01-2013 07:26 PM

I had sugar this morning...before i started this challenge, so tomorrow is my official day 1 :). Great job everyone!!!!

HaleysNana 06-01-2013 07:45 PM

About to go to bed, so I'm declaring day 1 done!! Welcome everyone!!

Mobird 06-02-2013 11:06 AM

Day 2 and still going strong. I'm not having the withdrawal symptoms I've had in the past, maybe because I'm consuming much less sugar than I used to. Last year at this time I successfully detoxed from sugar and carbs and the first two weeks were hell. After that it was easy because I had no desire for it. It's only recently that sugar has been creeping back in, so it should be easier this time. Let's hope.

sloppail 06-02-2013 11:25 AM

Good morning everyone!! Today is my day 1 and I'm going to do really well!!! Good luck Mo on the detox :)

karenann33 06-02-2013 01:54 PM

Okay count me in. I've had sugar already today but am motivated to keep trying. Maybe a support group will help. Sigh.

It's the withdrawal symptoms that get me. Usually day 3-6 is when it hits me. I get irritable and tired.

HaleysNana 06-02-2013 02:00 PM

Admission - headache and edgy...all the more reason to break this addiction!

kimlou 06-02-2013 02:52 PM

Hello all ... !!! Count me in ....
Tomorrow will be my 1st day... Today has been a rough one . So the old habits just walked right in and then walked over me .

So the rest of the day will be SF... YES, I am an addict

HaleysNana 06-02-2013 02:56 PM

Welcome aboard...we can do this!!!

Mobird 06-02-2013 06:41 PM

Made it through Day 2 without any sugar!

HaleysNana 06-02-2013 07:14 PM

Day 2 in the books for me too...exhausted but encouraged!!

kimlou 06-03-2013 10:12 AM

Good morning all...

Today will be day 1 for me .... about 7pm will be one day completed.

Have a great day Sugar-Free day !

Today is day 1 for me so I'm still happy.

I did warn my husband that I might not be so happy by day 3. LOL

HaleysNana 06-03-2013 01:24 PM

I've already apologized....in advance...for whatever I may do or so over the next few days! LOL

kimlou 06-03-2013 02:20 PM

i gave the warning notice too... LOL

Mobird 06-03-2013 05:12 PM

Made it through Day 3--no crazy cravings but definitely feeling a bit funky. I've been drinking lots of water and trying to be mellow.
