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."

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
