Woke up early and ate a breakfast of bread, cheese, watermelon, and fruit. Rode my bike to work and taught a Tai Chi class during which my legs felt weak and shaky. I rode home tired.
A nap began to seem more and more enticing. I felt as if I’d eaten seven bags of M&Ms and fell into a deep sleep. A few hours later I woke up slowly. This hasn’t happened in a long time. It made me really glad I’m off sugar. It’s my ninth month!
Lately I’ve been dreaming about eating sweets. In one dream I ate a bunch of generic cream sandwich cookies before “realizing” what I was doing.
In another dream I made the choice to eat sweets and was rummaging through a kitchen cabinet (not mine) to find candy and Hostess snacks. When I “realized” what that I was eating sugar I told myself things were just too stressful to not do it. Then this website came to mind and the guit hit me because people would know.
Luckily it was just a dream.
Another one bites the good stuff!

I’m starting to create a program that people can follow to eliminate sugar from their diet. One thing I want to tell everyone is that it’s rare that someone completely omits sugar from their lives forever.
I have a friend who has not eaten chocolate in TEN YEARS! She said if she eats it then that’s all she eats. She is rare and she still eats other sweet things. She found chocolate to be her only trigger food and has therefore eliminated it and that works FOR HER.
Completely quitting sugar is darn near impossible, and also very tough. That’s why I have quit for a year. I will eat sweets again, but only as part of my annual sugar binge ritual, and then I’m off for another year. So far it works for me.
Everyone needs to develop their own parameters. There is no one solution for everyone. If you have any suggestions about things that can help you (recipes, things to say, alternative food suggestions, etc.) please let me know.
Good luck and check back.
