to all who care to listen and to those who are sick of hearing stories like mine, i appologize. two weeks ago i started sugar busters but this week it has just not been my week. why cant i be a success story! why cant i stick to any plan that i start? i did great on atkins but realized that i needed more fruits and veggies. lost 50lbs on atkins and have gained about 15 back. then i decided to try the sugar busters and things started out fine, even lost 4 lbs but have since gained it back. the saddest part is that all my children except one is overweight and my 19 yr old is truly obese and i want to help her.....makes me want to cry. why is it so hard. if you dont mind can i ask some questions. first of all i have bought the book, i do know the concept behind carbs and understand it. my questions are:

can we eat sugar free russel stoffers candy?

what is the deal with peas? i thought they were startchy?

why would the book say eat light mayo, if when they take out the fat they add sugar?

well thats all the questions i have for now. i hope that i can come back and ask questions when i need to. thank you all in advance

Rachel... I don't have the answers you are seeking...I have never read Sugar Busters... sorry.

I just wanted to come here an say I know how you feel about your children. My kids all have weight problems too. Sometimes I feel so guilty that I did not teach my kids good eating habits... but now they are old enough to take responsiblity for themselves.

I hope you find the answers you are seeking.

Rachel, I am sorry to hear about your set back. But you should think of it like that. Just 1 set back. Don't let it ruin your confidence. Everyone has setbacks. I don't know anything about Sugar Busters, but I firmly believe that not all plans are good for everyone. Find the one that is good for you. Find one that fits, and let the great people here help you thru the good times and the bad. That is what is great about this site, we are all in the same boat. And I know what you mean about the children. All of my children have weight problems. But, I am trying to fix that. Beating yourself up over past mistakes won't make them go away. Confront them and change your behavior. Good luck!!!!

Hi Rachel

We all understand the struggles just gotta keep you chin up. Take it one meal at a time..someone gave me that ..and i am starting to use that advice.

As for your kids being over weight or obese...i never blame my parents for that. I throughly enjoy my childhood especially the love for food. I know so many kids who were food deprived and parents telling them they couldnt have it cause it was going to make them fat. Then they wound up the other way with anorix and i rather have my kids obese then die from starvation. Dont beat yourself especially since you did your best.
