Default NSV! I did it!!

So, I decided to see if go 30 days with no sweets, I have a huge sweet tooth...or rather I had a huge sweet tooth. I made it through the 30 days with no sweets! The day after I finished the challenge, I went to a wedding. The bride's mom had made homemade pralines. I had a bite and flinched from the sugar. It's been about another 8 days since I finished, and I am still staying away from the sugar. I am very happy about this. I am hoping this lack of sweets continues.

S/C/G: Nearing the home stretch


way to go!
Back in August 2013, I convinced myself to give my plan a shot until October 31, 2013. I told myself then that, when that date came, I would be grateful I had committed myself to losing weight. Sure enough, when October 31, 2013 came, I was deeply grateful and pleased with my progress. It's been 19 months and over 115 lbs lost, and I remain deeply grateful every day. There are no words to explain how worth it the hard work is.
Reached onederland 31.12.2013!
Became 'overweight' (BMI of 29.7) on July 29, 2014!

I've been doing the same thing. I found, personally, sweet was fairly easy. But I ate A LOT of potatoes, mashed, baked, fries, and potato chips. I also eat bread and pasta quite a bit.

But I haven't had a candy bar in 6 months or bought bread or pasta or actually potatoes except for sweet potatoes in a few recipes. I have had some sandwiches out and about and a the stray fries.

Lowering sweets/carbs is an awesome way to go in my opinion. I am convinced for me it was straight to belly fat and keeping me in a state of constant hunger. And it is totally absolutely doable. If you told me I would go 6 months without buying potato chips I'd say you were crazy. But I did it.

And I was a carbaholic. Anyone can do it. Get by the first few weeks and it is worth it and can be done.

My one advice is concentrate on CARBS not just sweets

I was on the whole grain stuff is good for you, bread, and pasta, etc. Once it is inside of you it is all carbs. I think of bread and pasta and potatoes as cotton candy now, even whole wheat products.

Some debate that whole wheat gets processed differently. But we had switched over to whole wheat years ago and I still had massive carb belly. It wasn't until I cut it down drastically that the belly went down dramatically. My body once carbs got in from sweets or whole wheat pasta they stimulated insulin and mostly got stored not used. So just a reminder to be careful not to sub carbs for sweets. Although I still do eat veggies and fruits, I am NOT nor will be on Atkins.
