Another point of view from a huge sugar addict. When I started SBD three months ago, I had been so heavy into eating sugar that I absolutely knew that I wouldn't be able to go cold turkey. So I have been using artifical sweeteners right along whenever I wanted something sweet. So far so good and the weight is coming off and I figure that using artifical sweeteners for a while is better than eating processed or refined sugars and other than that, I've been eating so much more healthy.
However, that being said, I have planned all along in cutting back on the artifical sweeteners when the time is right. I have already started this process and will gradually eliminate them completely.
But for now I am still using them to some extent but down the road will walk away from them completely.
Just another opinion to consider.
I will remain on plan for one full year without giving up no matter what!
One for every ten pounds lost
1st goal by 01/01/11 - 270 met 12 31 10!
2nd goal by 03/19/11 - 250 lbs met 03 16 11
3rd goal - 242 lbs Oops - have to work on this one again.
4th goal - 212 lbs when I will move from being obese to just overweight
