No Sugar Please

Last month I decided to join my friend Amanda in eating no sugar for a month. So I was going to go all out and not eat any sugar what so ever but that would mean no fruit, dairy, salad dressings, etc. I did eliminate soda though which turned out to be easier than I thought. I have attempted this feat on numerous other occasions and have crashed and burned miserably after a few days. This time I don't know what was different, no soda even diet coke which I LOVE or that I saw the scale go down on a weekly basis, probably the latter. So at the end of the month I had lost 7 lbs and am back into my skinny jeans which I have been hemming and hawwing about getting rid of so they stop taunting me from my closet!! Now I wear them all the time and am loving it!!! I will be fitting in my old summer clothes as well and be busting out my size 4 dresses for the spring!!

After the month was over I treated myself with some pie, ice cream, whipped cream and a little diet soda and have decided that they don't really taste anywhere near what they do in my "head" so I am going back to no refined sugars ie desserts and sodas for the next month to try and get the last little bit of weight that I want to be off. Oh and the best part is I haven't worked out even a 1/16 of what I have been the past year and a half where I was beating my head against the wall with the weight gain or platuea and feeling exhausted all the time. Now I sleep in and bum around and all I have to do is not eat that sugary treat!! That is a trade off I can take!!
