Well I tried this three years ago and then each year since I’ve made the big attempt to give up sugar completely. I have t been 100% successful at all but have made major strides in the right direction.
I don’t use any sugar in my coffee, tea, oatmeal, etc. I don’t drink soda or juice with the exception of orange juice (natural) maybe a few times a year. And I might have a diet soda a few times a year also…
I don’t like sweet drinks or food. My issue is mainly chocolate! If it’s available I will eat it. Or at least try it. Unless I’m being super strict which I try to be as much as possible. I let myself have treats on special occasions but I know when I’m starting to spiral hahaha.
It’s doesn’t bode well for Jack when I am “off” sugar because then our household is pretty sugar free. Except right now Jack has a giant bag full of Twix bars. Thanks Santa (LOL)….
I wish I didn’t just remember that.
me: Jack, guess what, the day after Christmas is going to kick off a month of no sugar. Just letting you know.
Jack: Didn’t you try that like three years ago?
Jack: And last year?
Jack: And you’re trying it again? If you just stopped eating sugar you wouldn’t have to keep starting to stop.
me: Hand me the fudge will ya?
