On Saturday I went to my friends cabin and I went a bit off the wagon. I didn't consume a lot of sugary things but I think I had too many grapefruit coolers filled with sugar in the hot tub. I am going to try again starting today.
My favourite Jane Eyre adaptation is the A&E one with Timothy Dalton. I know I'm dating myself. I saw it when I was 16. I was so swept away I read the novel in a couple of days. Then in university I felt great shame when I took a West Indian Literature course and studied Wide Sargosso Sea. The author Jean Rhys centres her story around the wild woman of Jane Eyre, Mr. Rochester's crazy wife. So for me Jane Eyre is a truly guilty passion.
I don't know if this is encouraging but here goes. I've tried to go sugar free countless times this month and every day I ate something with sugar. I did ok last week. I started Monday and lasted until Friday night. My friend invited me to dinner. I did not refuse a serving of frozen yogurt. Then I had a piece of cake the next day at my parents for dessert. Last night I ate a bun that had sugar and and some ketchup. I still try and be sugar free but I see that...
Wow thanks for all that advice. I'm definitely going to try and eat more protein today, even when all the meals I planned for today don't have any. I'll find some way to add some. I'm on day 4 and it feels harder. I want to have a bagel and jam. I woke up thinking, "What about a huge slice of chocolate cake". But I will continue. Wish me luck through Day 4.
I must say I'm nervous of having my dd's cavities filled. She has two cavities in the back teeth and two small ones in the front. My dentist is going to fill the two in the back. He says they are small and that he'll fill them without an anaesthetic. The only problem is she is very shy and sensitive and I'm not sure how it is going to go. I'm relieved that a toddler could do it. My dd is 5 1/2.
Hello, all. I'm trying to go sugar-free. I keep starting and everyday I do ok until that one thing... Next thing I know I've eaten something with sugar. I'm not doing well and not sure if I can do this at all.
I'm trying to lose weight. I'm going to do it by avoiding sugar. Avoiding sugar and keeping nutrients? I thought it might not be a bad idea. Do you have any sugar-free recipes for pancakes or cookies that I could try?
