I am trying so hard not to eats sweets, and I have very little support around me, so I thought I would start a thread like the monthly "No Spend" challenge in the Frugality Forum. If you want to join, please say something about your family and why you want to eat no sweets (or cut down on sweets). We will keep a list of how we are doing and what we resisted.
We are two working parents and two dds (7 yo and 9 yo). Dh does the shopping and always seems to buy and/or prepare sweets. My kids are absolutely addicted. I think sugar has no nutritional value and is detrimental to good health, so I am trying to cut it out.
1 Resisted pound cake, a birthday cake, and a box of chocolates (I think I will save the chocolates as a reward on Feb. 1)
2 Resisted monkey bread
