Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
I’m right there with you! I’ve gone 15 days so far with VERY little sugar. I still have it with my coffee because darnit…I HAVE to have coffee and the only sugar is what comes in my creamer and yesterday I switched to sugar free creamer…YIKES. The no sugar thing seems to be “working”...I think i’m actually more alert and so far, weight is coming off. You CAN do this!!!
Oh, sister…ten days? No problem. I did no sugar for six weeks. That’s forty-two days. And that makes me better than Jesus.
(Don’t tell him I said that.)
But seriously, the first few days are the worst. After that, you start to get some of the cravings out of your system and it definitely gets easier.
Also? My trick? Coconut milk. Pour it over berries and call it dessert.
You can totally do it. I’ve been no sugar for 3 months now and I barely miss it. Except for ice cream and chocolate and….. Who am I kidding, I totally miss it, but feel great so it is worth it!
I did this last summer bc of a study my husband found that indicated low carb might keep Fibro symptoms in check. (It seemed to work for me, and I’ve slowly gone back off of it.)
My advice, consider yourself diabetic, approach all your meals as if you CAN’T have sugar (or carbs.) Instead of concentrating on what you can’t have, consider what a diabetic would have in place of the sugar-laden item; i.e.-sugar-free ice cream or frozen yogurt.)
MamaSpeak, I’m actually pre-diabetic (thank you shitty genes!) and my insulin is really high so in a way, I should eat like this all the time. I just set a short limit so I can succeed. Then I’ll try another ten days..
Andrea, it’s good to know it’s worth it! I might need you to remind me again after dinner. #icecreamicecream
Tara, I just saw your palio diet and holysnap, girl! You’re hardcore! You ARE better than Jesus.
Marj: Fist Bump! We can DOOOEEETT
Wait… does that include wine or is it actual consumption of sugar crystals? If it includes wine then you are a better woman than I. But you CAN do it! See you tomorrow.
Wouldn’t that be 25% then?
heh, yes it would. I totally did this to make fun of my friend who said TWENTY. HA! (I pointed this small math fact out but yaknow, it’s more fun to say this publicly)
