Success with Only No Sugar Plan

I’m too busy to exercise and I refuse to diet for fear of the yo-yo that I grew up watching my mother play. Starve, gain, starve, gain more. My clothes were getting too tight, then I went two sizes larger. I had to do something. So, I cut out sweets. Guess what. It is working! I’ve lost 11 lbs in a month. I’m smaller now than I’ve been in 11 years, since having twins. The shrinking stopped after five pounds, for about two weeks. Not sure why, but I stuck with it. Then I started to shrink again. Oh joy. Down to 133.4 this morning.

    I also have to cut out sugar to lose weight. I also count my calories but it seems like the only way I have success is if I just say no to sugar. Plus, it’s a great motivator because when I get to goal I can start eating sugar again! I’m down 12 pounds so far!

    Honestly, cutting out sugar does wonders for me as well. It just cuts down the food cravings so much. When I eat sugar I just cannot stop being hungry, even when I am incredibly full.

    Over my last several attempts at weight loss I had noticed that one little (or rather large but brief) binge on sugar could completely make me fall off of a months-long, otherwise successful diet. This time I am making a direct effort to avoid sugar as much as possible. So far it is working.
