Hi mustloseweight- For me, I'm trying to avoid foods where the first or second ingredient is sugar in any form. I'm only referring to processed foods. I am allowing myself any/all fruits. I also allow myself a hot cocoa (which I'm sure has sugar as the top 2 ingredients) but because it's not somethi...

Hi everyone - I'd love to join in as well. I'm giving up most sugar in the form of highly processed treats. If sugar is the 1st or 2nd ingredient, I'm considering it off limits for the most part..even on weekends. I'm trying to do this for a year if I can...more as an experiment in how it affects me...

Hi Sinnie - Thanks for your comments. We really do have a lot in common! I do not need to lose weight though I'd say I prefer to be around 115 for my height and build (I'm 5'5) I tend to fluctuate about 5-7 pounds which is probably not even very noticeable to anyone other than me but the fluctuation...

I've been slipping lately and finding myself focusing more on dieting and food and so I'm hoping to reset again. I find my best success is when I log so I'm going to start that again. I've also gotten rid ...
