    There’s always Monday!

    My husband had high triglycerides and had to essentially give up sugar, and I was shocked at the amount of sugar in a lot of prepared goods (i.e., pasta sauce). I make most things from scratch and watch the sugar – for him. For me, I still enjoy the occasional chocolate.

    Funny thing is after years of very little sugar, when he DOES have sugar he feels like utter crap, headachy, etc. I guess it’s just what you get used to.

    This is why I do not make resolutions. That said, I have a fabulous pancake recipe that has no added sugar in it. Sweeten it with some apples or applesauce and you’re good to go.

    Man, giving up sugar is so hard! Good for you that you did it at all. 4 weeks is a long time! And now you can see that for sure it is an addiction, because you totally binged, right? Still: good for you to do it at all.

    And: that coffee cake is totally my downfall. Sooooo good!!!

    Wow Rebecca! Congratulations for staying free for as long as you have ~ that is amazing!!! I go for about a week at best and then I’m scouring the cupboards …. looking for something! I quit baking from about September through to December just so there wouldn’t be anthing tempting around. I can easily pass on storebought treats. Then Christmas hit & I had to bake & havent’t really gotten off it again. Tomorrow’s another day, eh?

    I must confess. I am a mistress of the marshmallow man.

    I would never even try to give up all but natural sugars so kudos to you for lasting an entire month!

    I’m way more of a salt girl than a sugar girl….I don’t even like chocolate (what is wrong with me??) so I feel like giving up sugar wouldn’t be that hard on me. But I know it would, not being able to have granola and yogurt just seems so wrong. But if someone asked me to give up chips? Pretzels? Crackers? And God forbid cheese – I just could’t do it. Good luck!

      It’s crazy because I never had a sweet tooth at all before I had kids. And who would ever give up cheese?! Quelle horreur!
