    If you are willing to put in the time and effort, you may eventually even put Brittany Spears out of business

    Sugar is a no no for sure I haven't had anything with real processed sugar in such a long time, I can't stand ice cream, candy and cookies anymore

    Do you belong to a gym?
    I think you should start posting your meals and your workouts, and then we can see how we can help you

    Hey, though I agree sugar is a nasty, nasty demon I also believe in making small changes at first, especially if you are just starting out with a new outlook on healthy eating and working out and want to make it a change of lifestyle rather than a quick fix diet.
    It goes for both the diet and the training.
    If you take on too much too soon the chances are you won't adhere to it and will crash and burn, I've seen it happen many times before.
    Cutting out all sugar right off the bat to me is a wee bit extreme for the general population, cut it down first, make sure you're getting enough of the 'right' foods and go from there.
    Good luck SR and welcome to IM.

    Learn to love Splenda!!

    A nice sugar free treat for a sweet tooth:

    Strawberries, Fat free whip cream and Splenda!

    Hits the sweet tooth spot every time!!

    Don't look at what your doing as a diet. It is a life style change and it does take time to get into different eating habits.

    You have already taken the first step to a totally new you
    Was on a Ephedrine buying Frenzy before it was to late... Now, I've got enough stocked up to last 10 years!!

    Hey SugarRush! ( I just love that name!!)

    I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how much you will like the new you!!!

    Just remember, don't get discouraged if you don't see results right away. It takes a while.

    I used to eat nothing but junk food and candy and one day while looking in the mirror, I didn't recognize the person looking back at me and I decided it was time for a change. My Dr. wanted to put me on HB med and Cholesterol medicine. I decided to try it my way and change my life.

    I no longer have HB or high cholesterol and I like the person who is looking back at me in the mirrors these days.

    You can do it!!!

    If your already happy with who you are, then your probably not going to stick with strict eating regime.

    Like you said, it is not easy to do and in fact most people end up quiting after a month or two. The gym is full of people every Jan and by the end of Feb, you see the ranks thin out.

    If your happy and healthy, then there is no reason to make such a drastic change in your life as far as eating stuff goes. I changed because I was so out of shape and over weight I could not keep up with my 4 year old daughter and I was embarrassed to be seen without a shirt on. Now, my daughter can not keep up with her old dad!

    For health in general, you should just start working out and see what happens.

    You might find another side to yourself you did not know was there.

    My only question is how you can have a handle like that and not call your journal the Sugar Shack...

    Good luck on your goals. You'll get all the info you need hanging around here...

    Very good points. The fact is 90% of the people say that want to do this, but end up quitting. You are REALLY going to want to do this to succeed and also realize that you did not get into the shape you are in overnight and you are not going to change it overnight. It could take up to TWO YEARS to become a true hardbody.
