Hey starla,
I dont like stevia either.. its bitter to me and not great in coffee.. I use good ol splenda for now at.>1 carb per teaspoon. Taste pretty good considering its not sugar.

My off brand has less carbs than the big brand for some reason. Ask Umpa tho shes got a list! :0) And TooSweet and Andrea also are on target.

This program is so not stressful... My days having to not eat all day or watch every little thing and feeling bad after I eat at all is gone. This is a simple adjustment and is working.

I am so doing that TooSweet! I went all crazy buying stuff the day I started and was excited to see all the choices we had at our Kroger Store but man that Carb Creep is verrrry sneeky lol

I am making that Almond Milkshake! Yumm! I had punkin casserole for breakfast and love that to! I made it from the punkin mash recipe Doug did on FB lol

Way to go Scottinflorida! Have fun on your run! Sounds like you are gaining muscles from all the good exercise you are doing?! :)

Hey Starla! Umpa and Andrea are so right... I also am a woman of a certain age and my fiance' and his family are straight off the boat from Dublin Ireland.. they are all about the sweets and meat and potatoes. Cholesterol runs very high in his family and he is looking at how this works for me to go on with me... but trust me.. I got the stares when I bought heavy cream for my coffee and all the yummy cheez for my eggs... They are still offering me sweets at tea time with my coffee and I say no thank you politely 5 times! lol Let em sneer while you eat sugar free cake and like TooSweet talks about.. NO guilt... One day at a time .. they will change with you but mostly you will put you first for once like Umpa says... we are always doing something for someone else as moms and wives and its really okay to go against the norm thats makin you not healthy. You got this.... we are right there with you.

Hi Starla, Welcome!! :) :)

 I am new also and am on track. I had a rough first week with all those cravings you typed about here and more. I personally told my "3-year old sugar addicted brain" to get a gripp and then I had to choose my pain. So I personally had to choose the Pain of eating everything my " 3 year old  inner voice" that has the bad habit of sugar and carbs galore then not fitting into my clothes and NOt having any energy and getting totally depressed because I feel so bad all the time. The pain I chose was to be inconvenienced a little to learn more about better choices that taste every bit as good as my bad choices but dont make me fat and miserable. So I dont know if that helps you .. to have a conversation with your little self that may be wanting you to just give up and do whatever you want without benefit to your body , mind and souls energy. I was so hard on myself for so long and had to just decide. A). Do nothing and continue getting the same results or B). Try something that just might work and make me happier and live a little stronger for my family.

This forum is really great for all the questions you have and the recipes really are a good substitute for any favorite food you love... Umpa is a Goddess of All Carbs converted to Not make you fat so lean on her post often!
Welcome to the new life you are gonna have now and congrats on taking that first step! We are here for you also!
