Hope your baby comes on time..
I have really fancied some chocolate today,

Missing my bedtime hot chocolate as well

Nz is New Zealand. Sorry kiwis (new Zealanders) call it Nz all the time so it's habit.
I had some fudge yesterday. I'm not officially starting until baby us here but I still felt guilty which is a good sign I suppose.

David Gillespie says eating sugar in the first weeks that you are trying to give up causes your cravings to worsen (ha ha easier said than done). I find though (having given up before) I'm happy with one chocolate square to get through the craving if it's bad.

When is your next weigh in?

How are you doing this week?

Have you heard of the Whole 30? I may try a Whole7. (A week instead of a month lol - baby steps).

Second week weigh in only a 3/4 pound weigh loss. ( disappointed but just hoping it is one of those week when the weigh comes off in a few more days.
I will not give in, I made my self a rule that if I lose 2 pound or more in the same week, I can have a day off from my diet, but still no sugar...

That will have to wait until next week now x

Just checked out the whole 30 diet.
I think that one is for me, I wouldn't be able to avoid all them foods.
I am really struggling some days to stay on my diet, I am buying chocolates and donuts and cakes for my children, so they are always on the side.

I am pleased that I have been able to not eat bad things soo far....
My next weigh in is 21st January, hoping to of lost 1 to 2 pounds......

Hello hello (to the tune of the Beatles lol).

My baby is finally here so I guess I had better start sugar free properly soon. But it's hard when being famed by a birthing centre lol so I guess I start Wednesday.

I know time is short when you're a mum but have you thought about making sugar free treats for your kiddies so if it's there and you're tempted then you know you're still eating well. When I do find the time (it's not always easy) I make ice cream from frozen bananas and frozen berries. Just take them out of the freezer, defrost for 15 ish minutes and put in blender. Or make sugar free chocolate. I know it can be expensive though especially if you're kids gnaw through them.

Everything you eat has some form of sugar in it. Best thing to do is to cut down on carbs and to drink plenty of water. Eat lean meats and veggies and fruits.

I can honestly say a no sugar diet is the easiest way to loose weight and that's from someone who is currently diagnosed with gestational diabetes and 36 weeks pregnant. Upon finding out I had GD I was switched to a low carb, high fat and high protein don't. Iv lost 7kg in 8 weeks and thats with continuing to grow a baby at a time when I should be gaining the most weight.

The diet involves no calorie counting and is fairly simple.
*Only eating unrefined or unprocessed foods.
*Eating foods with less than 15g of carbs per 100g weight (that's total carbs not those that sugar)
*aiming to eat two servings of carbs with each meal - that would be about 30g
*bot eating low fat foods, fat is incredibly important and needed to counteract the effect sugar has on the body - try to eat high protein and fat with each carb serving and ofcourse a large serving of green vegetables
*remembering that all carbs turn to sugar, not just sweet things.
