omg - no sugar!

Testing my will - no sugar for a week! eeep! I feel faint. But, truth is I was feeling pretty comatose after a few pounds of butterfingers and a few cubic feet of cake! So, I thought I'd give it a run - just for a week. And I'm not insane about it - reading labels to look for 2 grams of sugar in the bread or anything. I've just excluded the obvious suspects - cake, candy, cookies, ice cream.
In some ways it leaves me nothing to eat, based on my usual diet. But in some ways it opens up lots of options, like sandwiches for lunch, and real dinners where I haven't spoiled my appetite. Hmmm. This is odd. Three days in a row with breakfast - day 1 = scrambled eggs and cheese; day 2 = oatmeal with almonds and raisins; day 3 = leftover pizza. Can't say I feel better really, not yet anyway. But I don't feel worse either.

My secret weapon is a package of Skinny Cow sugar free ice cream sandwiches - surprisingly good really, though they melt quickly . . . .

Oh how brave you are. I flat out refuse to eat fat free anything. Though I have been know to give up sugar. Hope all is well.

Hey Kim - I don't know what I was thinking! I'm with you on the fat free thing, and the no sugar seems to be going ok - 5 days as of today. It's weird, but ok.
