I am 44 years old & moved from Georgia to Washington State. I have had many start overs. At one point in my life (about 8 years ago) I weighed around 175 and that is where I felt and looked the best.

Before moving I had great habits getting up every morning & working out before commuting to work. Now I work from home (still on EST time) so being at work at 5am does not really allow me time to exercise prior.

This is my last start over. I am tired of the aches & pains. Celiacs runs in the family & I believe I am gluten allergic. Regardless I know when I cut out the carbs my aches & pains mysteriously go away. The fog lifts. That is enough for me. Diabetes runs in the family & I don't want to get this or manage with medication. Cancer runs in the family & research I have seen shows that cancer thrives off of sugar; I want to avoid all of these health problems!

I have had many start overs & finally am back in clothes that I moved to WA state, from GA, & have not been able to wear in 7 years (at least). I will NOT go back. I refuse to go back. I am learning to love running & my body composition is changing. I can wear these smaller clothes that I was wearing when I was 15-20# lighter so it is all working.

I have a few new buddies on here so hopefully if I go MIA this time someone will message me and pull me back in.

Any other sugar addicts out there who have stopped eating sugar?
Hey Ruth - I believe one reason that low carb works for me is because it is pretty much no sugar...hahaha. I feel so much better off of it and I don't know if it is the grains in the breads or the sugars that were making my joints ache; I just know that within days of cutting them out the aches were gone. I am so happy that you are doing well and very happy to be on this journey with you!

I like the splenda too and now that they have it with fiber it is yet another way to get a little extra fiber in my diet.

I think Christie (from the group) posted something on this and I think she mixes it with swerve....I could be wrong...but I think I saw where someone said it was kind of bitter to cook with unless you mix it with swerve or something else.

For women: Anyone on the Depo Shot with issues?
When I was on the depo I would still have spotting sometimes...typically when it neared the end of the 3 month period and was close to time to get my next shot. My daughter experiences this same thing (as I did) while on the depo herself now.
It is a good idea to get checked out but I wouldn't fret over it too much.

So didn't do great Saturday. We went boating and I shared a nachos with a friend and had some vodka. Otherwise I was good, but still it could be enough ...
