I had gotten to the place where I wanted something sweet after every meal and I had gained about 15 lbs. after maintaining for 5 years.
Several months ago I saw a team entitled "ONE HUNDRED DAYS TO A NEW YOU".
I joined it and immediately said I will go 100 days without sweets. A teammate befriended me and that helped as she wanted to do the same. (she later disappeared)
She encouraged me by saying after a week it would be so much easier. And it has been!!! I am so proud that I have gone 72 days without sweets and am just 6.4 lbs. away from my goal.
I have discovered that when you fill your body with good solid food, not idle calories, you don't get very hungry.
My 100 days will end just before my 60th wedding anniversary and I will have some sweets for a few days, then go back to complete another 100 days with NO Sweets!
(BTW - I bake all the time, dip chocolates, and make others happy, but I don't even lick my finger.)
