I'm going to quit eating sugar. - May 27th 2013, 11:19 PM

I'm already pretty healthy, but I haven't been able to kick my sugar addiction. My family has a lot of obesity and diabetes in it because we love our sweets, so I'm going to break the chain.

Today, I decided that I'm going to go a full year without eating any sugar. I'm even gonna get one of those neat little time counter things and put it in my signature.


I'm super excited about this! It's a test of inner determination, and I love those sorts of things, plus it'll just make me healthier. Go Anna!


Hehe.

Nope, actually sugar is toxic, and contacts the same receptors in the brain as cocaine. Sounds pretty darn unhealthy to me, lol.

And today has been day one! No sugar so far, not even in salad dressing or anything. Just another three-hundred-sixty-four to go. ^_^

I'm sure some sugars may be 'toxic' but some are required to be able to live, like glucose O.o.

And by that reasoning you should also stop eating beans, because they actually are toxic.

Best of luck. Wish I could do what you do. I would quit eating sugar mainly for acne reasons.

Wow, a whole year without sugar. Good luck. Especially five months from tomorrow, which will be Halloween! And then the holidays and Valentine's day, where sweets are a staple.

I could never go a whole year.

You will earn alot of respect from me if you are able to accomplish this goal! I don't even think I'd be able to last a week without sugar! I hope that you reach your goal! Stay strong and keep us updated!


Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

I believe I've been a week without it, now!

Easy-peasy, so far. Of course, no one has tried to feed me pecan pie yet, so that test still stands to be faced, lol.
