  1. I think I overreacted because of my relapse.
    I will continue to report positive developments and achievements.

    Set back on thursday, ate delicious cake. (but a bit too much)
    On Friday I ate some sweets again, not really crazy much but still (probably 40 to 50g of sugar)

    So today is my day 0 again :)

    Day 0 again. I am going to hold off for the challenge a while.
  6. I started again.
    My rule is: no sugar unless I'm eating sweets in company with others. In that case I can practice to eat mindfully, joyfully and with restraint.

    I am on 0/90. I have to be more aware of what goes on in my mind when I feel the urge to eat sugar. For today I'm going to fast if I can, because yesterday I gorged on sweets. I've never fasted before so wish me luck. It's really hard and I tried many times.

    It's better to eat something nutritious before fasting, I think it's harder after "day of gluttony" ;-)
    If you haven't tried it before start with Intermittent Fasting (IF), e.g. skip breakfast every second day, then try without breakfast and lunch, etc.

    There's nice book about fasting: 'The Complete Guide to Fasting' by Jason Fung, I can honestly recommend it :emoji_nerd:

    good luck :emoji_thumbsup:
  9. Reset. I bought two tablets (200g) of chocolate and ate it all on one afternoon. I did a lot of exercise later that day, so my conscience was calmed, but I think so much sugar on one take is still unhealthy for my body.
    I need to take this more serious!

    I did the keto diet earlier this year. My body went into a sugar withdrawal that was no fun at all. People don't realize that we are all addicts. Our bodies weren't built for this.

  11. I did IF once for 17 or 18 hours. (Good!)
    Other than that, with sugar it got really bad, typical pre-Christmas period. I think I should find a way to reduce sugar at least to some amount.
    No sweets on my own and not more cake or sweets than anybody else - these rules would help a great deal!

  16. SUGARed.
    I'm used to abstain from porn. But when I go against my eating habits I feel as I'm at war against myself. It's crass!
    I'm sucking too much for going full no sugar.
    I'll continue to monitor though. From now on these are my categories:

    no sugar at all
    a little sugar
    much sugar
    sugar, but together with others and in moderation

    today: much sugar (two pieces of cake)

    1st got lemonade for lunch, then everything went wrong
    back from 33d streak to Day 0
    feeling frustrated or disappointed with myself... again...

  18. You did it for 33 days! Instead of beating yourself up you should pat yourself on the shoulder!
    Now you got lemonade for lunch and then you got back the taste of it so that your brain made you consume more sugar. So what? Does a single "cheat day" hurt you in any way? No!
    Given you make another streak of 33 days now, then have another involuntary cheat day and finally make a third streak of 33 days (in total 99 sugar-free days and 3 days with sugar)
    - would that really be so different to a streak of 90 sugar-free days?

    Yes, in terms of goal-reaching: you missed it. You can't reach the goal (you probably had in mind) "90 days sugar free" in 60 days from now anymore. But is it that bad?

    You may not agree with me. And that's ok. But one thing I tell you is important: don't fortget to value what you did well! Don't forget to praise yourself!
