Well it has been 10 days since I read this post and it took me a couple of days to really stick to the dairy free and sugar free diet. But, I finally decided to just quit whinning and do it! Well I did and I have lost 5.8 lbs in about a week. I am eating as much food as I want, Idon't even try to limit portions. I eat when I am hungry and I am NOT craving anything. I have never in my life been able to say that. I have always wondered why other people could diet and have success and all I did was crave more food and was miserable! I have been so happy, full of energy and I went to 4 open houses yesterday and I ate the fresh fruit, fresh veggies and pork that was roasted on a pit. I woke up this morning and lost .8 of a pound from yesterday and I feel great. I actually am waking up earlier and getting moving. I kind of realized sugar was a problem a month ago or so when I baked a traditional GF cake that called for 2 cups of sugar and I even made it grain free, with flours that have no grain and everytime I made it I would just eat like a pig until it was gone and crave it for days and days. NOw I know why, NO MORE SUGAR for me!!!!! Thanks for the suggestion it really is working!!!!!!
