    Oh, yes! :nod The afternoons are tougher on me too. I have a 45 minute commute to pick my daughter up from school each afternoon, I had gotten into the BAD BAD habit of getting something sweet to snack on or to drink, which led me to more sweet stuff.

    I can resist the flavored coffee my dh has in the morning, I can resist the stuff the kids pack in their lunches, but last evening the SF jello called me quite loudly! I let the kids eat their dessert and I folded a load of laundry then went to bed, quickly.

    Okay, I've been away over the weekend and what do I see? A challenge has already been created - wow! :joy You guys are awesome!

    I've already completed my two weeks of sweetener-free life, but I have every intention to continue that way. It's been three weeks now, and I feel awesomely in control. Case in point: I have four bars of the best chocolate in the world on my table, which have been there for a WEEK now, and I don't even think about them. And this from a major chocoholic! (The reason those chocolates are there is that they're goodbye-gifts for my friends, since I'm moving next week).

    I do still get tempted, of course. For me, it seems that smells do the trick. If I see chocolate/cookies or such, I don't mind really, but the smell of them when people eat them just does me in. It's very difficult in church afterwards, everyone eats and I'm hungry but have to wait for my lunch. I've done it, though - three times in a row now! :yikes

    Well, sign me up for the next two weeks anyway. I'm going for the month!

    Cheers

    I want to be thin. I want to be a runner. Why can't I get it into my head that both things require work??

    Well...I was 'clean' on Sunday, 9/12 but drank a cup of coffee with cream and 2 packets of splenda this morning. Bad, bad girl :sadblinky

    Like you, Pammie, I so look forward to having my coffee in the morning but I don't have any at home and don't order it with dinner out, so it's just a week day habit.

    Try to make a diligent effort tomorrow.

    Yippie! Another day with no sweetners!

    I keep reminding myself--"I only have to do one day at a time."

    This is definitely the toughest challenge I've done so far. I made it through Day 2, but geeeeeze, it wasn't easy. And I'm "hyper" -- more energy than normal and I'm normally pretty high energy! I went to the fitness center and did my normal 45 minutes of nautilus equipment, then trotted over to the indoor track and BRISKLY walked a mile on top of that! Then I've been on and off my stair-stepper at home all day, just trying to get rid of this nervous, bouncy energy! I hope this calms down soon cuz I'm driving everyone NUTS.

    Day 2 for me... No sweetener used....

    Actually, I did not use any sweetener in the last 2 weeks of my induction... So, it is not going to be too difficult for me to stay sweetener free for the next 2 weeks.... :yes

    However, I do have chocolate cravings... I keep wanting to eat something chocolatey.... :no

    I was a chocoholic. :sadblinky Prior to starting Atkins, I was averaging a bag of brownies every 2 days, and a KitKat bar every day for a month. :yikes

    I actually put on 10 pounds in that one month! :yikes
