Goodness I've neglected you all for so long! Just an update...at 6 weeks I'm down 13.6 lbs! I have not been exercising enough..the difference is only that I've cut my sugar down to 15g or less a day.

I feel GREAT! I feel like I could do this forever.

Today I had a 3egg omelette for breakfast with sliced mushrooms, onion, and then some romano cheese and I didn't get hungry again until 3pm. For dinner I had a potato-lentil soup and I had a piece of dark chocolate and 8 crackers and old cheddar cheese for lunch. I KNOW I ate something else but can't remember what it was.

I just don't get hungry like I used to. And I don't feel deprived. I had my book launch party which included a huge cake and someone brought me a piece. I sampled it and it wasn't all that appetizing though I did sample some frosting later on!

I didn't have any health problems prior to this but I feel so level, so balanced that it has to be something affecting my hormones, keeping me from rising and falling.

Usually it was around the 6 week mark I'd start to slip on any diet I attempted. Today i was shocked to find it was the 6th week and I'd lost 2.6 lbs this week. So on I go, hopefully to carry on this way forever until I'm at a weight that is healthy.

One thing I can't say is if this is working because I'm ready for it or if it is physiological but it's certainly going well.

Today was assessment day at the gym! In a little under 4 weeks I'm down just over ten pounds and have lost eleven inches including two off my waist!

So sugar-free is the way to go!

The best thing is how simple it's been. It's simple not because I cut my sugar intake down to less than 15g per day but because once you do that the cravings go away so it's no longer a battle.

There is no calorie counting, no special meals, nothing except an awareness of where the sugar is(it is often very hidden) and some planning for your meals.

And there was no exercise as I've injured my foot.

I've been watching videos and reading reports from the experts and it turns out that sugar is toxic in large amounts. Not just the "good" sugar but all sugar including that in fruit. Your body doesn't know the difference. So you can have sugar but you must moderate the intake.

I feel fantastic, I definitely see a difference in how I look and I feel like I could live this way forever! I'm not saying I'll never eat cake but I know I won't eat it today.

So I'm in for another 4 weeks. Let's see how it all goes!
