Just how much sugar I use!

I'll admit I LOVE chocolate, it's one of my most favorite things in the world. But I don't buy it. I'm also pretty particular as to what kind of chocolate so the CHristmas chocolates I was given were eaten by the kids or by dh. So it's not the treats that are my enemy.

But i love sweetened tea, coffee, hot chocolate, cappucino. I have several cups a day, it's -OMG outside, it warms and soothes me. I love it. But it adds up fast.

Since i haven't done my weightloss menu plans yet, and haven't done shopping yet, there's no point in me officially starting the weight loss plan. I start when I have the right tools in the house, aka food. BUT what I AM DOING, right now, is journalling what I am currently eating and am am weaning myself off the sweetened drinks, when I have 3 or 4 cups of tea a hot chocolate, a international coffee in a day, that is a TON of sugar!!!

But I never realized it. I am doing alot of sugar right now. If I can cut that back it'll be a big help. I am drinking oolang tea right now, it's one tea I don't mind unsweetened with no cream. This will cut back on lots of calories. With it cold I love the warm drinks, I am naturally cold. Personally I think I might be related to vampires. Pale, cold, low iron. Need to work on that too.*mental note make appt with naturopath.*

I also know i am very guilty of NOT eating. I don't often eat until 2 or 3 pm. So I need to break that habit too.

Not much progress but baby steps.... sure and steady finishes the marathon. NO sprints for this gal.

    Have you tried an herbal or fruit "tea" (more properly a tisane and I bet you know that!)?

    Some of those are quite good without sugar or even with just the faintest amount. I know what you mean about how much sugar goes into those drinks; I love me a nice hot cup of sweet milky tea or coffee.
