I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!!!!!!!! I have a cookie here if you want it. Yes we made oreo cookies and there is 2 left. You know you have a crazy bad craving when all you can find in the house is a few stray chocolate chips in the freezer door mixed in with spilled baking soda. I just brushed them off and ate them. I'm so crazy! But it was good and the only thing chocolate in the house. I too have to have something with sugar after every meal. I hate it! My cravings are taking over my life and leaving me with a ton of FAT rolls. I need to exercise then I can eat what I want and I know if I eat too much I have to exercise more, but I can't find that desire. I think about it at night but by the time the morning rolls around it's gone. What do I do?

I have the exact same "sugary" habit. My body thinks, "Hey! I just ate a meal. Where's my reward?" It's horrible. I've been trying to eat fruit instead of treats when I'm craving something sweet, but it doesn't really fill the hole in my soul.

I get really "snacky" when I play board games. I can't play a game without a bowl of M&Ms or a candy bar or a cookie. I start to twitch.

My sil went off treats for Lent, too! I never pay attention to when it starts. I'm excited for you, Amy! You'll feel so good at the end. I've been craving a bit of sweets lately, too . . . it comes and goes in waves for me. I have been mediocre at restraining . . . allowing dessert at the in-laws', buying a single chocolate bar, for example.

Carrots are a good thing! I've heard oranges with their high vitamin c content is a better substitution.

How about fruit? Is that sweet enough?

Oh man, can I sympathize. I have an overwhelming sugar addiction. I will give it up for weeks at a time, only to be sucked back in. It makes me glad I've never tried heroin. I'm pretty sure I'd be living in an alley somewhere if I had...
Gretchen inherited my Sugar Habit. The first thing she asks for in the morning is candy!!!
(Thanks for the tip about sunscreen, BTW. I'm keeping her scar totally covered with a band aid for a while. I'm so paranoid she's going to go headfirst into a random wall & bust it open again! AhhhHHHhhh!)

I also have a wicked sweet tooth, but I've learned through fasting that if you wait out your craving, it'll often go away.

As my cousin says, "laziness often will thwart cravings" :)

Mm, cookies. I am proud of you for giving it up for lent! I loved doing lent last year; even though most mormon's don't practice it, I really think it makes Easter just a little more meaningful.

(This I say as I eat a giant piece of cheesecake left over from lunch today. How hypocritical of me!!) :)

Judy

Yeah, like everyone else I can sooo relate, Amy. You are much MUCH stronger than I. This is why I find myself sitting in the 'obese' category on all the charts ... still ...

I have a friend on Facebook who writes hilarious status lines. The other day he wrote, "I gave up breathing for Lent. It has been really hard." Ha!
