I would just like to share that I was given a novelty 5kg jar of nutella as a christmas present from my mother.

I sighed, yet another useless gift from mum I have to regift. She knows I have a troubled relationship with sugar. I had even told her I had hypoglycemia. and that I get symptoms such as a 'sleep coma' 'heart wobbles' 'swollen toungue' 'fatigue' when I consumed too much sugar.

Anyway not having officially starting my 'sugar free' life, I decided to have a few spoonfuls (5) as my last sugar binge. It was the worst feeling I ever had afterward and couldn't sleep all night and when I did sleep I had nightmares.

It must have been pretty traumatic for me because now 8 days in I still look at the jar in my kitchen and I am not even tempted, not even a little bit. I am still on holidays so waiting to start back at work to give it away.

I am quite proud of my willpower. I know that I will now be sugar free for life! Especially now that I found the fructose free chocolate online!!

Oh NicNic, so sorry. I always see gifts like that as a kind of 'enabling'. Not quite intentional, but it is there non-the-less.

A good friend, sort of knows I'm sugar free, but it doesn't compute. Recently sent me a parcel filled with sample sized chocolate. Because I don't have any sugar whatsoever, and chocolate doesn't call out to me anymore, I threw them in the bin. Can't give them my neighbour as her hubby is Type I diabetic.

I remember in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, when Ian was explaining he was vegetarian, and one of the rellies said oh you can eat lamb then Smile I call it selective sight, speech, memory.

If it were me, and its not, I would have thrown it in the bin.

Keep up the great work.

I have been sugar free for 3 1/2 years and my mum still gives me a box of chocolates every year.

I have tried to tell her I don't eat them. Oh well lol

It is like a selective memory sabotage thing. It is why some husbands still bring their wives a block of chocolate even though they know they don't eat it.

If you canít be disciplined, get small chocolate bars like 30 or 50 g and have one a day. When I needed to lose weight before my friendís wedding I had a hot chocolate or 50 g of any chocolate a day. I lose weight without sacrificing!
