Hi welcome 👋👋

I have a massive sweet tooth🙈🙈

I'm trying to replace it with fruit 😒 but I have come across some apples that are sweet (not to much for my sensitive teeth) and hit the spot if I have 2 🙈


Hi Skinny2 i used to eat chocolate sweets cake and biscuits all the time gradually over the last 18 months it has reduced and 6 wks ago I started calorie counting. I found that if I ate a more expensive brand of chocolate I soon felt the more ordinary bars were too sweet and I didn't want them so I stuck to buying expensive stuff and stopped buying sweets and cheaper chocolate so I could have my more expensive fix. Gradually I have found the craving for a daily fix reduce and over the last 6 wks have had 2 v small amounts of the very dark stuff and although it doesn't give me the hit that I used to get it is enough and I'm content with it. Biscuits have virtually dropped off the radar too I do have a couple of plain ones if I feel nauseous but I count them into my daily calories so I don't feel that's too bad it's just realising that you have to keep in your calorie range so I write everything down. I still haven't got into the planning of my meals daily but I am cooking from fresh now. Sometimes it's so hard to get your head in the right place but I'm sure you can if you want to lose those extra pounds - good luck 😁


Welcome to the start of the rest of your life, however daunting it may seem you’ll do great!

Fruit is a great natural sugar, maybe replace your snacks with fruit and plenty of water! It’s helped me loads!

I’m more of a savoury person and struggle with that still on occasion but I’m getting there slowly but surely!

Good luck! :D
