  • Tried but especially during the holiday period when you got all these sweet stuff right in your face temptation is bad!

    • Day 21 I think. I started a day before fakhari and I’m 6 days behind so technically I’m 5 days behind him. That’s how I’m keeping up.Fakhri-bin-Ali I’m counting on you to stay on track so I don’t loose count 😬


      I feel good and I’m back on track and busy doing a million things so I think I’ll be fine from here.

      I’ll be honest though Any treat I had has been sugar free in these last couple of days. Technically there is no real sugar in them so maybe it’s cheating but I’m still on track. I’ve found a loop hole!

        Yeah. Too much. I don't know how it is with Pakistanis but with Bengalis anytime people come over you get bags of sweets and chocolates, cakes (along with fruit), etc.


        They're apparently planning on banning unhealthy snacks from next to checkouts. Not sure how much of a difference it'll make for people but at least it's something, even if a while away yet.

        My brother was on this with me but there were just too many chocolate and snacks piled up in the kitchen.

        I think it was the shiny gold wrappers in those Ferrero Rocher boxes winking at him each time he passed by that did it in the end. :|

        16 days I think, for him.

        Can't say I wasn't disappointed, since he'd said he reckoned it would be a breeze when he'd taken the challenge.

          No. Keep going, sister, for as long as possible, inshaa'Allah, as much as possible.

          • Day 28. Alhamdulillaah.

            Was wavering for a moment yesterday about having a glass of apple juice offered. Had to put it down untouched when they'd gone... The little ones know by now I'm avoiding sugar but they're coming over at different times in the day offering me their little chocolates and those little fizzy sweets they like so much, maybe hoping they can make me have one forgetfully(!)

              They are cheeky, these small people, don't underestimate them
              It's because they KNOW you aren't going to eat their favourite sweets that's why they're teasing

              That's my theory

              My little friends don't offer me goodies because they know what I am *whispers* *addict*

              Sometimes I ask them and it will be a sharp 'NO!!!'

              As if I want their touched chocolate anyways

                            I am but sometimes you just need a cookie. I got these sugar free ones. I guess they use stevia.

                            ive also started cutting down on carbs in general and trying to eat more protein this past week or so and it’s actually really helped take away cravings.

                            • I think I’ll start this too Insha allah. I did quit sugar in my hot drinks two years ago and haven’t brought any white sugar in my house since then so maybe it’s time for the next step

                              I will find bread & pasta hard to quit though :|

                              • Right, time to do this In Sha Allah. Reduce sugar but not saying no to it.

                                Forge ahead!
