I am not sure if the sugar detoxification is over or the worst of it is over, but weeks three & four went much better than anticipated.  I wasn’t as hangry & I am discovering new low smart point snacks and treats.  

For instance, sugar free Jell-O is zero points and it is one of the rare sugar free treats which doesn’t taste “sugar free”.  

Look at the above photo of ultimate decadence; two sugar free Jell-Os for zero points and reduced fat whipped cream, one or two points – cannot beat that!  It satisfies the sweet tooth. 

I have been getting creative in how to stretch my points so making an omelette with one regular egg & then egg whites loaded with vegetables & a bit of feta cheese & smothered in zero SPs salsa, with half my plate loaded with fresh fruit and despite the natural occurring sugars present in fruit- it is a big fat zero for SPs.  

Why have a slice of pizza for 10 or more SPs when you can have a whole pita pizza to yourself for seven or eight points.  Satisfies those wicked late night pizza cravings and feta cheese is always a winner for me.  

So, on week three I dropped 2.4 lbs, but week four I only dropped .9 lbs.  I have lost a total of 8.1 lbs in four weeks, which isn’t so bad.  

Slow & steady right! I am not expecting much for week five as I have been stressed out about some uncertainty in where I will be living.  I will explain more later…

Until next time, I will keep “biting & writing”.  

Peace & love – Rachel
