You can do this TooSweet. I just finished my 14 days and it was a good challenge to myself.  I was stronger than I thought. I had said that doesn't mean I would hop  back into the 'sweet' but I found myself baking a batch  of modified umpadoodles last night in anticipation of being able to have "something" with my coffee again.

Intrigued...what are umpadoodles?
May you be blessed in all your endeavors, but most importantly, may you be humble. God keep you.

Umpa's version of snickerdoodles. I use a combination of almond and flax instead almond and soy flour. Half recipe makes 20 at about 0.3carbs per cookie. Yummo.  I also like my cookies thin and a bit crunchy so I flatten them and then they spread also.  They not little, they  a reasonable size.  They seem soft when cool, but U keep in fridge and they harden up.  Served them to friends and they like them.  They just think homemade cookies - which of course they are.;)

Thanks Taby   ;D  No...I don't stray very far now that I am maintaining.  I think I have an advantage with having diabetes so to speak (if you could ever think of having it as an advantage  :-\ ) If I fall very far from this lifestyle I notice it right away and actually feel physically sick.  :P :P When something makes you sick to eat it....you learn to not indulge yourself  Haha  Plus I'm with Tony....most of those old foods I used to have to have really taste awful to me now.  I don't ever want to have to be back on those meds that is for sure  ;D

Thanks Morgan!  You did great!!   ;D  You really have inspired me to try this.  Those Umpadoodles sound pretty good!  I haven't had any of those for a while.  I'll put those on the list to have something to look forward to  Haha

Nope...not me  when they are there I feel like I have to have one everyday until they are gone  :-\  I'm sure it is a mind over matter thing because I have plenty of sweets in the house and those coconut ice creams are still there.  I want some but I am determined to not give in.  I want to enjoy food as it was intended for a while...naturally.   Dougs idea of the strawberries is a good one.  I usually have to add sweetness to them when I eat them......I bet they will taste sweeter to me now  ;) ;)

 :D :D :D   We might have to Umpa  Haha 

I'm feeling pretty good today.  My wings were huge though and I was pretty full when I finished.  Usually I carry some home with me but ate more than usual and had to leave some.  :'(   The hubs and I went to a movie after and I knew they wouldn't last in the car.   It's one of my favorite places to go  ;D

Day 4

Because I had so much chicken yesterday with my wings meal I decided to go with veggies most of the day. 

6:30 am usual coffee x 2 = 0 net carbs

11:00 am   
1 1/2 cup of steamed cauliflower, broccoli and mushrooms with butter and parmesan cheese = 5.5 net carbs

7:00 pm 
2 servings of pulled pork bought at Sam's Club = 2 net carbs
1 Joseph's pita = 4 net carbs
sauteed green beans = 3 net carbs

Water water water    :) 

So far so good  ;D
