  1. I've been eating like shit. My acne is about the same. Surprisingly I'm feeling confident though. It's odd?
  2. I have severe acne on neck, back, and on my scalp. The only thing working is eliminating the sugar. All my breakouts are so reduced after only 3 days without any processed food or refined sugar... It's just so hard to stick to this. It's almost the weekend and all I can think about is how to eat copious amounts of sugar. :'(
  3. Thoughts on day 3: Yesterday I was craving Oreos like an insane person. I began rationalizing it and telling myself I'll start this no sugar thing on the first of the new year. But I distracted myself and made it to day 3. Distracting myself was basically forcing myself to go to sleep because auughhhh the cravings were TOO REAL. Lolol Anyways, I'm better off for it today because the cystic acne that was so painful has not only decreased in size, but also is at about 10% or less of the or

It just really sucks, but I have no option but to quit. My current breakfast is a green smoothie 2-3 cups of greens (sp
  6. I'll post here with you on and off. :3 Man it was tough over the holiday weekend. I broke down and over indulged too. It's time to make a big change though.
  7. I messed up but I'm starting again on Wednesday. If you want to start with me or post your updates here, feel free! It'd be awesome to have a partner to keep up with in this. I don't have anyone else.
  8. Yes we can! Thanks for replying, hope you're well. It's gonna get tougher, but I try to tell myself that this isn't forever and I just need time to heal my gut.
