...and I'll be to my half way point! Woo-Hoo! I've started anew in the blog department. Avoiding sugar did not work out well for me. I did give up, and wallow, and self pity, and gain some more weight, and topped out at about 220, and finally flipped a switch and decided I really can do this. I got serious about getting healthy New Years day of this year, and even though I woke up to really, really yummy smelling pancakes, I'm still going strong. Gluten has been a successful focal point for me and as a side effect, it cuts my sugar consumption drastically by default. I think this is working for me because I know people in real life this worked for, and because the health benefits of no gluten are so all or nothing so every time temptation comes my way, it's not just the thought of a "little cheat" but starting all over again. And honestly this has made me feel like I really do have willpower which I was beginning to believe I lacked completely. While I'm typing I do have to mention how truly awesome Sparkpeople has been. I am inspired, motivated, and encouraged daily by friends, family, and complete strangers on this sight. So
We can do this.
