Is it real? Did I really make it to day 28? I should pinch myself.
Twenty-eight days without sugar. And, because of this, 28 days of sticking to my healthy eating plan. Today I weighed 5 pounds less than I did 28 days ago. My pants are looser, my bras are looser, my shirts are more comfortable. And I know it has to be fat I lost, not just water weight because I haven't been limiting salt.
It seems everyday there are treats calling to me, trying to sabotage my efforts. But everyday the effort it takes to resist them is less and less. Just today someone had brought a plate of brownies and rice krispies treats to class, and it didn't even cross my mind to go and get one. Either the magnetic poles of the planet switched, or it actually was all me; I didn't need the feather to fly-- the power was inside me all along, I just didn't realize it.
Better late than never. I better ride this train while it's still going strong. Let's see what another 28 days without sugar will do for my body and mind.
