You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.

ty :). i woke up this morning and my first thought was..mmmmm....brownies. but, thankfully my kids ate the last of them yesterday. i went to the food store last night and picked up crunchy veggies to snack on when i feel the pull to eat a cookie.
Keeping my chin up... guarded, but up :)

ty for your message. although i know this will be tough, i really am determined to get through this challenge and it is only day one. after a few days, i hope i feel better about it. and, maybe some of my, what i believe to be sugar induced headaches will subside as well.
Dear JO74555, you are in the right place and with the right challenge. I already did my 4 weeks as sugar has always been a problem for me and my father has type 2 diabetes and I want to avoid this too. I found the challenge really made me think about sugar differently and I found cutting down on it (and cutting it out altogether) was made easier by the support I got from the group. Stick with it - you can do it!

i, like many others, am doing this so i can prevent diabetes as i've already been warned that i am pre-diabetic. i'm afraid of all the medical issues associated with diabetes, like going blind and losing limbs, etc. i have a terrible sweet tooth and love all things bread. this is gonna be a long haul and i tend to get pissy when the road stays too rocky for too long. so..along with the challenge of limiting my sugar intake, i am also challenged in my attitude. :/
