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.

Tonight is a great night. I had a hard time last night with a huge craving for something sweet. I prevailed and did not give in. Tonight, no craving. I feel successful and so much stronger than ever before. I know I can beat the sugar devil. Thank you all for your great support
It's 8:43 p.m. and I have a hankering for a sweet treat right now. I am having a mini war with my good and bad self. I want the good to prevail, but the bad is really good and pulling me in. No, not doing it, no sweets tonight. Drinking some ice cold water right now to stave off the sweet devil.
I really like this thread where we can state our accountability towards sugary stuff. Thank you, Turtle.
I did this challenge and still I'm standing by it. It changed a lot for me in a very positive way. I do not pretend to be totally sugar free as for looking for hidden sources of sugar. I really wanted to remove all the sweets and desserts that used to drive me nuts in all senses, and been free of them for over 6 weeks.

doing great with no sweet treats, but my son sat in front of me yesterday eating my favorite, almond joy and it was a king size one. I did have an urge for it but I let it slide and didn't think about it again. woohoo.
So glad you have a "buddy" who will listen and cheer you on...and what a great idea to speak it out loud to help you over the bump in the road. We can show we are vulnerable to the sugar attack yet we can also show we want to move toward an improved life by saying "no" to sugar. Just like hear people say "no to drugs" or alcohol or whatever numbing system they use.
My aim is to encourage, facilitate and restore health, happiness and hope in harmony with LIFE in all its fullness.
