I’m keeping it simple with a few thoughts.. I was struggling a bit last week and I put it out there honestly. I got such wonderful support and that kept me on track. The beginning of this journey, 2 and 1/2  months ago, I came to realize that the only way for me to accomplish what I want to accomplish this year was to give it my all! This change can’t happen a little bit. While I’ve had many wonderful people say to me, “you have to give in to your cravings once in a while.” I say, ‘I don’t think so.’ I believe we have to “keep our eyes on the prize”. THE MUCH BIGGER PICTURE. I’ve had a few moments that weren’t perfect, I accept them and keep going. I know many people who can’t drink alcohol and are successful today because they haven’t touched a drop in 10 and  20 plus years. They understood the consequences of what happens to them when they drink. I’m sure they wouldn’t be successful today if they hadn’t changed their behavior and abstained. There is controversy today over whether or not sugar can be an addiction. I believe it can be, from my experience. I know what happens to me when I have sugar.
Another person would say “no, it’s will power”. Well right now I have the will power to stay off it. (Gratefully)

I keep promising not to make a big deal about what the scale says but in 16 days I’ll reach 3 months. I am hoping to be down 30 pounds. I won’t be upset if I’m only down 26, 27 or 28 but I am hoping to round it up to 30.  I’m 25 pounds down and feeling so much better in so many ways then I did just 2 and 1/2 months ago.
