Sugar challenge

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

I started the sugar challenge a little over a week ago. I have always craved sugary foods and it is really hard at Family gatherings because we all love sweets. I have tried to stop sweets before but I always give in. Not this time. I am committed to eating better so my kids can see what a healthy lifestyle is and so I can feel better about myself. My wonderful husband is my "sugar buddy" to keep me accountable. He calls me his "sugar mama!" Lol. I was still on the fence about sugar until I heard Autumn Calabrese say "your desire to change has to be greater than your desire to stay the same." Something kicked in for me. Since then I repeat this every time I am thinking of caving...so far it's worked! So here is to another day of success!

    That's a fantastic quote in your story, love it.
    I often think about all these years I've wasted and now that I'm disabled and had been using a cane and wheelchair the past 5 yrs and a best friend died due to his large size this past year.. it was time.

    No matter the pain, no matter the time I had to do this for me or I was going to die and have to have someone constantly care for me if I lived.

    The mind is a powerful thing and yes, until someone finally says "I WILL HAVE THIS!" And, they don't look back, it's not going to happen for anyone. It's about making a commitment to yourself.

    If we cannot commit to ourselves how can anyone else accept a commitment from us to them? I want to be here for my kids and my grandkids and for my mom who just lost her husband of 52 yrs (my dad)... I want to be ME again, and a person I haven't seen in 20 years.

    If you want this like nothing else in the world, you will find a way. Good luck
