give me a cookie!!!!

Day 6 of no sugar/sweets and it's getting hard...every tasty treat i see on tv or in person makes my mouth water :( but I can already tell a change in my body and the way it feels. A) i haven't had that "ooohhh i shouldnt have eaten that" feeling and then end up feeling like crap all evening long and B) I have been "Puffy" so to know, when your mid sections just seems to feel a little puffier then normal, well, i'm linking mine to my past sugar intake. Since swearing off sugar for the month of January I've shed a minimum of 300 calories a day in my diet, which will add up to a LOT come Sunday! I am personally very proud of myself for holding so strong for almost 1 full week (sugar free in my lattes, no sugar free candy, no sugar rim on my martini) since everyone who knows me didn't think i'd last 24 hours :) take that

Dear New Year:

As i previously made known, my news year resolution is to try something new for a full month, every month this year...I picked January to be my "no refined sugar" month....Day 1 down. I'm a big sweets and candy person, and if this doesn't actually kill me, it's going to be a miracle. I've also decided to chart my weight a few times a week, to see if just the simple act of refined sugar from ones diet is enough to produce a minor weight loss. I'm a fairly healthy person (sugar aside) so i'm very interested to see where this leads.....hummm...

Day 2, no sugar....and i'm dying for a piece of dark choco :( mer.
