Well, kiddos, I'm taking a stand. I'm saying "NO" to sweets for a full three weeks. It's said that it takes 21 days to form a habit. Well, by darn, I'm gonna break the maddening cycle of licking my lips and salivating over sweets--of course, until I stuff my mouth full of them.
Now, I make myself out to be someone who has a large tub of ice cream to my chest 24-7. No, no, I just know that this is something I could do better at. Work my mind-over-matter skills in this part of my diet department. And hopefully loose some weight in the process. Yippee!
So, I started the 3 weeks free of sweets on Sunday, May 20. And I expect myself to stay true to my goal. Therefore, I've invited my sister-in-law to join with me in my fight against the candy bar, brownie, dish of ice-cream, etc... I've gotta have someone to report to, right?
And she is going sweet-less with me. What a good sister-in-law to help out! BTW: She's awesome!
So, have you ever taken a stand and given up sweets, soda pop (read my last post here for more about soda pop or coke or whatever you call it), biting your nails, picking your nose (haha), etc...??? What helped you to succeed? Was it having someone else help you? Have you ever reported to a CP to help you finish your book?
And by golly, if you want to join me in my goal to conquer sweets or whatever, let me know. We can work on it together!
PS: I'll keep you updated on my blog posts of how I'm doing. Right now, I have 5 days of no sweets under my belt. 16 to go! And I hope to have many more sweets free days after that!
