So last Wednesday I made a pact that I would eliminate sweets from my diet for one week. Sweets meaning cakes, cookies, ice cream, candy...all the stuff I really love. The only exception is that I could have one 'dessert' in that weeks time! I'm one day away from meeting my goal and I will say it was much easier then I thought it would be. I've been eating apples, fruit smoothies and yogurt; they curb my sweet tooth just fine. There have actually been only a couple of times that I've wanted to eat sweets but thankfully I've resisted. I feel really good about myself that I did this...I think a couple of pounds have been shed in the mean time!! Hooray!! I pray, with God's strength, this will be the jump start I need to lose those extra pounds. My next step is to fit in exercise on a more regular basis! I've got a few ideas of what I'd like to do I just need to get up and do it!!
