I am attempting to do something that is very hard for me....and even as I write this, I can tell that I'm going into withdrawal...but I am committed. I am giving up SUGAR for two weeks!!! From now until Valentine's Day, I have challenged myself to go without any kind of cookie, candy, or processed sugar. I think Scott and Taylor are taking the challenge with me, although I think Taylor's already fallen off the wagon and Scott is a machine, so he doesn't offer me any commiseration. I'm going to have to find a crutch to get me through these first couple of days....pretzels, fruit, crackers...something munchy...then I think I'll be okay. I'll keep you posted on my progress and let you know if it makes me feel any better. I think it will. Wish me luck!
