No sugar added

July 31st 2009 was my last taste of purely refined sugar for a while. I was planning on going off in July with Liz, but my brother kinda discouraged it and decided him and I would both start in August instead. And it's been five days and I am holding strong. My recent temptations have been sugar cookies, Roxberry's, Wendy's Frosties, Sprite (my ULTIMATE craving!), brownies, chocolate covered pretzels, strawberry shortcake, and lemonade ice cream pie. A lot, but I have been able to hold myself back with fruit. I don't understand it, but suddenly apples and peaches and plums are my way of eating sweet. And it has encouraged me to eat healthier too. It's been REALLY hard, but I can do it! I have faith in myself ;-)
