16lbs Gone!

Well, on this sugarless journey I've learned a lot.  I've learned that I can live without sweets.  I've  learned that a piece of fruit is even more satisfying than a handful of cookies.  (I really didn't know that before.)  I've learned that sugar puts on a lot of pounds.  But most of all I've learned that I'm not deprived when I don't eat a cookie or pastry.  In fact I'm taking care of myself.  I've lost 16 lbs and have left 2 decades of poundage behind me.  Here's to the many more days ahead of feeling better and looking great!
