I gave up foods with added sugar about 73 days ago. The first few days was hard. I was super grumpy. Tired. I didn’t feel good. But I have stuck with it and have lost 20 pounds! The first 10 were easy to lose, they came off pretty quickly but it has been slow going ever since. Lots of water. Not enough sleep. This is definitely something that I can do for the rest of my life. Behavior modification is uncomfortable but very worthwhile. On a side note, it has been 84 days since I shaved my head for St. Baldrick’s. My hair is growing back so slowly and I am saving a fortune on shampoo!
