No Sweets for a month! What am I thinking?

Tomorrow is the day I will start. I will resist every urge in my body to eat something sweet. All to often, I give in to that urge, and that is how I have come to depend on my dear friend, Sugar!
The idea came to me about a week ago. I realized that I eat/drink way too much sweet stuff during the day. So, I decided to see if I could go a whole month, 30 days, without eating or drinking anything sweet. This includes all candy, cookies, brownies, chocolate, cake, diet-soda, flavored drinks, etc... Just because something is diet, doesn't mean that it is good for you. Also, I will only be drinking water. I know this sounds crazy, but I think I need to do this. I will be eating a lot of fresh fruit. I guess that is my way of getting something sweet, but it is something that is good for me. I'm not doing this as a diet, or as a way to lose weight. I am simply doing this because I need a change in my life. Wish me luck!

you will be able to do it, you are too stubborn not to.
