Challenges are there to overcome - Day 5


As Day 5 draws to a close, I have the final list of participants to share with you and a great sentiment from one of our participants.  When I asked Bonnie, a local participant how she was doing she  reported, "Better than I thought Mel - 4 days with no coffee, alcohol and dairy! Decaffeinated green tea is filling in quite nicely! Just a small manageable headache..." and Sue from Nottingham wrote, "Three days with no sugar. Not using replacement, but do have a sprinkle of cinnamon on an occasional coffee." Now, for a rather impressive list, Elisabeth wrote, "
No sugar, No coffee, No white carbs, No alcohol, No dairy, No wheat, No grains, No soft drinks." And let me tell you, she is feeling much better for it and the weight is coming off, which is an added bonus for her. This challenge is not a weight loss challenge as such, it is a challenge to clean up your diet and in so doing you may encounter some rather desirable side effects, like more energy, better sleep, weight loss or improved digestion.

Nina in Oregon joined the replacement challenge and committed to ditching sugar and flour- the white stuff. She went to a wedding and this was her attitude going into it which I love.She wrote. "I'll find a way to continue the challenge. Obstacles are there to overcome!" What a great attitude to have.

Crystal from Regina, SK, Canada sent in a pic of her Beef Satay Soup which she had on day 4 for lunch.
