Did you know that it takes 21 days to form a habit? Habits are created by repetition. The best way old habits may be broken is to form new habits, to counteract and replace the undesirable ones. Form new mental habits paths over which to travel, and soon the old ones will become less distinct.
So, congratulations! You went thru the hardest part of “sugar Detox”— the first 21 days. The next week is going to be so easy.
Most of us became accustomed with what to eat and not eat. Some became frustrated because I didn’t give out a “diet plan.” But if I did that, then you will always look for me for support. The people who give out diet plans are usually the ones who want to make money. I would rather give you tools for life and learn what makes your body feel as good as can be. Granted, it may take a few trials and errors, but at the end of the day you will have a way to eat for the rest of your life.
I keep on repeating myself, but I am so ecstatic about what we are doing. I am so energized by everyones excitement. I will give you a few examples; I was running down Ocean Parkway and I passed a good friend of mine, Flo Tebele on the other side. She hollers out from across the street, “I’m on the detox!!” I big smile spreads across my face. Another friend confides in me that she bought whole wheat food for the first time in her life. I instantly glowed.
And another close friend, Celie Haddad whispers in my ear that she is on the “Sugar Detox since she became influenced in August! That’s almost 10 months! Celie is going to share her story with us on May 7th, our celebration day.
Speaking of celebrations, my birthday is on Saturday May 1. I so want to plan a birthday party for myself, and I would want nothing more than to share it with you! (I need to figure out a way to do that!) I guess, Eddie will just have to do! (Though he’s not sugar detoxer) and no birthday cake for me! Don’t feel bad, I am ecstatic to say no!
