These are all GREAT stories and inspiration, seriously, I love it!!
I will start drinking more water- I've noticed I'm drinking it all the time, instead of going out for a smoke, I drink a few cups of water. Not the same, but we can pretend.
I cannot wait to get to the point where I no longer crave sugar, and I love all the suggestions for creatively bowing out of workplace peer pressure. The meetings thing I still have not figured out, so I might just tell my boss I need to eat beforehand because of 'blood sugar.' Or say something about 'lady issues' if all else fails- no way he'll want details.
