  215. Allissa Thimesch says:

    My name is Allissa Thimesch and I’d love to join the challenge! I will be giving up candy. I tried before to give up all sweets – candy, cookies, cakes, etc… And I know I NEED to, but I think it was too much at once for me and I failed MISERABLY!! So, I’ll give up candy and REALLY limit the other sweet things. Smaller portions.. Fewer times a week..

    • Denise Parker says:

      I totally understand Allissa. I chose to give up candy and cookies–those seem to be the easiest for me to indulge in. Saying I was giving up all sugar or all sweets was too overwhelming. I have tried it before and I just became so obsessed with sugar that it was all I thought about. Cutting out candy and cookies will be cutting out alot for me. We got this!!

I really want to make the move to a vegan lifestyle but I know I can’t do that if I don’t give up the cheese. I usually but vegan rice cheese but I think that just keeps my craving for cheese going and sometimes i will use regular cheese so I’ve decided I just need to do away with it completely.
