  1. Hey, Megan! Sooooo glad you're doing well on the challenge!!! :D We sure need some shining stars among us.

    I would imagine that giving up wine, once it has become a habit, would be hard. I know I'm having a hard time giving up my evening snack!

    In fact, I've just decided to add that as one of my goals--and just haven't had the courage to write it down. How ridiculous is that?!

    Great job! And thanks for providing the motivation for me to get that goal on paper.


  2. Glad to hear you are feeling good. Giving up the vino was difficult for us at first too. We both love red Italian wine. Somehow after a while we just seemed to forget about it. Though it does stare at me sometime from the wine cellar. Thankfully it isn't talking to me yet, LOL.
