Completed Mini-Challenges

Weeks 1 to 2

Give up one dessert or snack you normally eat

Guidelines:
For the first week, we're going to give up one dessert or snack that you NORMALLY eat. i.e. if you normally eat ice cream after dinner..not this week. Or, if you normally eat a cookie/candy at work..refrain from it the first week. BTW, this will definitely help you lose 1 pound the first week if you're a dessert/snack eater. Good luck!
