    Whooo! All done and with a grand total of 426. I did much better than I expected going into the Challenge. I didn’t experience any major life changing differences, but I definitely had fun shaking up some routines. I will stick with the five minutes of stretching every morning, because that has helped with my back. And I’ll be better about filling up my water bottle in the morning, since I’ll drink it if it’s there. I’ll happily go back to my dairy and my beer (I am from Wisconsin after all!) but it felt good to know that I can go without if I want. I control my habits, they don’t control me! Thanks to Ginny for organizing, to all of my fellow Challengers for the support and encouragement, and of course thanks to @lisadamico for getting me to do this in the first place and for helping me through it every step of the way.

    • Congratulations and come back for more!!

    • Good work @a_williams63! I like your line: I control my habits, they don’t control me. This is so true and good for all of us to know. This is exactly why I go without alcohol for a large part of the TWC. It’s always good to shake things up and get out of our comfort zones. Thank you for joining us!

    • Agree! discipline outweighs motivation.
