The one thing I would like to change is to eat less sugar, and be more aware of hidden sugars in foods such as yogurt and iced teas.

So glad you are taking part in the Care4YouToo Challenge! Quick question, since getting fit can be a HUGE goal or change for many -- what factors will tell you when you are fit so that you know you've achieved your goal? For example, I feel fit when I wake up with energy, not fatigue, fit into my clothes comfortably, and can walk at a 3.8 mile pace with medium breathing and no sore muscles the next day.

I went from 4 cups of coffee a day down to 2. That's a lot of cream and sugar! Also low-fat cheese even though I hate it, and absolutely no fried foods. Stay tuned for more!
