It’s amazing how fast time flies, I can hardly believe that our 8 weeks is finished, it has now been about 10 weeks since we started Sarah Wilson’s ‘I Quit Sugar’ program.  For the first 6 weeks we stuck fast to the plan, and although it was a challenge at times it was an excellent learning experience that I would highly recommend.
