Sorry for taking so long to post! I went two whole days without phone or email waiting for my phone company to fix it. I had a decidedly unchristian phone call via cell phone with them yesterday about 4:15. It was fixed within the evening. Why do you have to be so mean to get things done?

I am officially a sugar buster. I have been off sugar since Wednesday. Being a good mom and wife, I have, of course, insisted my family go along for this ride. Everyone is being a good sport except Erik who seeks to sabotage me at every turn. He bought the kids cotton candy at Spring Carnival last night. He never does that. He claims he forgot. Likely story.

It is going so much better than I thought it would be. I am not dying for sugar like I thought I would be and I am not thinking ahead to all the sugar I will be missing. Maybe a little-one day at a time. This is not a diet. This is forever and if I lose some weight that will just be a plus. This is a for my health move because diabetes is so rampant in my family. Pray for me!!

Gotta go, homebased business fair today where I will be on site trying to snag a few for The Pampered Chef!

Good for you with the sugar thing. You're a stronger woman than I am!

I gave up refined sugar the first of Feb. I had tried it before and did not succeed--but I was getting pretty desperate. I might blog about it some time, but I've lost 15 pounds--and I wasn't really obsese--but I did want to loose about 20 pounds. It's really been the easiest thing I've ever done to loose weight--and I WAS a chocolate freak--I LOVED my chocolate. NO MORE!!

I really, really, really think you can do it!!!

that's funny that you phrased it that way "a decidedly un-Christian phone call" like we aren't allowed to get angry or think that people are idiots.

By unchristian, I actually meant that I got so lost in being mad about not having a phone, I no longer treated him like a person. He was just the object of my venting and although I did not cuss him out, I did not treat him the way I should have. I regret it. Especially since he had probably been taking alot of crap all day. It is unchristian to forget the other person is a person and treat them badly because the two year old in you wants her phone and computer back!!

At least you recognize that you were not nice to the person... I know lots of people who behave in that manner and think nothing of it. Next time you will probably do better just because you recognize it this time.

WOW -- great for you on the sugar thing. I wish I could do that. I've tried to time and time again, but I have to admit I am totally addicted to my sugar, whether it's in juice or soda or cereals, etc.
Keep us posted how you do.
Thanks for the sweet note on my blog. And I have had people tell me before that I look like Gwenyth Paltrow -- I don't see the resemblance, but it is weird to have several people tell me that! :)
