Have I mentioned. . .

that I should really stop eating sugar? That I really want to stop eating sugar? That I feel so much better every time I do. . . for the three days that I am able to do it?

Well I should and I do. But, might I also mention:


But there are lots of hard things that are worth doing. Maybe, just maybe, this is one of them. And maybe, just maybe, I'm strong enough to do it. Or, maybe it is is the doing it that I will become strong.

That's deep.


  1. It is hard! I kept hoping that it would get easier after time, but I fall off the wagon so easily and so completely, it's discouraging. Glen and I are putting our boots back on January 2nd.

  2. Yeah,
    I'm starting today. If I wait until January, I would probably go into a chocolate coma with the amount of last hurrahs I would give myself in the next week. It could get ugly. Good luck!

  3. You are probably going to be angry with me. If so, I"m sorry. I say this only out of affection and love.

    Is is possible that being entirely sugarfree isn't actually possible for a mom of three kids who lives in a world that has sugar in it?

    I just have seen you try and try and try and beat yourself up over and over again. At some point, it just seems painful.

    Is there not some more moderate position to take?

  4. Carrie, I totally appreciate your sentiment and think you are right on. I am sure there is a better way, and I'm striving to find it! I can't seem to figure out moderation. But, deprivation certainly isn't working either. Still thinking. . .
