Thank you for the snowflake goodie! Have a healthy week!
Crying in the kitchen floor over sugar. LOL I can so relate to that !! No one has any idea unless you have that addiction. There is another page on Sparks that is Sugar Addicts or something like that. It's a good page also.
Have a real heart to heart with your husband. Tell him for 1 month you really want to have no sweets in the house because you need that help. Guys like to help many times and if he feels he is helping maybe he will do it. I told my whole family this last time that I just can't be around it. It took me so many months to work up to breaking that habit again. I know EXACTLY how you feel. It's really hard. I told them if they have it in the house it better be hidden well or I"m throwing it in the trash (yes, I have to pour water or something on it or I'll grab it back out).
Good luck , you know you can do it and know you'll feel better afterwards. It takes 3 weeks for me to stop having the terrible cravings. I also stop all fast food because it has so much sugar it triggers it also I realized. Let me know how it goes. After the 3 weeks, I can't have more than 2 "treats" a week or it triggers it again.

It was great to hear from you! I'm glad you are back...how are you doing? I am doing well...still at a plateau, but still hanging in there. I hope December has gotten off to a good start for you. I'm here if you need support. Hugs, Pixie
"The past doesn't define you, your present does. It's okay to create a vision of the future because it affects your behavior in the "now," but don't dwell on past mistakes. Learn from them and focus those lessons in the moment. That’s where change can really happen." -Jillian Michaels
Thank you for commenting on my blog, "It's Okay To Enjoy a HoliDAY." Wishing you a very happy and healthy holiday season!
Little steps make all the difference in the world. If you use butter, just use half of what you would have. I haven't used oil in a recipe in years. I use applesauce in place of it and no one knows any better.
My kids/husband wasn't crazy about the eating healthy "kick" they thought I was on, but when I fix the dinner, I add extra veggies to mine and smaller portions of what they have.
VERY seldom do I go without anything. I'll have smaller portions or a different option. They see me weigh and measure everything (someday they will know what to do if weight ever becomes an issue for them).
I told them I had to get all the sweets out of the house because I have a HORRIBLE sweet tooth. They weren't crazy about it, but learned to deal with it. Once in a while I'll buy something or have a special treat, but junk food is never needed to be kept around all the time. I don't want to say they can't have it ever because I don't want them growing up with issues of the need to have it and binging as adults themselves because it was "outlawed" at home. It takes me 3 weeks of cold turkey to get past the terrible sugar withdrawal I go through. I'm past that now and can have some "candy" in the house, but it's out of sight and usually something I don't like (months ago I would have eaten it anyway).
And I LOVED Merlin !! I'm just starting to watch Dr.Who starting with first episodes when I have the chance.
