Going public with my addiction

SUGAR.
I am completely addicted. So I am letting you all know that i am going off sugar for the month of May.
I know there is sugar in just about everything, so I am talking candy, chocolate, cake, cookies, ice cream, sugar cereal, popcicles, etc. I am hoping that this will cleanse my body of it, so my cravings will be less.
I wanted to make this public, so I would actually do it. There ya have it! Wish me luck!

Does that mean David gets your share?

good luck! We switched to evaporated cane juice about a year and a half ago and haven't looked back!

Good luck! It'll be hard, but it'll also be totally worth it. My mom has been off of sugar for 6 years, and she is so much happier, not to mention a ton healthier, too! =D

Good luck! I don't think I could do it, so more power to you.

You're crazy! But you did it once before (well, pretty close). I know what works: Go to another country for a few months and when you get back, you won't feel like eating sweets. Odd, I know, but it's happened to me twice now.

I am so impressed, I could never do this!

Ha ha good luck Melissa! I hardly ever ate sugar until I married your brother, and now he goes and buys it all the time and now I find myself craving it! I hate it!

That is a good idea, I need to be healthier too. Good luck:)

Good Luck....I've tried that and never succeeded so I tried to just have 1 treat a day, or a week, and that seemed to work better.

Those pictures below are so cute. Did you know the teething tablets have coffee in them?

We just rub our finger on his gums and freeze teething toys and let him suck on them.

Good luck!

Wow... you really are an inspiration to us all. Though I do have to admit- I was looking for premade juice today and it was disgusting how many of them had as one of the first ingredients high fructose corn syrup! I wanted juice not SUGAR! I finally went to the frozen juices and got it there. Keep us posted with how you fare!

Carissa said...

Oh good luck! I'm sitting here eating my chocolates admiring your bravery! hehe I know what you mean though. It IS addicting. The more I eat the more I want it. :) My safety right now is that we don't give Ashlyn any so I don't have any unless she's in bed or down for a nap. Good luck!

Kellen and Erin Hansen said...

Good luck! You can totally do this!

Amy said...

Good luck!! I don't think I could do it, but I know you can. Maybe sneaking in more sleep would help too. I always want sugar when I'm tired.

Sarah said...

You will be great! I don't think I could ever do it... Not any time soon anyway. Let us know how it goes.

Katie said...

You are so brave! Good luck!

Brad said...

easily the worst idea of 2009.

Brad said...

thought it over, and i can't think of a worse idea in 2008 either.
