Well, I didn't do so well yesterday with my challenge. I ate 2 cupcakes. emoticon I was ok with it at first saying to myself, I'll just start over tomorrow but then my daughter saw me and got really mad. I have these sticky notes that I've placed on my calendar that I am marking off the days I've went without sugar and she grabbed that off and said, "You don't even deserve this!" And tore it in half. lol I'm sorry. I know it isn't funny but she's like my own little Bob or other personal trainer. A little harsh though, no? lol

It did make me feel bad because I asked her why she was so mad about it, and what she said really got me. She said, " I was so proud of you! I really thought you were gonna do it this time and then you just ate those cupcakes!" Yeesh! How's that for a guilt trip? I don't think it gets any worse than disappointing your child. It has lit a fire in me though and you better believe no white sugar will be touching these lips again for the next 30 days. Yep, gotta start over my countdown. It's hard. It's almost like quitting cigarettes. Well, I don't think it is that hard but it's similar. But just because I slipped up doesn't mean I have to quit. I'm just going to recommit and really do it this time. I want to make my daughter proud of me and show her that food doesn't control me! I can do this! emoticon

    WOW! That was a shocker to you I am sure, but I am proud for you that you have a daughter that cares so much. The Biggest Loser here this year was about generational that follow their parents was heartbreaking to see what some of those kids ate and looked like..not saying you are that way...just saying it is proof that kids do learn from examples of their parents..and your daughter looks up to you and obviously is looking out FOR you which is touching..and so important. I envy you that..and I give Kudos to your daughter for looking out for her mom!!!!

    I was just thinking of coming back to your page to check on you when I saw your blog post! I'm on day four and have the sugar hangover today - I'm a hurting unit!

    Dust yourself off, and try again. Your daughter can then be proud of you for never quitting, and you will have taught her such a lesson. I know you can do this!

    Good luck! emoticon

    Amanda your pic says it all. You are such a burst of energy, that I know you can do this. Not sure where you got the cupcakes, but for me I cant bring any of that in the house or it's down hill all the way. If it makes you feel any better hubby bought a cake and I had 2 slices yesterday. The sad thing was I didn't even want them and I ate them. They didn't even taste good and I ate another. Grrrrrrrr! It's ok to start over this time do it with a vengeance. You have kids get out of here, you look so young. You actually remind me of our daughters cheer coach. I am doing P90X too on week 10. You can join us on the P90X team if you like.

    Sugar is a drug. It's a substance addiction just like cigarettes. That's why it is so hard to give it up. Thank goodness you have a little Bob/Jillian on your hands but oh my - that's really harsh! :-) You can do it. Start over and try again.

    Are you a apart of the challenge on here that helps you get away from sugar in 28 days I believe? If not you might really enjoy it, I did it when I first got on here about 9 months ago and it helped me so much.

    Don't feel too bad, it happens. Congrats to you for no tthrowing in the towel and starting over:)
