Monday, July 25, 2011      3 comments

The cravings are beginning to subside. I'm realizing that I will likely have to bring my own snacks to any birthday gatherings and if I want certain sauces I'll have to probably make them myself....might not be a bad idea. I've got someon... Read more

I can't believe I actually said "no" to an ice-cream sandwich today! One of the docs brought some by for us and I was fortunately up in the ICU and didn't even get near them. When the charge nurse told me about it, I just asked her if she'd li... Read more

For the first time since at least 2000, I am finally below 175 lbs!!!! I'm still sugar, sugar substitute and soda free. I do need to start paying better attention to food labels, though. My peanut butter's got sugar in it! I had bought it pr... Read more

Two weeks w/o sugar, artificial sweeteners or sodas. Yippeee! Expectations = future resentments. Rather than go into details, I just need to sit back, take a deep breath, and let it go. I have noticed that the higher my expectations, the ... Read more

No sweets, no soda. Craving ice cream again, but didn't give in. Driving back from my folks, I was thinking about the different places to stop for lunch. Nothing particularly healthy came to mind except Jason's Deli of The Grit in Athens. ... Read more

Another day with no sweets and no soda. Tempted again with yummy looking lemon icebox pie and cookies at the funeral, but I resisted. The fresh fruit was much yummier! It was good to see my cousins that I hadn't seen in a while; toward th... Read more

My aunt (mom's sister) passed away today, peacefully. At first, I wanted soda, or candy, or something sweet to make me feel better. That's what I would have done before; that's what I did when her brother died back in '92, except I probably had... Read more
